STRICTLY star Katya Jones has opened up about how her mother gave her tough love when she felt her life was falling apart after THAT kiss.
The Russian professional dancer, 30, was caught snogging dance partner Seann Walsh, 34, in 2018 before splitting from fellow pro husband Neil, 37, last year.
Speaking on The Makers Podcast she confessed her Korean-born civil engineering graduate mother Tatiana Kim gave her the “kick up the a**e” she needed.
She said: ”It has been really hard."
"During Strictly last year I had a really bad, emotional moment, I called my mum on FaceTime because I didn’t want people to understand what I was saying."
"I felt so sorry for myself, I was in tears."
“I thought she was going to be nice to me and feel sorry for me, but she shouted at me: ‘Katya, stop crying right now and toughen up. What do you think that everyone in entertainment and the TV world is going to be nice you.’
“It was such a shock and it was a good thing it was exactly what I needed, I needed a kick up my arse."
“I stopped crying immidiately and went, ‘You’re right mum’.”
