Seann Walsh 'deeply regrets' kissing Strictly Come Dancing partner Katya Jones

Strictly Come Dancing’s Katya Jones and Seann Walsh apologise for drunken “mistake” after kiss

Strictly Come Dancing's Seann Walsh and Katya Jones apologise for 'drunken kiss'

The pair apologised in separate statements on social media after they were spotted kissing after a night out in London, despite both having romantic partners.

The 32-year-old comedian appeared alongside the Russian ballroom dancer on Strictly's spin-off show It Takes Two, in a bid fix any damage caused ahead of their Charleston on Saturday night.

But the pair have received backing from Morgan, who said he will make the effort to watch the programme because it will be "fantastically awkward" and that he "can't wait to watch them dance".

She told host Zoe Ball: "Obviously I apologise, and I can't apologise enough to everyone who it hurt and involved".

"But the main thing for me is that me and Neil are absolutely fine that's what matters to me the most".

One of their partners, however, wants the world to know she is not a victim in this.

Seann said: "I would rather not have to address this publicly but I feel I have to".

Katya is married to fellow Strictly pro dancer Neil Jones while Seann was in a relationship with actress girlfriend Rebecca Humphries, before she dumped him in a lengthy statement posted to Twitter.

However, Seann has now taken the opportunity to tell his side of the story - claiming he hasn't been portrayed accurately and that his relationship with Rebecca "wasn't perfect".

"I made a mistake which I'm very sorry for and for all the hurt I've caused".

"I'm still sorry for what I did, but it's very important for me to get that out there".

'It's important also to recognise that in these situations those who hold power over you are insecure and fragile, and their need for control comes from a place of vulnerability, ' she said, 'I think it certainly does in Sean's case.

Walsh said the kiss happened after they had had a couple of drinks.

"I'm not ideal, far from it, our relationship wasn't flawless. That doesn't mean I wanted it to end the way it finally did, and I'm very sorry for that".

'I have a voice and will use it by saying this to any woman out there who deep down feels worthless and trapped with a man they love: Believe in yourself and your instincts.

Walsh and Jones are set to continue to dance together on the BBC show, where so far their routines have included a jive and a paso doble to The Matrix theme tune.
