Seann Walsh has opened up just as he found out his snogging with Strictly Come Dancing’s Katya Jones was public knowledge.
The 36-year-old comedian appeared on the popular BBC dance competition in 2018 when he became embroiled in the show’s biggest-ever scandal when he was caught on camera kissing his married professional partner.
Seann was also in a long-term relationship with actress Rebecca Humphries at the time and lived with her.
However, he has described how that moment made him the country’s “most hated comedian”.
Seann Walsh: Kiss | Full Comedy Special delves deep into what happened when two people’s kiss destroyed a marriage, a relationship, and his reputation.
During the comedy performance, Seann shared how his agent said he wanted to talk to him.
Seann said: “I left the cloakroom department and before I could order my first beer, my agent came up to me and asked if he could speak to me outside.
The comedian joked that he was expecting to learn he’d replaced Michael McIntyre on his TV show.
Instead, however, he was told that a picture of him kissing Katya outside a pub had been published online.
He continued: “He [his agent] said: ‘About 20 minutes ago The Sun posted a picture online of you kissing Katya outside a pub’.”
The comic was met with embarrassed laughter as he continued to show how devastated he was by the news, holding his head in his hands.
He added: “At that point, at that point, my life would turn upside down. The dream would turn into a nightmare.
“I’ve been called the most hated comedian in the country. Only I could get on with Strictly Come Dancing and get out of the most hated country in the country. What a damn shit!”
He had previously said on stage: “I was in a relationship, my dance partner Katya was married.
“We went out for drinks after practice, one thing led to another and we were photographed kissing outside a pub.
“Terrible, I know. It’s terrible – I’m sorry.
Seann kept the funny side of things going and revealed he knew he had “really screwed up” when he noticed Katie Hopkins defending him on Twitter.
He added: “Then Piers Morgan started defending me… I had really screwed up.
