The Strictly curse has struck once more as dance partners Seann Walsh and Katya Jones were spotted sharing a drunken kiss, which would have been grand and all except that Jones is married and Seann has a girlfriend.
The 32-year-old comedian and his 29-year-old professional dance partner have now apologised, releasing statements via Twitter:
Walsh, who is dating actress Rebecca Humphries, tweeted below:
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.

While Jones, who has been married to fellow Strictly dancer Neil Jones since 2013, 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.

Some are calling for the pair to leave the show following the scandal however:
Seann Walsh should walk out of respect for his relationship. And I’ll no longer call Katya Jones a pro because this behaviour was anything but professional! #StrictlyComeDancing #strictlycurse https://t.co/HTRjvRrmSe

The #Strictly curse has struck again! Seann Walsh and his dance partner Katya, who are both in relationships, have issued apologies after they were photographed kissing at the weekend. Do you think the pair should remain in the competition?#Lorraine
