Neil Jones ‘likens Seann Walsh to a scab after THAT kiss with wife Katya but says the couple can now recover since comedian has now left Strictly’
Strictly Come Dancing’s Neil Jones allegedly likened Seann Walsh to a ‘scab’ and said he was ‘delighted’ his wife and the comedian were kicked off the BBC competition after the pair were caught kissing.
According to The Sun, professional dancer Neil, 35, has reportedly been telling his friends he can ‘finally move on’ from the cheating scandal as Seann has left the show meaning the atmosphere is ‘great again’.
Katya Jones, 29, was caught kissing Seann, 32, on a boozy night out in London last month, despite the pair both being in committed relationships at the time.

‘Neil has been telling pals backstage that it’s only now that Seann has gone he can start to rebuild and recover.’
‘He likened having him around to when you ‘keep taking the top off a scab so it wouldn’t heal’ because seeing Seann just constantly reminded him of the kiss.’
MailOnline has contacted reps for Strictly and Neil for comment.
The couple avoided an awkward run in earlier this week as Neil and Katya made their first red carpet performance at the Pride of Britain awards, while Seann left the ceremony with a mystery woman.
Putting on a defiant display, the Russian beauty dazzled in a black gown while she clutched on to her husband nearly a month after her shocking kiss, which she later blamed on drinking too much and poor judgement.
After the bash, held at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, Seann was seen departing the venue with a mystery brunette after dodging an awkward meet with the couple on the red carpet.

Hours before, Seann, who was kicked off the show on Sunday night, joined Katya on It Takes Two where he came under fire for making a comment about looking as though he was watching ‘a drunk video’ following his shock video.
The 32-year-old made the quip as he and Katya made an appearance on Strictly sister show It Takes Two to discuss their elimination from the BBC ballroom hit.
As he was shown footage of their last dance on the popular show, Seann shockingly joked to host Zoe Ball: ‘That’s like watching a drunk video of yourself.’
He then added of their routine, which was a Viennese Waltz to the classic song I Put A Spell On You: ‘The dance that [Katya] came up with was amazing.’
After his comments aired, viewers took to Twitter in droves to call out the erstwhile contestant, particularly as several days earlier he and Katya had claimed their scandalous kiss – which saw them cheat on their partners – was a ‘drunken mistake’.
‘“That was like having to watch a drunk video of yourself the morning after…” We’ve all seen THAT video Seann,’ wrote one viewer.

‘Seann Walsh trying to make jokes but [Zoe], the crew and the whole country aren’t buying it,’ stated another on the micro-blogging site.
Many others dubbed the moment ‘awkward’ as they were reminded of the kiss, which led to the end of Seann’s long-term relationship with girlfriend Rebecca Humphries. Katya’s marriage to Neil Jones was also tested by the scandal.
Also during their time on It Takes Two, Seann and Katya recreated their Matrix dance. However, the moment wasn’t as smooth as their time on Strictly, as Katya was left with her legs akimbo while wearing a dress.
