Comedian Seann Walsh, 34, has been criticised by a domestic violence charity after filming a joke wrestling-inspired video with his girlfriend Grace Adderley. The choke-slam clip showed the former Strictly Come Dancing star grabbing Grace by the throat and throwing her onto a bed.

Grace uploaded the video to her Instagram page and captioned it: "Wrestlemania.”(sic)

Seann’s girlfriend could be seen laughing when she landed on the bed in the video, after he grabbed her and she pulled a worried face.

Grace’s followers recognised that the clip was filmed in jest, as they responded with laughing emojis in the comments section.

However, the couple’s antics sparked concern from domestic violence charity Solace Women's Aid.

The charity argued the video "normalised "and "glamourised” violence against women.

Shaista Aziz, a spokesperson for the charity, 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."

The video has now been removed from Grace’s Instagram account.
