Seann Walsh’s stand-up tour nearly sold out as he cashes in on Strictly snog scandal with ‘observational comedy’

SEANN Walsh has almost sold all the tickets for his upcoming comedy tour after being publicly shamed for kissing his Strictly Come Dancing professional partner Katya Jones.

The funnyman, 33, appeared on the BBC ballroom dance contest last year and was paired with Katya, 29, for the series.

However, the pair were struck by the show’s curse and they were seen snogging outside a London pub behind Katya’s 35-year-old husband Neil Jones’ and Seann’s girlfriend Rebecca Humphries’ back.

And while Seann and Katya publicly apologised after pictures and videos of their frolics were published by The Sun, it seems entertainer Seann is actually now benefiting from his raised profile.

Sharing information about his upcoming tour on Twitter, he wrote: “Nice to find out shows are selling out and dates have been added. Thank you to those that have already bought tickets and I’m really sorry if I was a Xmas present you didn’t want.”

Neil and Katya appeared this week to be back on track after she was seen kissing Seann Walsh last year.

The couple jetted to Katya’s native country of Russia to visit friends and family.

Sharing a picture of himself cosying-up to Katya on Instagram, Neil wrote: “Wow it’s cold here in Russia but I do love a bit of skating, I only wish I could dance on ice as well as a young boy after watching the Mighty Ducks movie.

“I fell in love with the ice but everyone stopped me saying what if you break your legs. Now I’m a big boy and I can do what I want.”

Posting a picture of herself posing in the snow, Katya wrote on her account: “I love seasons!!!! And if you don’t love winter like this – you’re not my friend!!! What a beautiful day!

“Walked for hours with my friend and her new born baby boy, went ice skating, walked some more, spent time with my loved ones!

“I know you’re all jealous! And I’m ok with that!”

Neil admitted that he “lost a few friends” this year after his personal life came under the microscope during Strictly Come Dancing.

The professional dancer faced a turbulent end of 2018 when his wife Katya Jones was caught snogging her dance partner Seann Walsh outside a pub.

As he reflected on his year recently, Neil said he is still fully committed to Strictly – while hinting that his relationships have felt the strain.

“I gained sooo many new friends but I also lost a few but I will never forget them [sic],” he wrote on Instagram.

He added: “Again I was honoured to be part of another successful year on @bbcstrictly which I choreographed @boyzoneofficial on @bbccin special, had a wonderful time dancing with the fabulous @itsanitarani and launched Nell de Jaunse on Ittakestwo fingers crossed I will be back next year plus you will be able to see me on the new Strictly pro tour, strictly cruises and @donaheys weekends.”

Looking forward to a fresh start, he shared: “Anyway 2018 has given so many more great moments and I’m really excited for 2019.”

Earlier this month, Neil finally stood up to Seann during rehearsals over comments the comedian made about him during his tour.

The furious dancer made it clear to Seann he wasn’t amused by his on-stage jibes, and has also banned Katya from talking to him after the final.

A source said: “Neil made angry comments backstage and complained about Seann to the other pro dancers.

“He had kept a dignified silence until now but he has also had words with Katya to tell her that once this final commitment is over he doesn’t want her to see or talk to him again.
“He’s finally laid down the law and made his feeling crystal clear.”

Comedian Seann, 33, branded love rival Neil, 35, “gay” during a Kennington gig routine revealed by The Sun.
He said: “You know who I am now, motherf*****. I’m the guy who kissed a gay man’s wife.”
