Strictly's Seann Walsh has said his kiss with dancer Katya Jones was a 'huge mistake' but turned on his ex-girlfriend Rebecca Humphries after she dumped him on Twitter.

Walsh and Jones, who have been at the centre of a week-long scandal after they were caught sharing a passionate kiss last week, appeared together on BBC's It Takes Two programme tonight.

Speaking on the BBC programme tonight Walsh said he was 'not the person I'm being portrayed as' by his ex-girlfriend who ended their relationship in a lengthy statement online, saying he had called her 'psycho' when she suspected him of cheating. 

Earlier on Wednesday the duo were seen rehearsing their Charleston in pictures shared by the Strictly Come Dancing Instagram feed. 

The pair have reportedly been told to tone down the sexiness of their routine amid the scandal, which saw Katya - who is married to Neil Jones - and Seann - who was dating Humphries - sharing a kiss.

He said: 'I think that, obviously I'm sorry for the hurt that I've caused.

'We were getting on well, we were having fun. We had a couple of drinks and made a huge mistake and I regret it deeply.'

Responding to his ex-girlfriend Rebecca Humphries' remarks on Twitter, he said: 'I made a mistake, which I'm very sorry for - sorry for the hurt that I've caused. 

'You never think about the extent of the damage that you're going to do, in a moment of, you know the mistake that you've made. 

'I'm not perfect, far from it. Our relationship wasn't perfect. That doesn't mean I wanted it to end the way it finally did, and I'm very sorry for that.

'I feel it's also important for me to say that the people that know me the most, that love me, they know that I am not the person I'm being portrayed as. I'm still sorry for what I did, but it's very important for me to get that out there.'

Katya Jones said: 'Obviously I apologise, and I can't apologise enough to everyone who it hurt and involved. 

'But, the main thing, me and Neil are absolutely fine and that's what matters to me the most right now and focusing on my job and doing it as professionally I can.'

In a lengthy statement shared across social media on Monday evening Humphries confirmed she has ended their five-year relationship following the emergence of the damning pictures - despite Walsh and Jones both issuing public apologies.

She said: 'Those pictures were taken on October 3rd. It was my birthday. I was alone at home when Sean 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. 

'He aggressively, and repeatedly, called me a psycho/nuts/mental. As he has done countless times throughout our relationship when I’ve questioned his inappropriate, hurtful behaviour. 

'But – this whole business has served to remind me that I am a strong, capable person who is now free; and no victim. 

'I have a voice and will use it by saying this to any woman out there who deep down feels worthless and trapped with a man they love: Believe in yourself and your instincts.

'It’s more than lying. It’s controlling. Tell some very close friends who, if they’re anything like my wonderful network, will swoop in and take care of the logistics and of you.'

In the footage of the pair's latest rehearsals released earlier, comedian Seann appeared exhausted as he performed a series of dance moves, before crashing on the studio floor. 

Russian pro Katya, 29, kept casual as she sported a baggy dipped hem top, tied in with a pair of grey joggers and box-fresh trainers.

Meanwhile, the Mock the Week star opted for comfort in loose-fitting bottoms and a grey running top by Nike. 

Despite being in the midst of a media storm following their steamy kiss - which saw Seann dumped by his girlfriend Rebecca, 32 - the dance partners still managed to crack smiles as they practiced their routine.

The duo are now bookies' favourites at 6/4 to face the axe from Strictly Come Dancing on Sunday evening, as the fallout from their drunken kiss continues.

The pair will perform the Charleston to Lunchmoney Lewis hit Bills on Saturday, but bookmakers expect them to be eliminated during Sunday's results show after falling out of favour with the general public.  

Walsh and Jones have suffered an enormous backlash after pictures emerged of them locked in a passionate embrace following a night out at a London pub.

The incident provoked further condemnation for comedian Walsh after it emerged that the incident took place on his girlfriend Rebecca’s birthday, October 3, while she sat alone in their shared flat.

According to the Mirror, Strictly Come Dancing bosses have reportedly re-choreographed the dance shamed couple Seann and Katya were set to perform on Saturday night's show to make it less sexy after the couple were pictured passionately kissing.

The pair were previously set to perform a rumba, salsa, or Argentine tango - three of the most passionate dances in the Strictly catalogue.

But they will now perform something where Seann looks sombre and Katya is wearing something that isn't revealing.
