Seann: I’m just a hate fig­ure now

Sunday Express - - FRONT PAGE - By Ed Gleave

SEANN Walsh and Katya Jones were re­united for a fi­nal dance as they ap­peared on last night’s Strictly live fi­nal show as he ad­mit­ted he was one of Bri­tain’s most hated men.

The co­me­dian re­turned to the tal­ent show to join 11 other elim­i­nated celebrity con­tes­tants for a group dance set to Wake Me Up Be­fore You Go-Go by Wham! – which then turns into a med­ley.

He was re­united with mar­ried pro­fes­sional dancer Katya and re-en­acted their slow mo­tion dance based on the Ma­trix but kept a low pro­file dur­ing the line up. The pair were hid­den from view and not in­ter­viewed by the hosts. Speak­ing be­fore the show he ad­mit­ted he had “for­got­ten every­thing” but ad­mit­ted Strictly has made him a hate fig­ure.

The TV star has branded him­self “the most hated comic in Bri­tain”. Asked if his state­ment was ac­cu­rate, he added: “It cer­tainly feels like it.”

Dur­ing his stint on the dance con­test he suf­fered a back­lash over his “kiss­gate” scan­dal with Katya which he dis­missed as “a one-off, drunken mis­take.” He was caught snog­ging dance part­ner Katya on a boozy night out.

It later emerged it hap­pened while his girl­friend Re­becca Humphries cel­e­brated her birth­day at home alone.

Just days later Seann was given the boot from Strictly as view­ers turned against him.

At a re­cent gig he poked fun at his in­fi­delity and branded Katya’s hubby Neil “gay”.

He’s now ad­mit­ted he will con­tinue to cash in on the scan­dal.

The 33-year-old added: “I’m on tour at the mo­ment and I will be talk­ing about my Strictly ex­pe­ri­ence.”
