Speculation started to stir following comedian Seann’s jibe: “I’m the guy who kissed a gay man’s wife. ”
And Neil said there had always been “a lot of straight guys in the ballroom [dancing]. «
He added: “My mom always said, ‘It’s too bad you aren’t gay because we could go shopping together.’
“And I was like, ‘Whether I’m gay or not, there’s no way you’re taking forever.’ “
Despite his split from Katya, Neil recently said divorce proceedings were not at the center of their concerns.
“We’re still not divorced,” he told The Sun, “It’s something we’re still trying to work out but we haven’t started the process yet.
