SEANN Walsh and Katya Jones have released statements after pictures circulated of the Strictly Come Dancing partners kissing.
In photos obtained by The Sun, Katya Jones and Seann Walsh were seen kissing each other outside of a London pub.
This is despite the fact that Strictly Come Dancing professional Katya, 29, is married to fellow dancer Neil Jones.
Comedian Seann, 32, is also dating long-term actress girlfriend Rebecca Humphries.
Katya has now taken to Twitter to released a statement over the drama.
“It was a one-off mistake”
She wrote: “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.”
Seann also released a statement, adding: “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.”
Seann and Katya earned praise from the judges last night after their Matrix-inspired Paso Doble dance.
Katya’s husband of four years Neil also praised the pair on Instagram today, despite the drama.
Posting a video of the performance, he told his 94,500 followers: “Wow last nights @bbcstrictly movie week was really epic and I’m really proud of @mrs_katjones and @seannwalsh Paso Doble.
“Great shapes and of course like always the choreography was on point. Which dance did you like last night?”
Meanwhile, Seann’s girlfriend Rebecca liked a supportive tweet from a pal on Twitter.
Her actress friend Kirsty-Leigh Porter, who formerly played Zoe Willson in Coronation Street, sent Rebecca a love heart emoji publicly on the social media site.
Another Twitter user replied to the tweet: “@seannwalsh you have some explaining to do! Poor girl,” followed by a heartbroken emoji.
Rebecca previously said on Instagram it was the “best day of my life” when Seann was announced for Strictly.
Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC One next Saturday.
