Seann Walsh reportedly won’t be taking part in the Strictly Come Dancing tour, but it appears he’s still contractually obliged to pitch up for the annual past contestants dance for this weekend’s final.

But he’s noticeably distant from pro-dancer Neil Jones in this snap from the practice sessions, posted by radio DJ Vick Hope from the show’s home at Elstree Studios.

Tabloid rumours spoke of potential confrontation between Jones and Walsh, after the stand-up reportedly mocked him during a recent set.

Walsh was resident in the red tops for weeks after he was snapped by paparazzi kissing his pro-dance partner Katya, who also happens to be Neil Jones’s wife.

According to The Sun, Walsh joked in front of an audience in Kennington, South London: “Before the show, the newspapers were complaining they didn’t know who I was.

“You know who I am now, motherf***ers. I’m the guy who kissed a gay man’s wife.”

He quickly added: “Please don’t report that. I’m only joking. I’m just here trying to make you laugh.”

Also in the snap is Danny John-Jules reunited with partner Amy Dowden.

The Red Dwarf star was also the subject of headlines claiming that he had bullied Dowden, accusations both parties denied.

It was also said that he had ‘lashed out’ at show judges at the after-show party following his exit from the show.

Hopefully this is all behind them now, with the former hopefuls performing for the last time this series.

The final, in which Joe Sugg, Stacey Dooley, Faye Tozer and Ashley Roberts will battle it out for the Glitterball Trophy, happens this weekend.
