Seann Walsh favourite to leave Strictly Come Dancing following 'drunken' kiss with married Katya Jones

Monday 8th October 2018

Seann Walsh and Katya Jones are the favourites to get the boot from Strictly Come Dancing following their "drunken" kiss.

Walsh is odds-on at 1/2 with Coral to be the third celebrity to be eliminated from the BBC Once dancing show after being caught locking lips with his married dance partner.

The pair, who were recorded on camera "snogging like a pair of teenagers", have since apologised publicly after being caught out.

The video, which appeared in the Sun newspaper, showed the pair kissing outside a London pub during a night out.

Jones, 29, has been married to fellow Strictly dancer Neil Jones since 2013. She said in a tweet the kiss was “not a reflection” of her relationship.

She said: “I’m so sorry about any offence or hurt I may have caused with my actions.

“I wasn’t thinking and it was a one-off mistake after some drinks.

“I love my husband and we are very happy together, this is not a reflection on our relationship.”

Walsh, 32, who is in a relationship with actress Rebecca Humphries, apologised separately in tweet to his followers, calling it a “one off drunken mistake”.

He said: “In light of the story in today's newspaper I would like to offer my sincere apologies for my actions.

“This is no excuse but it was a one-off drunken mistake which I am truly sorry for.”

Despite criticism for their actions, they are expected to continue as dancing partners.

Elsewhere, Faye Tozer and Stacey Dooley are the joint favourites to lift the Glitterball trophy now, at 4/1 with the bookmakers.

Strictly Come Dancing continues this weekend on BBC One.
