The 38-year-old comedian was at the centre of controversy after he was pictured kissing his married dance partner Katya Jones when he appeared on the BBC show in 2018 and admits that he has never danced since and is even disturbed by 'Strictly No Parking' zones.

Seann - who was in a relationship with actress Rebecca Humphries at the time - told fellow comic Russell Howard on the 'Wonderbox' podcast: "I do not dance. What it is more actually is when you turn up to any car park or something, and it says, 'Strictly No Parking'. I still just go, 'Arghh', every time I see it.

"I can hear the word — like a dog hearing something — I can just hear the word strictly and I still go, 'Arghh!'"

Seann admits that he returned to performing comedy shows too soon after the scandal and said that he "looked unwell, thin and gaunt" during his performances, where he was regularly heckled by audience members.

He said: "I went back too soon — that's for sure. You've got to kind of let audiences, or the public, almost let them get over it. But I wanted to kind of fight it.

"I didn't want this thing that was happening to my life to take away the only thing that I had.

"I would have looked unwell. I was extremely thin and gaunt. It was so difficult. The audiences didn't know how to feel. They'd get up, they'd leave. Sometimes they'd tell me that they were appalled by me."

Seann previously declared his intention to move on from the scandal when he appeared on the ITV reality show 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' in 2022.

He said on the programme: "I just want to be clear in that I'm very sorry about what happened and I really want this to be a positive experience and it really has been. I want to come out of here and move forward."
