Seann Walsh and Katya Jones have spoken out on Strictly Come Dancing's It Takes Two about their "kissing scandal".

After issuing statements on social media on Sunday night, Seann and Katya have been on the receiving end of a backlash and have kept out of the spotlight over the past few days.

Comedian Walsh and professional dancer Jones, who is married to another dancer on the programme, have both apologised for making a mistake after being pictured in The Sun kissing in on a night out.

Walsh was in a long-term relationship with actress Humphries, while Jones is married to fellow Strictly star Neil Jones.

"I have received nothing, other than the support of my family, friends, and strangers on the internet who all wanted to make sure that I was OK".

Myleene Klass said "A situation recognisable to so many of us".

Walsh said the kiss happened after they had had a couple of drinks. We made a huge mistake and I regret it deeply'.


"We spoke and I told him, not for the first time, that his actions over the past three weeks had led me to believe something inappropriate was going on". He aggressively, and repeatedly, called me a psycho / nuts / mental. "As he has done countless times throughout our relationship, when I've questioned his inappropriate, hurtful behaviour".

'Seann Walsh responds to @Beckshumps statement saying: "I feel it is important for me to say that the people that know and love me know I'm not the person I'm being portrayed as".

"I think it certainly does in Seann's case". It's more than lying, it's controlling.

"Tell some very close friends who, if they're anything like my wonderful network, will swoop in and take care of the logistics and of you".

She said, "Obviously I apologise and I can't apologise enough to everyone it hurt and was involved, but the main thing for me is me and Neil are absolutely fine and that's what matters to me the most right now".

"In light of the story in today's newspaper I would like to offer my honest apologies for my actions, ' Seann's statement read on Sunday, "This is no excuse but it was a one-off drunken mistake which I am truly sorry for.' Katya's reiterated the drunken mistake, stating that the 'one-off mistake after some drinks" was 'not a reflection" on her five-year marriage to fellow professional dancer Neil Jones- who has also previously appeared on Strictly Come Dancing. "I'm still sorry for what I did, but it's very important for me to get that out there". I made a mistake which I'm sorry for.

A list of songs and dances announced on Tuesday revealed Walsh and Jones are set to perform a Charleston on Saturday's show to Bills by LunchMoney Lewis.
