Seann Walsh has said that the backlash over his kiss with co-star Katya Jones during the serious dance was the “catalyst” for him to change and “hold on to what I love”.
The 36-year-old comedian made national headlines in 2018 when he was photographed kissing his married dance partner while he was also in a relationship.
Walsh told him I’m a Celebrity… Get me out of here! campmate in Friday’s episode that he lived in “chaos” before joining the BBC dance show.
Loose Women host Charlene White asked him, “Did something happen 4 years ago that brought chaos into your life?”
“It was really the catalyst for ‘I have to change to try to hold on to what I love now,'” he said.
White said: “Stop the chaos and just live your life?”
Walsh replied, “Absolutely possible. And it’s a process, not just ‘I quit drinking so I’m fine now.’
“That’s when things got worse because now you suddenly have to deal with everything you’re trying to prevent.”
The celebrity was in a relationship with actress Rebecca Humphries at the time of the kiss.
Walsh entered the Australian jungle on Wednesday’s episode of the ITV reality show, alongside former health secretary Matt Hancock.
