Seann and Katya will do Strictly ‘dance of shame’

Western Mail - - NEWS -

SEANN Walsh and Katya Jones will be per­form­ing a “dance of shame” on tonight’s Strictly Come Danc­ing, judge Craig Revel Hor­wood has said.

The co­me­dian, who has been pub­licly dumped by his girl­friend, and his pro­fes­sional part­ner have both apol­o­gised af­ter they were pic­tured kiss­ing in the street.

They will be back in the spot­light on tonight’s show with a Charleston.

Straight-talk­ing Hor­wood told The Jonathan Ross Show: “My take was keep them in the show, make them do the dance of shame, if you like.”

The judge added: “It’s re­ally im­por­tant that, if this does hap­pen to you, you face up to it. You ei­ther, as they’ve done, apol­o­gise, which is ab­so­lutely fine. But get on with the job and show peo­ple what you’re made of and show peo­ple, ‘OK, this is what I did, I’ve been em­ployed to do this job, I’m go­ing to go on, do the job, get on with it and do it well and do it pro­fes­sion­ally’.”

And he added: “If you were at your Christ­mas party and you snogged the boss, for in­stance, you’d still have to do the walk of shame on the Mon­day, wouldn’t you?”

Hor­wood de­scribed the so-called Strictly curse, which has been blamed for many re­la­tion­ship breakups, “as a bless­ing, ac­tu­ally... when you think of the suc­cess sto­ries”.

But he said the Walsh and Jones kiss was “very dif­fer­ent be­cause one per­son is mar­ried, the other one had a girl­friend”.
