We've all been gripped this week by the latest 'curse' that seems to follow contestants on Strictly Come Dancing, as comedian Seann Walsh was spotted kissing his married dance partner Katya Jones and not caring who saw. Since the pair sobered up, and saw the backlash they were getting, both Seann and Katya have apologised. Now they've appeared on Strictly's sister show Strictly: It Takes Two to talk about THAT KISS and say sorry to the nation.

Seann was up first and said, "Obviously I'm sorry for the hurt that I've caused, we were getting on well, we were having fun, we had a couple of drinks and I regret it deeply."

Katya then gave her thoughts and revealed how things were with her husband who works with her on the show. She said, "Obviously I apologise and I can't apologise enough to everyone it hurt and was involved, but the main thing for me is 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 as I can."

Earlier in the week Rebecca Humphries, ex-girlfriend of Strictly Come Dancing star Seann Walsh, broke her silence after her partner was spotted kissing married dance partner Katya Jones. Host Zoe Ball then asked if there was anything Seann would like to say about that.

Seann replied, "I think first of all, I would rather not have to be addressing this publicly, I made a mistake which I'm very sorry for, I'm sorry for the hurt that I've caused, you never think of the extent of the damage you're going to do in the moment of the mistake that you've amde. I'm not perfect, far from it, our relationship wasn't perfect but that doesn't mean I wanted it to end the way it did."

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

Seann was forced to apologise earlier in the week but failed to mention his girlfriend Rebecca Humphries, who later released a statement about her relationship and split with the comedian.

Rebecca wrote: "Hello there. My name is Rebecca Humphries and I am not a victim.

"I wasn't sure whether to respond to events from the past week, but I feel the narrative has missed a couple of crucial elements that I would like to clear up.

"It's incredibly good of Sean(n) and Katya to apologise in the media. I have received nothing, other than the support of my family, friends and a host of strangers on the internet who all wanted to make sure I was OK. What I have also kindly received are many offers to sell my side of the story, but I would prefer to be on my own terms."

She continued: "Those pictures were taken on October 3rd. It was my birthday. I was alone at home when Sean texted at 10pm saying the two of them were going for one innocent drink."

Rebecca went on to explain that Seann 'aggressively, and repeatedly called me a psycho/nuts/mental,' before admitting she 'took the cat.'

Following on from Katya's public Twitter apology where she 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", her husband Neil simply posted a mostly naked selfie and ignored the drama.

Both Katya and Sean WILL dance this weekend on Strictly Come Dancing, but will their apologies (and dancing) be enough to win over the public?
