Inside I’m a Celeb star Seann Walsh’s nightmare after Strictly cheating ‘destroyed’ his career | The Sun

STRICTLY love rat Seann Walsh has been revealed to have signed up for I’m A Celebrity.

ITV bosses hope the comic, 36, will finally tell all about his snog with pro partner Katya Jones, 33.



Their shock romance in 2018 ended the dancer’s marriage and his own five-year relationship.

Relationship breakdown

After the kiss, comedian Seann’s world came tumbling down and he’s since expressed regret over the effect it had on his then-girlfriend, Rebecca Humphries.

The actress accused Seann of gaslighting her and calling her a “psycho” when she confronted him with her suspicions that something was going on during his time on the BBC1 dance contest.

Only when he was pictured snogging Katya, who was then married to fellow pro dancer Neil Jones, did she discover the truth.

But it was the shocking way that it came out publicly that bothers Seann the most.

He said: “What you are thinking about is: ‘What have you done to someone?’ It’s one thing doing that privately and I don’t judge anyone, because everyone’s got their own backstory, lives or whatever.

“It was horrific. It was crazy.”

He continued: “I have such amazing memories of being on that show and then the repercussions of that kiss, it was crazy. I’m just a comic.

“I can’t go near anything Strictly, I can’t. It just messes my head up.

“One day I hope I can look back at that fondly, that first few weeks, because it was the best time of my life.”

Career struggles

Seann was forced to turn to the government scheme for support during the pandemic as jobs dried up in lockdown.

His company, Seann Walsh Limited, was number 595,144 on the list of 740,000 businesses and individuals who made a claim in December.

Seann is his company's only employee, and the star was fully entitled to the pay-out after his income took a hit in lockdown.

Just this week, Seann opened up on having to fund his new comedy show.

He took to social media and wrote to his fans: “I’m funding this all myself so appreciate the support from all that have come to see me over the last few years and continue to watch my stuff. It means a lot. One day, some f***** will pay me for this again.”

ITV bosses hope jungle life will give Seann the perfect opportunity to finally tell all.

A source said: “Seann is an incredible signing for I’m A Celebrity and it’s a real coup for ITV.

“His snog with Katya is the biggest scandal to have ever hit Strictly. People still talk about it.

“Seann has joked about his snog with Katya in his comedy sketches but he’s never spoken in detail about their relationship.

“Life in the jungle is boring and those long hours around the campfire would be the perfect time for Seann to get talking.

“He can’t shy away from it either as he’s best known for that snog.

“It’s unlikely his campmates won’t bring it up. It won’t be an easy watch for Katya or the people burnt by their romance.”
