Seann Walsh Breaks Silence Over Strictly Kiss With Katya Jones

Seann Walsh has broken his silence on the cheating scandal, which saw him be dropped from the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas tour.

Comedian Seann made headlines after he was spotted smooching married dance partner Katya Jones, cheating on his then-girlfriend Rebecca Humphries.

Now, he's shared his own thoughts on the whole scandal while performing at London's Comedy Store on Monday night.

And according to The Sun, Seann showed 'no remorse' as he gave his side of the story.

Seann, who was met by boos from the studio audience at his gig, explained during his nine-minute set that his relationship with Rebecca was already "coming to an end".

"F*cking hell. I only agreed to do it [Strictly] to get out of watching it. For f*ck's sake," he said. "I will tell you this and we will stop talking about it. But look, I don't really need to explain myself but I will anyway."

The comedian continued: "I was coming towards the end of my relationship, I was getting on with this girl.

"You spend a lot of time with your dance partner on the show and we went for a drink and one thing led to the other. Most of you have seen the result.

"I actually started to think to myself, 'Hang on, have I actually done anything that wrong?'"

After photos emerged of Seann and Katya snogging in the street on a boozy night out - coincidentally the same day as Rebecca's birthday - his now ex-girlfriend publicly dumped him on Twitter in a defiant move.

Sharing a letter with her followers, Rebecca said she "was not a victim" and explained that she was yet to receive an apology from either Seann or Katya at the time.

She wrote: "It's incredibly good of Sean(n) and Katya to apologise in the media. I have received nothing, other than the support of my family, friends, and a host of strangers on the internet who all wanted to make sure I was OK.

"What I have also kindly received are many offers to sell my side of the story, but I would prefer for it to be on my own terms."
