He is fuming that comic Seann, caught kissing his wife Katya, joked at a gig that Neil was gay.
Neil, 35, and Seann, 33, are set to meet on Wednesday at group rehearsals for the BBC show’s grand final.
A source said: “Neil has been telling pals backstage he will confront him and ask him to explain himself. He thought the comments were unnecessary so wants to hear what Seann has to say for himself.”
Seann’s snide jibe, in a stand-up routine last week, came as Neil and Katya, 29, were axed from next year’s live Strictly tour.
BBC bosses had already dumped Seann fearing his fling with Katya will hurt the show’s family image.
Neil and Katya, wed for four years, also fear for their futures when new producer Sarah James takes over.
The source said: “They have been vocal that they are seriously worried about their jobs. Katya’s antics caused a lot of upset. Being excluded from the tour has also made them feel uneasy.”
A BBC source said line-up decisions will be made in the New Year.
