Strictly Come Dancing‘s Seann Walsh and Katya Jones have been making headlines ever since sharing a drunken kiss and cheating on their partners, and now they’ve drawn media attention once again after making another awkward TV appearance.
Having appeared to be uncomfortable the last time they were on Zoe Ball’s spin-off show It Takes Two, the pair were the complete opposite yesterday (October 17) as they returned to the show to share stories from their Charleston on Saturday night.
However, given their situation, some of their anecdotes came across as rather awkward, as they detailed intimate parts of the dance.
“[Seann’s] got a massive bruise and scratch on the back of him,” said Jones. “And then he hurt his knee as well. I was just not giving up!”
Jones then rather unfortunately described the grunting noises Walsh was making during the lift in their Charleston.
“When we got to the third one, he kinda got me up and all I could hear was [loud grunting],” she laughed while reenacting it. “I just thought, please do not let go!”
In the only reference to their kiss, Walsh said it had been “a big week” for them. “The support of everyone was lovely. There was a lot to it,” he added.
Viewers were quick to state on Twitter that they thought the pair were try extra hard to appear as if everything is normal.

S&K: "Do we still need to look a bit sad and forlorn about what happened?"
Producers: "No, back to your usual exhuberent selves."#ItTakesTwo

On 6 October, The Sun published photos of Walsh and Jones kissing in the street after a drunken night out. Comedian Walsh was subsequently dumped by Rebecca Humphries, his girlfriend of five years, after the Strictly pair issued grovelling apologies on Twitter.
In light of the story in today's newspaper I would like to offer my sincere apologies for my actions. This is no excuse but it was a one-off drunken mistake which I am truly sorry for.

I’m so sorry about any offence or hurt I may have caused with my actions. I wasn’t thinking and it was a one-off mistake after some drinks. I love my husband and we are very happy together, this is not a reflection on our relationship.
