Seann Walsh has called his kiss with Katya Jones a one-off drunken mistake in a grovelling Twitter apology.

The comedian sincerely apologised for pictures that showed him smooching with his Strictly Come Dancing partner like a pair of teenagers after a boozy night out on Wednesday.

Katya has already apologised to her husband, fellow professional Neil Jones, while Seanns girlfriend Rebecca Humphries has been hinting at her heartbreak on Twitter.

Seann wrote: In light of the story in todays 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.

Katya also called the incident a one-off in her statement, writing: Im so sorry about any offence or hurt I may have caused with my actions.

I wasnt 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.

In video footage and images from the night, Seann can be seen holding Katyas head as they passionately kiss, with Katya seen giving Seann a sultry dance as he snaps pictures on his phone.

Witnesses said they were snogging like teenagers and didnt seem to care who saw them.

Afterwards, Seanns girlfriend appeared to unfollow him on Instagram and went on a liking spree for sympathetic tweets.

Some of the supportive messages called Seanns behaviour cruel and heartbreaking, while others suggested he was in the bin as far as his relationship with Rebecca was concerned.

Rebecca had been consistently supportive through Seanns Strictly beginnings, even gifting him a Keep Calm and Listen to Katya T-shirt, and regularly sitting in the audience.

Katyas scorned husband, meanwhile, chose to ignore the dalliance and instead reiterated his support for the Strictly pairing as he broke his social media silence on Sunday.

He wrote: Wow last nights movie week was really epic and Im really proud of @mrs_katjones and @seannwalsh Paso Doble. Great shapes and of course like always the choreography was on point.
