Bookmakers have made the comedian the hot favourite to be axed from the programme this weekend after pictures emerged of him and his professional partner Katya Jones sharing a smooch on a night out, despite him having a girlfriend and the dancer being married to fellow 'Strictly' pro Neil Jones.

Online bookie Betfair have priced Seann up at 6/4 to depart the programme after the upcoming weekend's performances, with doctor Ranj Singh the next likely to leave at 3/1.

Betfair Spokesperson Katie Baylis said: "It's been quite the weekend for Seann Walsh who went from hero to zero on the Strictly dancefloor with his stomping paso doble with partner Katya Jones.

"The judges loved the raw passion shown between them, which clearly spilled into the night after pictures of the pair snogging emerged the next day.

"Seann may face a backlash from viewers for his transgression as despite his comeback on the dancefloor is the 6/4 favourite to be eliminated this weekend."

However, some 'Strictly' fans have called for Seann - who has dated girlfriend Rebecca Humphries for five years - to be booted off the programme following his and Katya's kiss.

Katie added: "We also have it at 16/1 that he will just quit the show completely before the weekend."

But shrewd punters look likely to keep their money in their pocket, and the pair are expected to remain on the show and perform this weekend as planned.

Seann and Katya have both issued public apologies to their respective partners following their smooch.

She wrote on Twitter: "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. (sic)"

Seann tweeted: "In light of the story in today's newspaper 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. (sic)"
