STOP messaging my fans please

The catfish Instagram profile featured a name similar to Katya’s and her picture, but the star wrote: “Can catfish @katyaajones STOP messaging my fans please.”

She was then stunned when she received a message from the catfish demanding money to stop.

Katya they says they replied to her story, and typed: “Send me money to stop this.”

She then posted a screenshot of their exchange on her page and wrote: “Really?”

The account has since been deleted.

Katya has built up a following of more than 170,000 followers on social media and has recently shared sweet snaps of her new addition.

The dancer has adopted another dog called Chorizo, who gets on well with Crumble, the dog she shares with ex-husband Neil Jones.

Although Katya revealed she did feel “a bit jealous” when he decided to introduce their original pet to his girlfriend at the time, Luisa Eusse.

Neil has since split from the Colombian dancer, and still remains good friends with his former wife as they co-parent their canines.

Opening up on how it felt to see Crumble with the new person in Neil’s life, Katya said: “Neil did have a relationship for a while, so we’ve been through that. I was a little bit jealous of another person being with Crumble. 

“At the end of the day, she knows who her parents are and I’m pretty sure we will all be absolutely fine.

“We are adults and it’s about Crumble. As long as she is happy and we are making her happy and safe, that’s what’s important,” she added to Waggel magazine.

Katya and Neil ended their 11-year romance in August 2019.

The announcement of their split came a year after Katya was spotted kissing her Strictly Come Dancing partner Seann Walsh following a rehearsal session together.

Neil has previously opened up about the betrayal with The Sun, saying: “It was a shock. It was a major shock. I appreciated it of course that Katya told me, so I found out from Katya before it appeared.

“Straight away for me, I was more worried about Katya because I could see what was going to happen. It was a natural reaction.”

The couple also tried to make their marriage work, but according to Neil they “couldn’t” repair their union.

The 37-year-old also stated that the end of their relationship was “nothing to do” with Seann.

Both Katya and Neil continue to appear on Strictly and are good friends.

Although he has managed to date since their split, Katya has found matchmaking during lockdown to be difficult.

She admitted to trying apps, but quickly got “bored” and ended up deleting them.
