Katya Jones and Seann Walsh will 'be kicked off Strictly Come Dancing' by lunchtime, claims BBC presenter

The pair were pictured snogging in a London street after a boozy night out on October 3, despite Katya being married to fellow Strictly pro Neil Jones and Seann, 32, being in a relationship with Rebecca Humphries.

Actress Rebecca sensationally announced she'd ended her relationship with Seann last night in a Twitter statement.

Nicky Campbell waded into the row on the BBC's 5 Live Breakfast this morning.

Discussing Rebecca's powerful statement in which she accused Sean of being "controlling" and "insecure", he said: "People are saying this is classic bit of gaslighting. Those are her allegations.

"It's difficult to Katya Jones and Seann Walsh. It's difficult for Strictly, given what he is alleged to have said.

"I wonder if they will make it by lunchtime. I wonder if a line will not be drawn."


Rebecca has moved out of the couple's London home — with TV judges believing he should be kicked off the show following the illicit kiss.

Sources close to the comic confirmed heartbroken Rebecca had left the flat they shared.

It came after Seann was pictured in The Sun on Sunday kissing telly dance partner Katya in a London street.

One source said: “Rebecca decided to move out over the weekend and they agreed it was best for both of them. She’s devastated by the situation and feels she needs time ap­art from him to clear her head.”

Seann was living with 32- year-old Rebec­ca in Hammersmith, West London. He yesterday returned to rehearsals with married Katya, 29, at the BBC1 show’s Elstree studio.

But his drunken snog with the Russian has caused fury backstage at Strictly, with show judges preferring them to be booted off.

Panellists Craig Revel Horwood, Bruno Tonioli, Shirley Ballas and Darcey Bussell, think it will be hard for the couple to continue.

The incident, on Rebecca’s birthday last Wednesday, has also divided Strictly’s professional dancers.

Karen Clifton, who cheated on husband Kevin last year, is said to be supporting Katya through the scandal.

But others feel for Katya’s husband Neil — also a dancer on the show.



A Strictly source said: “It’s caused a real divide in the camp. Neil is genuinely one of the nicest guys you’d meet and it’s embarrassing for everyone.

“The judges think it’s unfortunate and will be hard for them to continue.

“It’s a real shame as their dance on Saturday was brilliant — now the focus has shifted entirely.”

Seann and Katya issued social media apologies for their behaviour on Sunday, blaming the kiss on booze.

Rebecca broke her silence on Seann’s cheating, calling his behaviour “aggressive” and “controlling”.

And she slammed the comic for branding her a “psycho” when she questioned his relationship with married Katya.

Revealing he had not been in touch since the story broke, she tweeted: “I was alone at home when Sean texted at 10pm saying they were going for one innocent drink. I said his actions over the past three weeks had led me to believe something inappropriate was going on.

“He aggressively and repeatedly called me a psycho/nuts/mental. As he has countless times.”

She added: Despite everything, I hope he gets what he wants from this. I’m not sorry I took the cat though.”

A spokeswoman for Seann declined to comment.
