The dancing partners were praised for their dance routine on Saturday night's show, but as photos of the pair kissing were leaked by The Sun on Sunday, fans quickly changed their minds about the pair.

However, Strictly's Seann was in a five-year relationship with actress Rebecca Humphries at the time, while Katya is married to Strictly professional Neil Jones.

"I was alone at home when Sean texted at 10pm saying the two of them were going for one innocent drink".

"And focusing on my job and doing it as professionally I can".

After the pictures were published she said they were in a "very happy" relationship and that the incident was not a reflection on their relationship.

She concluded: "But - this whole business has served to remind me that I am a strong, capable person who is now free; and no victim".

The Strictly Come Dancing duo shared a passionate kiss during a drunken night out. I don't think it will ever be boring with Neil.

Seann has apologised for hurting Rebecca, but he has also defended his own reputation, insisting he's been portrayed unfairly over recent days.

Responding to his now ex-girlfriend's statement, Seann said: "I'd rather not be addressing this publicly but I feel as though I have to".

He said that Jones's husband, dancer Neil Jones, appears to have "accepted what happened as a mistake" and that Walsh "wasn't married".

You never think about the extent of the damage that you're going to do in a moment of. you know, the mistake that you've made. I'm not perfect.far from it.

"I'm still sorry for what I did, but it's very important for me to get that out there".

"We had a couple of drinks and made a huge mistake and I regret it deeply".

However, Seann has now taken the opportunity to tell his side of the story - claiming he hasn't been portrayed accurately and that his relationship with Rebecca "wasn't perfect".

"I have a voice and will use it by saying this to any woman out there who deep down feels worthless and trapped with a man they love: Believe in yourself and your instincts. That doesn't mean I wanted it to end the way it finally did, and I'm very sorry for that".

Speculation has mounted that the pair may quit the series before Saturday night's episode, amid rumours the programme's bosses want them to leave.
