Strictly Come Dancing fans were rocked recently after Seann Walsh and married dance partner Katya Jones were spotted locking lips in between rehearsals.
The pair have since apologised and described the incident as a “one-off mistake” – but a star of the show has suggested they may not be the only ones who have shared a moment away from the cameras, giving his input on the Strictly Curse.
Teasing further off-screen romances, former professional dancer Gleb Savchenko told The Sun that there was “a lot of stuff that happens secretly” which viewers don’t know about.
“It’s obvious the dancers have feelings – it’s not necessarily that they want to go and f**k them, but a lot of people do,” he said.
“We’ve seen Seann and Katya making out outside a bar and if you asked me if I think any of the others are making out when no one is seeing it. It could well be happening.”
Teasing that professional dancers had an agreement amongst each other to keep romances in the dance studio private, Gleb added: “Whatever happens on Strictly stays on Strictly, let’s remember that”.
Gleb is now working alongside Bruno Tonioli on US show, Dancing With the Stars.
However, the star, who still keeps up with the UK professionals, claimed despite being caught sharing a snog, he saw no reason why Katya wouldn’t be able to work things out with husband Neil Jones.
“I feel like everyone is expecting Neil to go ‘Oh my god, my wife, she’s such a sl**’, no of course not.
“He’s going to support her and he’s going to be like ‘listen, yes she had a few drinks and she made a mistake but she admitted it – hopefully it’s not going to happen again.’”
Comparing the situation to issues he once faced in his own marriage, he said: “I also had problems in my relationship – me and my wife we were also kind of separated for a few months – I think four years ago and we made it work and you know actually it worked out pretty well.
“So I think they’re going to work it out and things happen – everyone is a human being..”
