Katya’s Twitter joke has backfired with many Strictly fans.

Axed Strictly Come Dancing stars Katya Jones and Seann Walsh have cracked another bad-taste joke about their cheating scandal.

Pro dancer Katya appeared to laugh about their controversial partnership in a tweet to Seann after they were eliminated from the show.

The pair hit the headlines when they were caught drunkenly kissing outside a pub just a few weeks into the competition, on Seann’s girlfriend Rebecca Humphries’ birthday as she sat at home alone.

Fans of Strictly were also outraged for Katya’s husband Neil Jones, who is one of the show’s dance troupe, and they endured three weeks of awkward routines before the pair were voted out in the Halloween week episode.

Following their exit from the contest, Katya joked with comedian Seann by tweeting him: “Bet people can’t wait for your tour, you now have soooo much material for it!”

Strictly fans didn’t see the funny side, as one commented: “What a horrible tweet! Finding it amusing that he will be able to joke about what you both got up to. Posting it publicly for your husband, and his ex to see. Clear to see you have zero regrets and don’t care about them! Wow!”

Another added: “What? Making fun of ruining people’s lives?? His girlfriend, your lovely Neil? Why is that funny?”

Someone else fumed: “Katya do you really understand what you have posted? Have you no empathy? You choose to humiliate your husband by indulging in extra marital activity and then joke about that slimeball’s future material he can use?”

Seann had also angered viewers during the results show by seeming to laugh off the kiss, which led to him splitting from Rebecca.

He laughingly said: “This has been without a doubt the best experience of my life, probably bar the last few weeks.”

When news of the pair’s cheating on their partners broke, actress Rebecca tweeted an open letter detailing claims of Seann’s bad behaviour throughout their relationship.

Seann and Katya were voted out of Strictly during Halloween week for a wooden Viennese Waltz to Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ I Put a Spell on You that placed them joint bottom of the leaderboard with just 20 points.

They were beaten by Graeme Swann and Oti Mabuse in the dance off.

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday and Sunday evenings on BBC One.
