Susanna Reid has appeared to defend the kiss between Strictly Come Dancing couple Seann Walsh and Katya Jones, saying that "we've all had a few drinks and had a kiss". "We were getting on well, we were having fun", he said.

The 29-year-old professional dancer issued an apology earlier this week after pictures were published that showed her snogging dance partner Seann on a night out.

"We had a couple of drinks and made a huge mistake and I regret it deeply".

Seann and Katya Walsh apologised for their kiss on It Take Two.

The insider reportedly said: "She bosses him around and treats him like a dogsbody".

In the message to her fans the actress said on the affair: "It's incredibly good of Sean (n) and Katya to apologise in the media". "I don't think it's a curse it just happens".

But the pair have received backing from Morgan, who said he will make the effort to watch the programme because it will be "fantastically awkward" and that he "can't wait to watch them dance".

Seann Walsh's ex-girlfriend Rebecca Humphries has been inundated with support over the break-up. "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".

For comparison, astronauts at the orbiting International Space Station fly some 250 miles (400 km) above Earth. Virgin Galactic will get people into space using slightly different means than the likes of NASA and SpaceX .

And in a social media post she explained how she was "not a victim, ' and accused the stand-up of being 'controlling".

However, Seann has now taken the opportunity to tell his side of the story - claiming he hasn't been portrayed accurately and that his relationship with Rebecca "wasn't perfect".

After the snog made the front page of The Sun on Sunday, Walsh tweeted: 'In light of the story in today's newspaper I would like to offer my honest apologies for my actions. You never think about the extent of the damage that you're going to do.

"I'm not ideal, far from it".

"This is no excuse but it was a one-off drunken mistake which I am truly sorry for".

Humphries then goes on to urge any woman in a relationship who feels "worthless and trapped with a man they love: Believe in yourself and your instincts".

The dancing partners were praised for their dance routine on Saturday night's show, but as photos of the pair kissing were leaked by The Sun on Sunday, fans quickly changed their minds about the pair. Despite everything, I hope he gets what he wants from this.
