Strictly Come Dancing's Seann Walsh and Katya Jones will dance in this week's show despite the controversy surrounding their off screen relationship.

The actress is the girlfriend of shamed Strictly dancer and comedian Seann Walsh, who was captured on camera kissing his married dance partner, Katya Jones.

The pair have reportedly been told to tone down the sexiness of the routine amid the scandal, which saw Katya - who is married to Neil Jones - and Seann - who was dating Rebecca Humphries - caught sharing a passionate kiss last week.

Her comments come after pictures of the pair kissing on a night out were published by The Sun on Sunday - despite them both being in relationships at the time. I wasn't thinking and it was a one-off mistake after some drinks.

The pair later apologised for a "one-off drunken mistake", as the so-called "curse of Strictly" appeared to strike again.

Sean Walsh's ex-girlfriend has been supported by Scottish Women's Aid after she accused the comedian of being controlling.

She wrote: "It's incredibly good of Sean (n) and Katya to apologise in the media".

She concluded: "Despite everything, I hope he gets what he wants from this".

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

Stacey Solomon told her "What a powerful, important message". I think it certainly does in Sean's case.
