Strictly Come Dancing contestant Seann Walsh and his professional dancing partner Katya Jones made a subdued appearance on the spin-off show It Takes Two to address the cheating scandal that has blown up since pictures of them kissing were published at the weekend.

Rebecca has since liked a series of tweets accusing him of "passing the blame", after he turned on her and claimed he had been "wrongly portrayed".

The pair both released statements immediately apologizing to their respective partners, but this morning, Seann's now-ex girlfriend, Rebecca Humphries, has released her own statement, calling Seann out for gaslighting and manipulating her.

He and Jones, the victor of last year's Strictly, had previously apologised on Twitter after their public kiss came to light. "I'm not sorry I took the cat though".

She continued: "Those pictures were taken on October 3rd".

"I wasn't thinking and it was a one-off mistake after some drinks". 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.

Walsh's estranged girlfriend, the actress Rebecca Humphries, subsequently took to Twitter to say she has not received apologies from Walsh or Jones and alleged that Walsh gaslighted her when she voiced her suspicions about his relationship with Jones.

'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.

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.

'But - this whole business has served to remind me that I am a strong, capable person who is now free: and no victim.

"I feel it's also important for me to say that the people that know me the most, that love me, they know that I am not the person I'm being portrayed as".

"Believe in yourself and your instincts". It's more than lying, it's controlling. I think it certainly does in Sean's case. "I love my husband and we are very happy together, this is not a reflection on our relationship", her husband Neil simply posted a mostly naked selfie and ignored the drama. "I'm still sorry for what I did, but it's very important for me to get that out there".
