Seann Walsh will have some explaining to do when he sees Neil Jones at Strictly rehearsals on Wednesday.

Neil is reportedly planning to confront the axed contestant (who kissed his wife Katya Jones earlier this year) after the comedian made derogatory comments about him at a stand-up gig last week.

Funny man Seann is understood to have called Neil a gay man in jokes making light of his kiss with Strictly professional Katya, and its left Neil fuming.

A source told The Sun on Monday: Neil has been telling pals backstage he will confront him and ask him to explain himself.

A representative for Neil Jones has been contacted by Metro.co.uk for comment.

Neil and Seann will come face-to-face at this Wednesdays group rehearsals for BBC Ones grand final episode, held on Saturday.

And no doubt Seann will find it difficult to explain his unnecessary comments from a gig he put on at The Tommyfield in Kennington, South London last week.

According to the newspaper, Seann introduced himself as the guy who kissed a gay mans wife before trying to laugh it off by saying, Im only joking.

Before that, he was reportedly booed at Londons Comedy Store the previous week when he admitted that he asked himself whether hed actually done anything wrong during the kissing scandal.

Seann, who was in a five-year relationship at the time, was pictured kissing his married dance partner Katya at a London pub three weeks into the BBC dancing competition.

While Seann was swiftly dumped for the infidelity, married dancers Katya and Neil have recovered from the drama and have just announced a new show together for 2019.
