Strictly’s Neil Jones reveals he’s training for surprising new job as dance show ends

STRICTLY Come Dancing star Neil Jones has revealed he's training for a surprising new job.

The professional dancer is training to be a tattoo artist now this year's show has come to an end.


"Apparently you can’t teach an old dog new tricks but that doesn’t mean we don’t like to learn," he wrote on Instagram, sharing a snap of himself tattooing a willing volunteer.

"I can’t wait to keep improving my skills," he added.

Neil called himself the 'Ginger Artist' in the post that quickly racked up over 4,000 likes.

And Strictly judge Shirley Ballas was quick to support Neil's new hobby.

"I’ll have one @mr_njonesofficial I need to add to my collection," she commented.

Meanwhile, things are looking up for Neil, 39, who has asked his girlfriend to move into his luxury pad.

The pro dancer is said to have gone “head over heels” for model Sophie Lily Kerr — who shares underwear and bikini snaps with online fans.

The Sun told how his ex, Luisa Eusse, cheated on him with a woman.

He hooked up with her after splitting from Strictly pro Katya Jones, 32.
