It was the biggest scandal to ever happen on Strictly!

Seann Walsh was a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing back in 2018 and rocked the wholesome reality show when he was papped kissing his dance partner Katya Jones.

At the time the comedian was in a long-term relationship with his girlfriend Rebecca Humphries and Katya was married to fellow professional dancer Neil Jones.

On last night's episode of I'm A Celeb, Coronation Street actress and Seann's fellow campmate Sue Cleaver brought up the subject to give him a chance to tell his side of the story.

“It was just a kiss" Seann explained. "That was it. That was front page of every newspaper. To be totally honest with you, my poor girlfriend at the time then posted a statement and then that was the end of me.”

Sue asked if he managed to get back on good terms with his girlfriend to which he said "No. Oh god no. I said sorry."


Seann said having to apologise publicly on The Jonathan Ross Show whilst sat next to Will.I.Am and Samuel L Jackson was one of the most bizarre experiences of his life.

“And I have to say, probably the worst moment of my life.” he added.

Speaking later in the confessional hut, Seann expressed that while he hates revisiting that part of his life, it was nice to have people listen to him.
