STRICTLY Come Dancing’s Seann Walsh and Katya Jones have issued grovelling apologies calling their snog a “one-off, drunken mistake”.
The Sun On Sunday exclusively revealed the shocking pictures of the pair - who're both in relationships - locking lips on a street in London after a night out.
Katya, 29, was the first to hold her hands up and told her fans on Twitter: “I’m so sorry about any offence or hurt I 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.”
Seann, 32, followed suit and added: “In light of the story in today's newspaper I would like to offer my sincere apologies for my actions. This is no excuse but it was a one-off drunken mistake which I am truly sorry for.”
Following the show on Saturday night, an ashen looking Seann and stony-faced Katya were pictured leaving the BBC studios.
After the pictures of their steamy kiss were revealed, Seann's girlfriend heartbroken girlfriend Rebecca Humphries broke her silence after being comforted by pals.
Katya's husband Neil spoke out just hours after and was then pictured in London on his way to work at a dance studio.
An eyewitness who saw the kiss between Seann and Katya told The Sun On Sunday: “They were snogging like a pair of teenagers and didn’t seem to care who might see them.”
The pictures left many fans of the show shocked, but a TV insider told The Sun On Sunday: “Seann and Katya hit it off from day one.
“They are always laughing and messing around, and are incredibly tactile with each other.
“It hasn’t gone unnoticed by cast and crew but no one expected this.
“It’s going to cause real ructions backstage not least because Katya and Neil have to work alongside each other week in, week out.
