Seann Walshe

They were the biggest scandal of this years Strictly Come Dancing. 

Pro dancer Katya Jones and comedian Seann Walshe were photographed drunkenly kissing while they were both in relationships and it caused massive outrage. 

And now Katya is back in Seann's arms for the show's finale this weekend and things are a bit awkward especially after Seann made a dig at Katya's husband Neil in his stand-up.

 Ahead of this weekend series finale, the group have reunited in a cosy snap.

Showing the group in rehearsals, it's captioned, ''Look who’s back! Practicing an epic group dance for Saturday. Let the countdown to the #Strictly final begin!''

Seann and Katya look happy in the picture, posing side by side – but nowhere near her husband Neil, who is beside Katie Piper. 

Seann had spoken about Neil in a stand-up gig where he called him ''gay''.

Just before the Strictly reunion, Seann had been talking about the whole scandal in a comedy routine.

He said, ''Before the show, the newspapers were complaining they didn't know who I was. You know who I am now, [explicit]. I’m the guy who kissed a gay man’s wife."

He added, ''Please don’t report that. I’m only joking. I’m just here trying to make you laugh."

The Strictly finale takes place this Saturday on BBC One at 6:30pm. 


He might not be on the judging panel anymore but that hasn't stopped him from wading into the scandals of Strictly.

Len Goodman has spoken out about the now infamous kiss between comedian Seann Walshe and his pro dance partner Katya Jones – that happened while the two were both in relationships

While Seann was dumped by his girlfriend, Katya and her husband, fellow pro dancer Neil Jones, seem to be going strong.

Now the former Head judge has said that he wasn't a fan of what happened but that it does keep people interested in the show. 

He told The Metro, ''I think the producers like all that. I think they probably…not saying they encourage it but I think they like it if it happens,''

He continued, ''If they’re both single then I think it doesn't matter. Not so much if one is married and it all splits up the happy home. I don’t like that at all.''

He added, ''But there’s been like Flavia Cacace and Jimi Mistry, they got married and they’re still married. And they were both single. So what’s wrong with that. Good, good for them. And everyone loves a love story. I think most years there’s been some sort of, 'Oooh what’s going on there?'''

An ambassador for Age UK, the UK'S largest charity working with elderly people, he has no worries about getting older himself.

He said, ''I’m fortunate because I’ve got my son, and I’ve got my daughter in law, and I’ve got my wife, and I’ll probably be the first one to pop my clogs.''

He continued, ''All I’ve said is, “Don’t put me somewhere awful, don’t dump me off somewhere.” ‘You’ve gotta have family, but as we know so many people haven’t got that and I feel so sorry for them. ‘That’s why Age UK is important. Anything I can do to help Age UK I will.''

Strictly hasn't been the same without Len – we hope he has a wonderful Christmas. 


Ah, Seann Walshe.

The villain of this years' Strictly Come Dancing.

The comedian in a long-term relationship with a woman who spent the weekends he was on the BBC show crying in the audience in support of him.

Then it transpired that Seann and his pro dance partner Katya had had a drunken kiss that was caught on camera by photographers – on his girlfriends birthday. 

We all know what happened next – public apologies, a public dumping for Seann and him getting the boot from the competition a couple of weeks later.

Now, Seann has addressed the whole situation with his at a gig at London’s Comedy Store.

The 32-year-old said that doesn't think he needs to explain himself – and reportedly got a lot of boos from the audience.

He said, ''I will tell you this and we will stop talking about it. But look, I don’t really need to explain myself but I will anyway.''

He continued, ''I was coming towards the end of my relationship, I was getting on with this girl. You spend a lot of time with your dance partner on the show and we went for a drink and one thing led to the other.''

He added, ''Most of you have seen the result. I actually started to think to myself, “Hang on, have I actually done anything that wrong?”

Seann had been banned from the Strictly live tour, with reports for the show saying that, ''The Strictly tour is a really wholesome, family-friendly event. It’s all about good, clean fun and we don’t think that a man who snogs married women in the street fits that image.”


It's the dramz  that just keeps on giving.

Comedian Seann Walshe might have been booted off Strictly Come Dancing a few weeks ago not long after he was pictured kissing married pro dancer partner, Katya Jones.

However, now it seems that the pair are to hit the dance floor together again, at the show's grand finale.

The news has come as quite a blow to Katya's husband Neil, who is also a pro dancer.

Poor aul Neil. 

Reportedly, Neil ''will be gutted as when Seann was voted off the show, he was glad to see the back of him.''

The general atmosphere on the show has been happier since the 32-year-old's departure and ''things are back on track in his marriage – so he’ll be gutted when Seann is back on set.''

Seann and Katya's drunken kiss was blamed on too much booze and the Russian dancer made a statement after it hit the media, claiming that it in no way reflected her marriage to Neil.

A Strictly spokesperson has said that, "Every year all of our celebrities are invited back for the grand final at the end of the series. This year is no different and we look forward to reuniting them all once more.”

Meanwhile, Seann's former girlfriend, actor Rebecca Humphries, has spoken out about how she has been rebuilding her life after Seann's cheating was exposed. 

She revealed on Instagram that she has penned a piece for Vogue Journal entitled, Rebecca Humphries On How Kindness Has Been Revamped In 2018.

She wrote, “Tales and accounts which have since been splashed throughout the entrance pages by full strangers about essentially the most private, deeply heartfelt side of my life.”

She continued, “However maybe the largest shock (no imply feat), has been of the 1000’s of people that recognised the Marvel Girl behind that assertion was on the similar time standing within the ruins of a shattered actuality – and their rush to supply humour, perspective and life-force to assist rebuild it.''

Strictly continues this Saturday on BBC One at 6:45pm.
