Seann Walsh has laughed at the “overreaction” to his kiss with dance pro Katya Jones when they were together on Strictly Come Dancing.
The 36-year-old comedian has posted a trailer for his new show, which will be released on YouTube at the end of the month and is provocatively titled ‘Kiss’.
The comic posted a tweet with a video, which he captioned: “Remember when I went on that dance show? Seann Walsh • Kiss • March 27 • YouTube.”
In the video, Seann shares a series of derogatory criticisms and tweets directed at him since the infamous moment he locked his lips with Katya while they were both in long-term relationships.
Among the quotes he shared was a line from a GQ magazine review that read, “I want to spend the rest of my life without another thought about him and his wandering wand.”
He also shared a series of tweets with one reading, “Seann Walsh could possibly be the most unfunny t**t that ever lived.”
While another read: “Anyone who feels the need to stick an extra letter at the end of their name is usually a plank.”
The video then shows Seann on stage telling the audience, “Three years since Strictly Come Dancing. I think I can say it now. I think you overreacted.”
Seann performed at the BBC dance competition in 2018 but just a few weeks later a video and photos of him kissing Katya were released, sparking a media frenzy for a few weeks.
The comedian’s popularity quickly waned among viewers and he was voted off the show in week six, with many not forgiving the uproar his smooching with Katya caused.
Seann’s relationship with actress Rebecca Humphries ended in October 2018 and it was later reported that Katya and her husband, strict professional Neil Jones, had split as an indirect result of the clinch
While Katya appears to have moved on from the scandal, Seann admitted last year that it still haunts him, claiming it “shattered his dreams.”
The comedian has said his mental health is still being affected by the “kiss” and that he has full-body panic attacks.
speaking on the Take Flight PodcastSeann said, “I’ve wanted to be a comedian all my life and make my mark. You have to believe that you can do something special… and that was gone with the kiss.
“It was the first time I lived without hope.
“I felt like I had destroyed my dreams of who I was and why I got up during the day.
“And it’s still all I think about. what my life could have been. What I could have made of myself is gone. And what are you doing?
