It's been a trying few weeks for Neil following his wife's well-publicised kiss scandal with her dance partner Seann Walsh. Since then Neil has defiantly stood by his wife, and has chosen not to speak out about it. Meanwhile, during a recent appearance on It Takes Two, Katya reassured viewers that the pair's relationship was "fine" following the incident. Seann, who has since split up from his girlfriend Rebecca Humphries, said: "I made a mistake, which I'm very sorry for - sorry for the hurt that I've caused," he explained. "You never think about the extent of the damage that you're going to do in a moment... I'm not perfect, far from it."
