Neil Jones' romantic link with the Love Island bombshell has been confirmed after the couple was spotted loved-up in a summer gateway to the City of Lights.

According to Metro, Strictly Come Dancing professional Neil Jones is dating reality star Chyna Mills, who starred in this year's Love Island.

Romantic gateway to Paris

Rumors about the pair's romantic relationship first circulated earlier this month when Jones and Mills were photographed leaving a boozy after-party of the Reality TV Awards in Chelsea. Alongside Mill's co-star Giovanni Pernice, the couple was seen getting on a black taxi and holding hands passionately until they noticed a photographer was nearby and loosened their grip. Fans were left on tenterhooks as to whether the Strictly dancer has officially hit it off with Mills.

Just weeks later, Mills, 23 and Jones, 40, made headlines again as they enjoyed a romantic trip to Paris, where they stayed at the four-star Dadou Hotel - a boutique building near Place Charles De Gaulle. At the Capital of France, the pair were reportedly strolling the streets hand-in-hand before having lunch at the classic Au Cadet De Gascogne.

While the ex-islander sported a white hoodie and simple black jeans, Jones rocked a white blank T-shirt with blue jeans. As onlookers reported to The Sun, the lovebirds have visited landmark destinations of Paris such as the Eiffel Tower and Arc De Triomphe.

A source told the publication that Jones wants to do something special with Mills given his upcoming packed schedule ahead of Strictly's grand return later this year:

'It’s a new relationship and Neil probably wanted to do something special as they won’t be able to spend as much time together when the Strictly training sessions start.'

They added that both Jones and Mills 'looked delighted' in each other's company, saying:

'Paris is the perfect city for a romantic weekend and they both looked delighted to be there.'

The summer trip came after Mills opened up on a candid Instagram Q&A on Monday that she was visiting Paris with 'a friend'. Meanwhile, Jones previously answered one of his 241,000 Instagram followers, hinting at a 'special lady' in his life. He also told fans who were concerned about his mental health: 'I am in such a good place and feel very blessed with my life.'

Jones' last romance was two years ago

This is Jones' first relationship since he and Colombian dancer Luisa Eusse parted ways nearly two years ago. Before that, Jones was married to Strictly co-star Katya Jones from 2013 until 2019, shortly after Katya was photographed kissing her celebrity partner Sean Walsh. The exes have since remained on amicable terms, however, and still dance together as part of the professional line-up on the BBC show.
