Strictly fans were left shocked as pictures emerged of Seann Walsh kissing dancing partner Katya Jones, during a night out.

And the comedians girlfriend of five years, Rebecca Humphries, has now broken her silence over their actions, hinting the couple have split.

Taking to Twitter, the actress claimed she has still not heard a thing from the 32-year-old, but has refused to be labelled as a victim in the situation.

Hello there, my name is Rebecca Humphries and I am not a victim, she began. I wasnt 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.

Its 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 for it to be on my own terms.

Addressing the photos in question, 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.

We spoke and I told him, not for the first time, that 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 done countless times throughout our relationship when Ive questioned his inappropriate, hurtful behaviour.

Rebecca went on to explain the ordeal has reminded her that she is a strong, capable person, and not a victim.

But – this whole business has served to remind me that I am a strong, capable person who is now free; and no victim, she said. I have a voice and will use it by saying this to any woman out there who deep down feels worthless and trapped with a man they love.

Believe in yourself and your instincts. Its more than lying. Its controlling. Tell some very close friend who, if theyre anything like my wonderful network, will swoop in and take care of the logistics and of you.

Its important also to recognise that in these situations those who hold power over you are insecure and fragile, and their need for control comes from a place of vulnerability. I think it certainly does in Seans case.

Her words come just after pictures and video were leaked, showing Seann and Katya sharing a passionate kiss in the middle of a deserted street, following a drunken night out.

Seann later shared a public apology on his own Twitter page, but failed to mention his girlfriend in the message.

In light of the story in todays newspaper I would like to offer my sincere apologies for my actions, he told his 107k followers.

This is no excuse but it was a one-off drunken mistake which I am truly sorry for.

While Katya, who is married to choreographer Neil Jones, also posted a similar apology on social media, branding what happened between herself and her BBC partner a one-off mistake.

She also vowed their kiss wasnt a reflection on her five-year marriage.

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, she added.

I love my husband and we are very happy together, this is not a reflection on our relationship.

Neil has yet to publicly speak out over the pictures – but has shared a naked photo of himself smouldering on a boulder on his Instagram page.


Because, why not?
