The dance professionals have been spotted laughing and larking around with Nancy giggling away while say on Neil’s lap as they enjoyed time off the current Strictly Live Tour
Strictly Come Dancing stars Neil Jones and Nancy Xu have been raising eyebrows by cavorting around behind-the-scenes of the current live show tour.
The 39-year-old divorced dance professional and 30-year-old fellow pro Nancy have been showcasing their fancy footwork up and down the country as the Strictly Live Tour 2022 has taken over arenas across the UK.
And it looks like the pair were having the time of their lives as they relaxed between shows while in Glasgow last weekend.
Photos have emerged of Neil and Nancy larking around together – with the Chinese dancer sat on Neil’s lap in a photo that’s circulated online.

A source told The Sun – who have published the snap: “Neil is certainly getting out there. They’re enjoying their time together.”
Neil split from model girlfriend Sophie Lily Kerr earlier this month after five months of dating – and after she had moved into his London home last October.
A source previously said: “Neil and Lily’s romance started as a whirlwind and it ended just as quickly.
“They made a lovely couple but their schedules made it difficult for them to look to the future.
“Neil became so busy with Strictly Come Dancing before Christmas and now he is out on a nationwide tour. It was impossible to keep that flame alive.”

He has since been linked to actress Sienna Hollen after the pair posted flirty interactions online.
Neil was famously married to Russian dance beauty, and fellow Strictly Pro, Katya Jones between 2013 and 2019.
The pair saw their marriage rocked by affair allegations in October 2018 when Katya was photographed kissing dance partner Seann Walsh.
The pair announced their marriage was over in August the following year – but have remained very close ever since.
Meanwhile, Nancy – who has been a pro dancer on Strictly since 2017 and last year was paired with CBBC presenter Rhys Stephenson – has been in a relationship with martial arts expert Mikee Michele for five years.
The lovers frequently shares photos of each other on their Instagram feeds – with Mikee recently declaring her “couldn’t be prouder” of Nancy after she made it to fourth place on Strictly at the end of last year.
The current Strictly Live Tour is nearing it’s climax after over three weeks of breathtaking performances in cities including Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle and Manchester.

This weekend, the cast and crew have taken over the O2 in London for the final run of performances.
Sunday night will see the stars take to the stage for the final time.
Neil shared his excitement about performing in the capital over the weekend, sharing a photo of himself sat in a flat via Instagram on Friday along with the caption: “Back in London Town tonight and I can’t wait. O2 are you ready?”
