Strictly Come Dancing’s Seann Walsh has been dumped by Rebecca Humphries in a furious post following his kiss with Katya Jones.
The comedian and married dance professional Katya left fans of the BBC dance competition gobsmacked as they were pictured sharing a passionate kiss on Wednesday night, after going for drinks in London – later taking to social media to apologise for their actions.
Now, Seann’s actress girlfriend Rebecca has dumped him in a lengthy post, where she also brands him “controlling” and shockingly claims she had her suspicions about his relationship with Katya for a while.

Sharing the post with her 4,877 Twitter followers, Rebecca wrote: “Hello there, My name is Rebecca Humphries and I am not a victim. I wasn’t sure whether to respond to events from the past week, but I feel the narrative has missed a couple of crucial elements that I would like to clear up.
“It’s incredibly good of Sean(n) and Katya to apologise in the media. I have recieved nothing, other than the support of my family, friends, and a host of strangers on the internet who all wanted to make sure I was OK.
“What I have also kindly recieved are many offers to sell my side of the story, but I would prefer for it to be on my own terms.”
Detailing the pictures, and the eye witness accounts which claimed Seann and Katya were “snogging like teenagers,” Rebecca added: “Those pictures were taken on October 3rd. It was my birthday.
“I was alone at home when Sean texted at 10pm saying the two of them were going for one innocent drink. We spoke and I told him, not for the first time, that his actions over the past three weeks had led me to believe something inappropriate was going on.
“He aggressively, and repeatedly, called me a psycho/ nuts/ mental. As he has done countless times throughout our relationship when I’ve questioned his inappropriate, hurtful behaviour.
“But – this whole business has served to remind me that I am a strong, capable person who is now free; and no victim.
“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.
“It’s more than lying. It’s controlling. Tell some very close friends who, if they’re anything like my wonderful network, will swoop in and take care of the logistics and of you.
“It’s important also to recognise that in these situations those who hold power over you are insecure and fragile, and their need for control comes from a place of vulnerability. I think it certainly does in Sean’s case.
“Despite everything, I hope he gets what he wants from this. I’m not sorry I took the cat though.”
While Seann’s former partner has now spoken out, Katya Jones’s husband Neil, also a dancer on the show, is yet to officially break his silence.
His lack of response comes amid reports that he is likely to forgive his wife.
