Seann Walsh ‘knew Strictly Kiss was bad when Katie Hopkins and Piers Morgan defended him’

Seann Walsh has revealed how his life changed drastically after kissing Katya Jones during her stint on Strictly Come Dancing, and how things have gotten worse now that other celebrities have jumped in

Seann Walsh said he knew kissing Katya Jones was wrong because Piers Morgan and Katie Hopkins defended him.

The prankster found himself at the center of Strictly Come Dancing’s biggest scandals after he was caught making out with his married dance partner.

In a show he uploaded to YouTube, Seann, 36, told the audience how his life was turned upside down after the kiss.

Looking at the funny side, he said that when he was backed by controversial characters, he knew he was in trouble.

During his Seann Walsh: Kiss | Full Comedy Special, he told viewers of the moment his career plummeted: “We went out for drinks and one thing led to another – and we were photographed kissing outside a pub. Terrible, I know I was sorry and I’m still sorry now.

“What followed was being at the center of a media storm and receiving thousands of offensive, personal online posts.”

He continued, “And I started to wonder, did I actually do anything that wrong? And then Katie Hopkins tweeted in my defense and I was like ‘I screwed up’.

“Then Piers Morgan started defending me and I was like, ‘I really screwed up,'” he said with an amused face.

He joked that he was on the front pages of the newspapers for 12 days, adding that he “hated” it.

The comedian, who cheated on longtime girlfriend Rebecca Humphries, was taken aside by his agent, who told him he had been photographed kissing Katya.

“I was at the point where my life would turn upside down – the dream turned into a nightmare,” he said.

“I was in a relationship, my dance partner Katya was married.”

After photos of him and Katya were leaked, Seann said he went into hiding and became increasingly paranoid about being tracked down.

“I was really paranoid that someone would see me and tell the press where I was because I was in a secret hotel,” he said.

When he got back to the exact filming location for the film, he was standing in Notting Hill and looking back on the moment he had a total breakdown.

He said: “I remember a blonde woman walking past me and she stopped me and I felt like she knew who I was and it suddenly freaked me out and I was like, ‘I have to go back, me going to have a big panic attack”.

“Notting Hill just started spinning and I was like, ‘I can’t fucking stand, I’m going to fall to the ground’.

Pointing to the side of the road, he said, “So I’m lying here now and I’m yelling, I look up and a double-decker bus is going by and the whole upper deck is doing it,” he said, before playing the unfazed passengers watching him as they walked by.

He laughed: “That was the damn London thing. If we were in the country, someone would have stopped and said, ‘There’s a guy in the street screaming’

He told how he was rescued by two good Samaritans who asked him if he wanted a ride back to his hotel.

The performer said he had to perform the Charleston “in front of about five million people” after the attack.

In addition to extensively discussing the kiss and the drama that unfolded, the comedian revealed how a daring stunt on the show made him wish “he’d fallen and died.”
