Strictly Scandal kiss – Rebecca Humphries brutally explains what it was like to have Seann Walsh as a boyfriend
Since news of the Strictly Scandal kiss broke, shock admissions have come to light about Katya Jones’ relationship with her husband and Seann’s less than charming behaviour revealed by his now ex Rebecca Humphries who ended their relationship just days ago after he was seen kissing his dance partner.
The dancing duo caused huge controversy last week as photos emerged of the pair kissing despite both being in long term relationships. Russian beauty Katya is married to dancer Neil Jones who she met back in 2008 and comedian Seann has been with long-term actress girlfriend Rebecca Humphries for 5 years.
32 year old Humphries issued a lengthy and seething statement on twitter to dump the star on Monday, yet Neil has remained silent.
Rebecca’s disclosures about life with Seann is sure to leave the comedian and Strictly contestant red faced.
Was the kiss a one off?
The dancing duo claimed that the kiss was a one off and happened after a night of drinking yet it has been reported that the Strictly stars enjoyed dates every night of the week.
Managers of a local pub where the pair used to drink have reported that they would come into the pub ‘every night’ and would stop to kiss each other while enjoying drinks and intimate chats – contrary to their insistence that their embrace was a one off. The bar manager said of the twosome:
‘Katya and Seann came in to the pub every night that week at about 9.30pm. They weren’t wearing work out gear when they came in and didn’t seem to be coming from the dance studio round the corner…’
‘They looked like a normal couple – really comfortable with other and they were quite tactile with each other at bar. No one knew who they were and they really kept themselves to themselves, choosing to sit outside…
‘Katya was drinking gin and tonics and Seann was being a gent bringing the drinks out. They were in deep conversation and seemed really into each other stopping to kiss a few times’.
The pair apologise publicly
Seann Walsh and his professional dance partner Katya Jones appeared on It Takes Two on Wednesday in their first television interview since pictures of the pair kissing emerged. The ashen faced pair both apologised unequivocally for what they had done and the hurt that had been caused.
Seann tried to justify their behaviour by saying “We were getting on well, we were having fun – we had a couple of drinks and made a huge mistake, and I regret it deeply.”
He then went on to say that he’s not the man that he’s ‘been portrayed to be.’ Many fans were not happy about his comment, with one writing about Seann on twitter “You’re being portrayed as a cheat because you are a cheat.”
During the interview Katya stated: ‘Obviously I apologise and 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 doing it as professionally as I can.”
Seann chimed in sheepishly by saying that he wished that it had never happened and that he was “sorry for the hurt” that he had caused.
Mixed reactions after the apology
Reactions on twitter have been mixed. One tweeter stated that ‘the public humiliation both couples have endured is out of proportion.’
Another claims that their apology was ‘insincere’ and that ‘Seann is a narcissist who made the whole interview about him + his public image rather than showing any remorse or consideration for those hurt proving Rebecca Humphries claims of emotional abuse to be credible.’
Strictly Judge Craig Revel Horwood is scathing of the pair
Speaking on the Jonathan Ross show, Judge Craig Revel Horwood says Seann and his professional partner Katya should do the “Dance of Shame,” on Saturday.
“My take was keep them in the show, make them do the Dance of Shame, if you like.”
“It’s really important, if this does happen to you, you face up to it.”
“You either, as they’ve done, apologise, which is absolutely fine.”
Delivering one final cutting remark, Craig added: “If you were at your Christmas party and you snogged the boss, for instance, you’d still have to do the walk of shame on the Monday, wouldn’t you?”
Katya Jones treats her husband like a dogsbody
The cheating Strictly star Katya husband accepts her wayward behaviour because she “treats him like a dogsbody” in their relationship, friends of the couple have claimed.
Friends say there is no chance of him leaving his sexy Russian wife after years of accepting her pushiness in what those close to them labelled an “odd relationship”.
One pal said: “She bosses him around and treats him like a dogsbody. She totally wears the trousers.
“It’s a very odd relationship. A lot of us feel quite sorry for him, but she’s called the shots for so long there’s no way he will break up with her.
“He thinks he has too much to lose by splitting up, but so many times we’ve been out together and he’s had to go home earlier because she won’t let him stay out without her.
“He’s put on a brave face but inside he will be dying over all of this.”
Life with slob Seann was “no fairy tale” says Rebecca Humphries
Seann’s former girlfriend Rebecca Humphries, 32, was hailed as a “female empowerment” hero, after she spectacularly dumped the shamed funny man in an epic takedown on Twitter.
In the tweet, she claimed that he called her “a psycho/nuts/mental. As he has done countless times throughout our relationship when I’ve questioned his inappropriate, hurtful behaviour.”
She went on to say that she is “no victim” and urged others in similar situations to ” Believe in yourself and your instincts.”
Life with slob Seann was “no fairy tale”
Life with Sean was not what Rebecca hoped it would be.
Speaking back in 2014 when the pair had been dating for just a year she said, “I’ve lived my life according to the Disney guidelines for years, and sort of expected things to be different.”
“For instance I’m still waiting on the castle with the handsome prince and talking animal friends rather than the flat in Shepherds Bush with the boyfriend who still spills baked beans down himself aged 28.”
The Big Bad World actress also admitted that she was unaware she was the subject of Seann’s comedy routine and was anxiously awaiting his Edinburgh Festival show.
She said: “I’m intrigued by Seann Walsh: 28. The blurb says ‘Seann is now living with his girlfriend, and she’s trying to sort him out’.
That girlfriend is me. A girlfriend who hadn’t known she would featuring in aforementioned show…”
Seann hits back
Responding to criticism, the comedian claimed that their five year relationship had not been “perfect” anyway.
Our relationship wasn’t perfect. That doesn’t mean I wanted it to end in the way the way that it finally did.
He added: “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’m not the person I’m being portrayed as.
“It’s very important for me to get that out there.”
