Strictly Come Dancing: Seann and Katya return to dancefloor

They have both apologised and will be back in the spotlight on Saturday's show when they will dance a Charleston.

Strictly Come Dancing's most prominent figures continue to take sides on the biggest controversy the dancing show has seen yet: the unfaithful kiss between Seann Walsh and his married dance partner Katya Jones.

Comedian Walsh and Jones appeared on the BBC Two programme on Wednesday to address the kiss, which had resulted in Walsh being publicly dumped by his partner Rebecca Humphries, and which also prompted speculation around Jones's marriage with Strictly dancer Neil Jones.

The dance earned scores 6, 7, 8, 7 respectively, giving them a total of 28.

The judges were largely impressed, with Dame Darcey Bussell commenting: "That was a full routine, you delivered a great energy, strong vibrant character, there were some really tricky lifts in there, I enjoyed one of the first ones where you took one arm and one leg where you swung her around".

"For the last seven days, our couples have been eating, sleeping and breathing dance", began Daly.

"But get on with the job and show people what you're made of and show people "OK, this is what I did, I've been employed to do this job, I'm going to go on, do the job, get on with it and do it well and do it professionally".


Winkleman chipped in: "Apart from that, it's been a quiet week".

A third added: "Katya's husband clearly elated in the background". "After the week these two have had it will be hard to focus and we think their dancing will inevitably suffer".

Their training footage mentioned nothing of the week's headlines but it did make a point of them having a Charleston coach (chaperone) in the rehearsal room.

The judges praised the dance as the pair stood next to Tess, unsure where to put each others hands.

"Speaking ahead of tonight's live show, Craig said: "[Tonight] will be tough for Seann and Katya, and Neil.

But head judge Shirley Ballas said she hopes viewers "judge the dancing and not the relationship".

Shirley Ballas added: "That choreography and routine was outstanding. We already know he's a b***end and I noticed that he isn't standing close to Katya and her husband for some reason".
