Ruth, who competed on Strictly a year ago, said: "Having been in Strictly, I saw that and thought how awkward for everybody and how humiliating for their partners".

However, they stayed in the competition and 11.9 million viewers tuned in to watch them dance to Bills by Lunchmoney Lewis.

As the grubby images splashed across the British tabloids, both Walsh and Jones issued grovelling apologies. I was at alone at home when Sean texted me at 10pm saying the two of them were going for one innocent drink. Why am I not surprised Seann and Katya are still in.

Katya, who is married to fellow "Strictly" professional Neil Jones, also insisted her relationship was "absolutely fine".

The comedian and Jones are partners in the current series of Strictly Come Dancing.

"In light of the story in today's newspaper I would like to offer my honest apologies for my actions, ' Seann's statement read on Sunday, "This is no excuse but it was a one-off drunken mistake which I am truly sorry for.' Katya's reiterated the drunken mistake, stating that the 'one-off mistake after some drinks" was 'not a reflection" on her five-year marriage to fellow professional dancer Neil Jones- who has also previously appeared on Strictly Come Dancing.

Stacey Solomon of ITV's Loose Women called her a "hero", while singer Myleene Klass told her: "You took more than the cat with you, you took your pride, your dignity and your self-worth.' Ant McPartlin's estranged wife Lisa Armstrong also 'liked" a fan's message of support referring to both break-ups.

Michael Buble to 'retire' from music following son's battle with cancer
Michael Buble's management team says the crooner is not calling it quits despite a media report claiming otherwise. Michael Buble has surprised his fans by saying he's officially retiring from music in his "last interview".

The actress said the comedian's "actions over the last three weeks had led to believe something inappropriate was going on" but that he denied it, repeatedly calling her "psycho/nuts/mental".

Seann tweeted: "In light of the story in today's newspaper I would like to offer my honest apologies for my actions".

"I have a voice and will use it by saying this to any woman out there who deep down feels worthless and trapped with a man they love: Believe in yourself and your instincts".

"I think what's changed in our society is that we've been fed a lie, and that's that sex is important, and sex is the thing that has the most meaning".

"I'm glad Seann and Katya got through".

Their pre-dance VT made zero mention of the past week's events, though fans did notice the unusual addition of "Charleston coach", who appeared to have joined the pair for most of their rehearsals.

"I have taken a lot from this experience and it has all been really positive, and I'll never forget this journey".
