Seann Walsh and Katya Jones appeared on Strictly Come Dancing spin-off It Takes Two on Wednesday evening, for their first interview since their kissing scandal.

Last week the pair, who were both in relationships at the time, were pictured kissing in the street, leading to Seann’s long-time girlfriend to end their relationship.

Rebecca Humphries announced their split in a scathing statement which Seann responded to during his chat with It Takes Two host Zoe Ball.

“I made a mistake which I am very sorry for. You never think about the extent of the damage you’re going to do in the moment of the mistake you’ve made.”

Alluding to his ex, he continued: “I’m not perfect, far from it, our relationship wasn’t perfect, this doesn’t mean I wanted it to end the way that it finally did.”

Seann added: “I think it’s also important for me to say that the people that know me the most, the people that love me, know that I am not the person I’m being portrayed as.

“It’s very important for me to get that out there.”

Taking to Twitter earlier this week, Rebecca told her social media followers: “It’s incredibly good of Seann and Katya to apologise in the media. I have received nothing, other than the support of my family, friends, and a host of strangers on the internet who all wanted to make sure I was OK.

“What I have also kindly received are many offers to sell my side of the story, but I would prefer for it to be on my own terms. I was alone at home when Seann texted at 10pm saying the two of them were going for one innocent drink.

“We spoke and I told him, not for the first time, that his actions over the past three weeks had led me to believe something inappropriate was going on.”

She ended her statement with: “I hope he gets what he wants from this. I’m not sorry I took the cat.”

Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday on BBC One, while It Takes Two airs weeknights at 6.30pm on BBC Two.
