Jones married fellow Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Katya Jones (nee Sokolova) in August 2013. During the 2018 series, media interest in Katya's relationship with her series partner Seann Walsh led to both publicly apologising for their conduct. After six years of marriage, on 18 August 2019, Neil and Katya announced their separation. The Walsh incident was partly blamed for the split, but the couple insisted they would remain friends and would both continue to appear on Strictly. He confirmed in August 2020 that he was in a new relationship, his partner was later revealed to be Colombian dancer Luisa Eusse. In December 2020, Jones and Eusse split. Eusse stated that she was single at a party simultaneously having broken COVID-19 Government Regulations. In late August, Jones and Love Island contestant Chyna Mills appeared on a red carpet together leading to speculation of a relationship, which was later confirmed in September.
