the pros in a dif­fer­ent mood. Every­one gets on with Neil. I’m sure he doesn’t re­spect Seann at all right now.”

Neil had ad­dressed the Strictly curse be­fore the snog storm. In pre­vi­ously un­pub­lished com­ments, he said: “I don’t worry about that.

“We are happy so it is all safe there. I don’t be­lieve in the Strictly curse.

“If some­one is go­ing to come on to the show and they want to end up with some­body it is go­ing to hap­pen no mat­ter what. If they are happy in their own re­la­tion­ship it won’t hap­pen.

“I don’t think there is some power there where all of a sud­den they walk in and they are re­ally happy and they start danc­ing and they go ‘all of a sud­den this has changed my life now, I’m go­ing to run off with her’. I don’t think it hap­pens.”

Seann and Katya pub­licly apol­o­gised for their kiss out­side a West Lon­don pub. While he was quickly FOR­MER Strictly pro­fes­sional dancer Kristina Ri­hanoff doesn’t be­lieve Seann Walsh and Katya Jones should have gone on TV to apol­o­gise for their kiss.

The pair ap­peared on BBC Two’s spin-off show It Takes Two on ditched by ac­tor Re­becca, Katya said her five-year mar­riage to Neil was “ab­so­lutely fine”.

Re­becca went pub­lic and re­vealed she had sus­pected some­thing was go­ing on be­tween Seann and Katya.

But she said the comic had branded her “nuts” and “psy­cho” when she chal­lenged him.

Re­becca’s mum was left in tears by the furore and said she was “thrilled” her daugh­ter had fi­nally ditched Wed­nes­day to ad­dress the me­dia storm over their smooch.

But Kristina, 41, told BBC Break­fast be­fore their hotly an­tic­i­pated dance last night: “They have to be pro­fes­sional. They are per­form­ers at the end of the day, Seann. A source added: “It’s been a re­ally aw­ful time for Re­becca and her fam­ily. They are glad she is rid of Seann so she can move on with her life.”

Seann hit back at his ex-girl­friend’s al­le­ga­tions of ag­gres­sive be­hav­iour, telling fans: “I’m not the per­son I’m be­ing por­trayed as.”

He ad­mit­ted he is “not per­fect”, but said his long-term re­la­tion­ship had not been ei­ther. and they have to put all of this aside, and let’s face it, there are much more dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tions.

“So yes, it’s been a ter­ri­ble week, but they have to get them­selves to­gether, and I don’t think it was the right pro­gramme to say sorry. The show is about danc­ing, not about pri­vate lives. They apol­o­gised on so­cial me­dia and I’m sure in pri­vate to all the part­ners in­volved, so I can’t re­ally un­der­stand why the sub­ject was brought up on It Takes Two.” Score 27 Score 33 Score 26 18 Score 25 Score 29 Score 20 Score 26 Score 3 Score 28 Score 25

Just close your mouth Graziano.A pass­able paso from Dr Ranj and Janette.
