News: Seann Walsh Speaks About Strictly Scandal

Comedian Seann Walsh has spoken publicly for the first time in a BBC interview about being photographed kissing Strictly dancing partner Katya Jones.

Walsh and Jones were talking on BBC Two's It Takes – yes that is the name of the programme – in the run-up to their next appearance on Stricly on Saturday night. 

Walsh said: "I made a mistake, which I'm very sorry for - sorry for the hurt that I've caused."

He and Jones had previously apologised on Twitter. He said: "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. Our relationship wasn't perfect. That doesn't mean I wanted it to end the way it finally did, and I'm very sorry for that."

"I feel it's also important for me to say that the people that know me the most, that love me, they know that I am not the person I'm being portrayed as. I'm still sorry for what I did, but it's very important for me to get that out there."

Walsh said the kiss happened after they had had a couple of drinks. "We were getting on well, we were having fun," he said. 

Jones said: "I can't apologise enough to everyone who it hurt and involved. But, the main thing, me and Neil* are absolutely fine and that's what matters to me the most right now and focusing on my job and doing it as professionally I can."

Walsh and Jones are set to perform a Charleston on Saturday's show. 

When Strictly started Walsh rescheduled his autumn tour for next year. The tour is called – yes, that is the name of the tour – After This One, I’m Going Home. Tickets on sale now here.
