Seann Walsh has been slammed by a domestic abuse charity after his girlfriend shared a clip to Instagram of him choke-slamming her.

The Strictly star and comedian, 34, can be seen grabbing Grace Adderley's throat and throwing her onto a bed before looking into the camera. 

Grace, 25, captioned the video 'wrestlemania' and is seen laughing as she stands back up, however Solace Women's Aid has described the clip as 'disturbing'.

Charity spokesperson Shaista Aziz told The Sun: 'Glamorising choking women and grabbing women by the throat is starting to become more prevalent in imagery posted on Instagram and social media and by high-profile people.

'Violence and violence against women and girls should never be normalised in any form – it is disturbing to see these images.'

In the video, which has audio commentary as if from a wresting match, Seann is seen shirtless as he puts one hand on Grace's neck and another under her arm.

He then launches her onto the bed, with the brunette giggling straight away at the action and while she's getting back on her feet.
