Strictly Come Dancing star Katya Jones reunited with her ex-husband Neil to celebrate his 39th birthday on Tuesday.
The professional dancer took to Instagram to share a glimpse at the wild birthday celebrations as the former couple made the most of the eased lockdown restrictions by heading out on the water for an epic boat party.
The 31-year-old TV star and her former flame laughed and giggled as they indulged in an array of water sports including wakeboarding, with a handful of close pals.
Taking to her Instagram stories, Katya posted a number of videos of the gang dancing and cheering on the boat while Neil showed off his water sports skills.
Katya wrapped up against the bitter UK breeze in an oversized coat, but the TV star admitted that she was still ‘freezing’ on the boat.
“I look like an Eskimo,” she wrote alongside one of the clips.
In another, she penned: “We are all having a boat party while birthday boy is freezing in the water.”
Katya also showed off her own wake-boarding skills as she posted a screenshot of herself dominating the waves.
The birthday celebrations didn’t stop there, however, as later on in the day, the Strictly star shared a number of throwback snaps of herself and her ex-husband.
The first snap showed Neil smiling for the camera with pals as he held a giant ‘Happy Birthday’ balloon in his hands.
In another, young Katya and Neil posed for the camera as they sat side-by-side looking almost unrecognisable from now.
Alongside her birthday tribute to Neil, Katya penned: “Happy Birthday @mr_njonesofficial.
“Geez, you’re getting old, but still full of life, energy, and positivity.
“Keep that smile on your face and keep that hair ginger!
“Sorry I used to straighten it (swipe for some embarrassing photos).
“May it be a great year for you!! Lots of love.”
Despite her kind words and gesture, Neil wasn’t too happy about the throwback photos being posted on social media.
In response to Katya’s post, the star joked: “I think these last pics need to be deleted and, forever.”
Katya and Neil announced their separation in September 2019.
Despite their split, the former couple have maintained an incredibly close bond and friendship.
