It's barely been a day since Seann Walsh and Katya Jones got the boot from Strictly Come Dancing and already Seann's been tipped by bookies to be heading into the I'm A Celeb jungle.

Graeme and Oti performed their Cha Cha to Thriller by Michael Jackson and Seann and Katya performed their Viennese Waltz to I Put A Spell On You by Screamin' Jay Hawkins, in a bid to impress the judges and remain in the competition.

Craig's prediction appeared true as the dancing du faced Graeme Swann and Oti Mabuse in the Strictly dance-off where the judges unanimously voted Katya and Seann off the show.

Mock The Week star Walsh, 32, and Russian dance partner Jones, 29 - who is married to show choreographer Neil Jones - fell out of favour with the general public after they were pictured kissing on a London street.

Some fans claimed the pair had been deliberately kept in the show by the panel the following week, in a judging "fix", after they were saved from the 21 October Dance Off.

Walsh said "bar the last few weeks" it was the "best experience of my life".

Regardless of this choice, all will get a unique seat pattern with silver stitching that is repeated on the steering wheel. The GT Carbon Series will account for one of the seven GTs Ford will build each week going forward.

Rebecca shared a damning open letter about their rocky relationship after dumping him, and ever since viewers have been tuning in for the awkward scenes between Seann, Katya, and her husband Neil Jones, who is part of the Strictly dance troupe.

Despite the divisive indiscretion and media spotlight, Walsh has said being on the show was "the best experience of my life".

"You had to teach me how to walk, how to breathe..." he joked to Jones. Probably bar the last few weeks.

Katya tweeted: "Thank you so so much to everyone who had our support through out this journey!"

Seann then responded: "It's been a dream come true and that's because of you". Katya told Seann: "It wasn't easy but thank you for your commitment every single day", before adding: "Thanks for making me laugh a lot".
