Katya Jones And Seann Walsh Will Continue On ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ Following Kiss: ‘Nobody Is Pulling Out Of The Show’

Well this could all be a bit awkward.

Seann Walsh and Katya Jones will continue to perform together on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ after video footage of them kissing in the street surfaced over the weekend.

There had been speculation that Seann, whose girlfriend Rebecca Humphries was in Saturday night’s audience, and Katya, who is married to fellow ‘Strictly’ pro Neil Jones, would quit the BBC dance series as a result.

But show bosses have now confirmed they will continue in the competition in a statement read out on Monday’s ‘Loose Women’.

Presenter Ruth Langsford said: “This has just come through. Strictly has confirmed that Seann and Katya will be dancing together this weekend as planned. Nobody is pulling out of the show.”

The ‘Loose Women’ panel then discussed the incident, with Stacey Solomon defending the pair.

“I feel sorry for them,” she said. “People do do reckless, silly things when they’ve had alcohol, and we all make mistakes.”

“But would you say that if [Stacey’s boyfriend Joe Swash] came home?” Ruth asked.

“No,” Stacey admitted.

Although Seann’s girlfriend Rebecca Humphries is yet to offer any official comment, reports have suggested that they have both unfollowed each other on social media.

She has also been liking a number of tweets supporting her.

One post she liked criticised Seann’s public apology, which read: “Erm so where’s the apology to @Beckshumps? Oh and mate, you’ve massively messed up here. Monumentally. She’s a 10. You’re now in the bin.”

Meanwhile, Katya’s husband Neil seemingly ignored the furore as he posted a tribute to both his wife and Seann on Instagram.

Sharing a video of their Movie Week performance, he wrote on Instagram: ”I’m really proud of @mrs_katjones and @seannwalsh Paso Doble. Great shapes and of course like always the choreography was on point.”

Both Katya and Seann issued a statement after they were caught kissing, claiming it was a “one-off mistake”, with Katya insisting she was “very happy” with Neil.
