The comedian - who has been dating girlfriend Rebecca Humphries for five years - and his 'Strictly Come Dancing' professional partner, who is married to fellow pro dancer Neil Jones, were recently pictured embracing on a night out, but they have now issued public apologies to their respective partners.

Katya 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)"

The 'Bad Move' star's girlfriend Rebecca - who was in the audience on Saturday night (06.10.18) to watch Seann and Katya perform a paso doble - reached out to author Marian Keyes after the novelist tweeted about his "poor girlfriend".

Rebecca wrote: "Wanna be friends?"

Marian replied: "Of COURSE. I'm so upset for you, I've been thinking about you all day xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (sic)"

Neil - who also works on 'Strictly' - shared a video of Seann and Katya's 'Strictly' performance over the weekend, and admitted he was "really proud" of the pair's routine.

He wrote: "Wow last nights @bbcstrictly movie week was really epic and I'm really proud of @mrs_katjones and @seannwalsh Paso Doble. Great shapes and of course like always the choreography was on point. . (sic)"

Pictures of the pair embracing were revealed in The Sun on Sunday newspaper, and a witness told the publication: "They were snogging like a pair of teenagers and didn't seem to care who might see them."
