Getting along: The chemistry was clear to see on the al fresco lunch date between the pair, who have since apologised for their actions 

Later that day, they headed to a London bar and passionately kissed, despite Seann having a girlfriend of five years and Katya, 29, being married.

Moreover, the kiss took place on 32-year-old Seann’s girlfriend’s birthday as she wait for him at home, after telling him she was suspicious of his relationship with Katya.

‘They are always laughing and messing around, and are incredibly tactile with each other. It hasn’t gone unnoticed by cast and crew but no one expected this.’

It comes after Katya shared some rather choice words about Seann on her dog’s Instagram page. 

On her way: She appeared to have a real spring in her step as she led the way across the road – Rebecca has slammed both Seann and Katya as neither has apologised to her 

Sharing a picture of the comedian and her pet pooch, Crumble Jones she wrote: ‘I met my mummy’s new dance partner @seannwalsh yesterday! ‘He seemed very cuddly, so I approve!!! Now I’m thinking about growing my hair like his!’


Is it really that funny? Seann seemed to find the whole day rather funny, but maybe he did not know what was to come

That’s one way to impress the ladies: Seann appeared to be practising his dance moves at one point, perhaps that’s what he should have stayed focused on

But despite her indiscretions, it seems as though Neil has already forgiven his wife for the kiss. 

His sister Terri, has even tweeted her a message of support, saying: ‘We all love you and that’s all that matters xxx.’


Lucky for some: Despite her indiscretions, it seems as though Neil has already forgiven his wife for the kiss and his sister has even tweeted her support

Support: A legion of celebs were not afraid to display their thoughts on Rebecca’s statement

Hours before the wave of support, Rebecca spoke out for the first time after pictures emerged of her ex, 32, kissing Russian pro Katya, 29, who has been married to husband Neil for over five years.

The auburn-haired beauty made a bold statement as she dumped Seann over Twitter, revealing she had suspicions about her boyfriend cheating for at least three weeks.

Now, proven to be right the actress who says she is yet to received a first hand apology said she has left him and taken the cat and is ‘not sorry’ for doing so. 

Posting on Monday evening, Rebecca said she was not sure about whether to publicly respond – but felt she had to ‘clear up’ the narrative.    

‘Those pictures were taken on October 3rd. It was my birthday. I was alone at home when Seann texted at 10pm saying the two of them were going for one innocent drink’, she wrote in her lengthy message.

Rebecca continued: ‘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 had done countless times throughout our relationship when I’ve questioned his inappropriate, hurtful behaviour.’

Injecting her passage with reassurance, she insisted she’s a ‘strong, capable person’ who is now ‘free’ — and encourages other women to ‘believe in their instincts’. 

Married: Russian pro Katya, 29, tied the knot to fellow dancer Neil Jones in August 2013

Katya and Seann were reportedly at the Duke Of York pub in Marylebone in Central London at around midnight on Wednesday.

An onlooker who witnessed their kiss, told the Sun they were ‘snogging like a pair of teenagers’ and ‘didn’t seem to care who might see them’.

However, the pair both had haunted expressions on Monday morning as they emerged for the first time since pictures emerged of their drunken yet passionate kiss on a London street.

Sending his apologies on social media, Seann wrote on Twitter on Sunday: ‘I would like to offer my sincere apologies for my actions. This is no excuse but it was a one-off drunken mistake which I am truly sorry for.’ 

Katya also tweeted about the incident and said: ‘I’m so sorry about any offence or hurt I may have caused with my actions. I wasn’t thinking and it was a one-off mistake after some drinks. I love my husband and we are very happy together, this is not a reflection on our relationship’.
