In August 2019, fans of the BBC favourite show were left shocked and heartbroken after the couple announced that they were ending their six year marriage and 11 year romance.
Since the split, Neil went on to briefly find love with model Luisa Eusse, while Katya has remained tight-lipped on her love life.
Despite the split, the star told The Sun that she still wears her engagement ring.
She said: “I wear it all the time, it’s too pretty to take it off.
“And it was probably expensive. I don’t want to lose it so it stays on my finger. It’s a beautiful ring.”
She added: “I don’t have a problem with wearing it so I don’t see why anyone else should.”
Both Katya and Neil have been announced as dancers in this year’s Strictly Come dancing line up.
