Strictly pair set for ‘sexed down’ dance


Daily Express - - SPECIAL REPORT ON DEVASTATION OF SEAS - By Mark Reynolds

STRICTLY Come Danc­ing’s Seann Walsh and Katya Jones will tonight per­form a “sexed down” ver­sion of the Charleston in the wake of their kiss­ing scan­dal.

Af­ter pub­licly apol­o­gis­ing for be­ing caught in a passionate embrace when both had part­ners, the pair will per­form a less racy rou­tine than had orig­i­nally been planned.

A BBC in­sider said: “The view was taken that for Katya and Seann to have any­thing provoca­tive in their rou­tine would be un­wise at best. “So it will be de­cid­edly ‘sexed down’.” De­spite the BBC play­ing down the scan­dal, Strictly judge Craig Revel Hor­wood said it will still be a fac­tor.

Straight-talk­ing Hor­wood told ITV’s Jonathan Ross: “My take was keep them in the show, make them do the ‘Dance of Shame’, if you like.

“It’s re­ally im­por­tant that, if this does hap­pen to you, you face up to it.”

Co­me­dian Walsh, 32, and his pro­fes­sional part­ner, 29, were caught kiss­ing on his girl­friend Re­becca Humphries’s birth­day.

Af­ter the pic­tures sur­faced Ms Humphries ended their re­la­tion­ship but Ms Jones’s hus­band Neil is stand­ing by her.

Come Danc­ing, BBC One, 6.40 tonight. Jonathan Ross, ITV, 9.50
