Former Strictly Come Dancing 2018 contestant Seann Walsh, 32, and Katya Jones, 29, passionately kissed during a night out together back in October, while they were both in relationships. At the time, the comedian was in a five-year relationship with actress Rebecca Humphries, while the Russian Beauty is married to co-star Neil Jones, 36.

Days after the kiss, Rebecca told her 29,000 followers Seann had repeatedly called her a “psycho countless times” when she questioned his behaviour in their relationship.
She tweeted: “It’s incredibly good of Seann and Katya to apologise in the media.
