The actress took to Twitter to like a number of tweets from people who watched him admit he was "very sorry" for the "hurt" he has caused after he and his 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner were pictured kissing last week, despite him being in a relationship with Rebecca at the time, and Katya being married to fellow pro dancer Neil Jones.

Rebecca - who has since dumped Seann following the incident - showed her affection for several messages on Twitter which hit out at the comedian for not name-checking her during his latest apology, which came on last night's (10.10.18) 'Strictly: It Takes Two'.

One of the tweets she liked read: "he could have at least mentioned @beckshumps name instead of skirting around the fact he hasn't apologised to her, just for the 'hurt he has caused'.

also the way he says 'the people who know me most.. and love me..'?? um are you suggesting she never loved you @seannwalsh?? ugh (sic)"

Another read: "He *still* didn't actually say sorry or give any reference to @Beckshumps #sorrynotsorry (sic)"

One read: "I feel so desperately frustrated & sad for @Beckshumps having just watched the 'apology' that @seannwalsh gave. NO relationship is perfect, it takes kindness, consideration, communication &understanding. But most of all please have the decency to SAY her name? Apologise to her! (sic)"

During the episode, Seann admitted his and Rebecca's five-year relationship "wasn't perfect", but he didn't want it to end in such a way.

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."

His comments come after Rebecca wrote a statement earlier this week claiming Seann had called her "a psycho" and "mental" for suggesting "something inappropriate was going on" between him and Katya.

She wrote: "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. (sic)"

Katya has insisted her marriage to Neil is "absolutely fine".

Speaking last night, she 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."
