With only a few days to go before this year's Strictly Come Dancing final, the stars of the 2018 cast have been busy getting ready for one last hurrah - including disgraced comedian Seann Walsh. The 33-year-old, who dominated headlines for his drunken kiss with married dance partner Katya Jones, took to Instagram to share a video of himself panning towards his dance shoes, which he captioned: "One last time." The post comes shortly after he returned to the stage, where he reportedly made a comment about Katya's husband Neil Jones' sexuality.
According to The Sun, Seann quickly backtracked and told the audience he was "only joking". He allegedly said: "I'm the guy who kissed a gay man's wife - please don't report that. I'm only joking, I'm just here trying to make you laugh." Seann and his Strictly partner Katya found themselves at the centre of a media storm during their time on the show, after they were seen passionately embracing following a night out. Katya has been married to Neil since 2013, and Seann was in a relationship with girlfriend Rebecca Humphries at the time.
It was recently reported that Katya and Seann were snubbed from the Strictly nationwide tour line-up. Seann and Katya were forced to address their kiss on It Takes Two, with the celebrity comedian once again apologising for his actions. "I made a mistake, which I'm very sorry for - sorry for the hurt that I've caused," he explained. "You never think about the extent of the damage that you're going to do in a moment... I'm not perfect, far from it."
Speaking about splitting from his girlfriend, who penned a statement about the betrayal, he added: "Our relationship wasn't perfect. That doesn't mean I wanted it to end the way it finally did, and I'm very sorry for that. I feel it's also important for me to say that the people that know me the most, that love me, they know that I am not the person I'm being portrayed as. I'm still sorry for what I did, but it's very important for me to get that out there."
