Craig Revel Horwood says Strictly Come Dancing couple Katya Jones and Seann Walsh should perform a 'dance of shame' on Saturday night.

Strictly contestant Seann and his professional partner Katya became the focus of attention all this week when they were pictured "snogging like a pair of teenagers" ahead of last Saturday's show.

Katya is married to fellow Strictly pro dancer Neil Jones while Seann was in a relationship with actress girlfriend Rebecca Humphries, before she dumped him in a lengthy statement posted to Twitter.

The pair spoke out about the incident on It Takes Two in the week, saying sorry for their "mistake" and giving their side of events.

Now Strictly judge Craig has spoken out in an interview on The Jonathan Ross show on ITV.

"My take was keep them in the show, make them do the Dance of Shame, if you like," he said.

Craig explained: "I’m just saying it’s really important that if this does happen to you, you face up to it and you either, as they’ve done, apologise which is absolutely fine but get on with the job and show people what you’re made of and show people, 'Ok, this is what I did, I’ve been employed to do this job, I’m going to go on, do the job, get on with it and do it well and do it professionally.'"

In his appearance, Craig also gave his view of the supposed 'Strictly curse'.

"I think of it as a blessing, actually, to be honest. When you think of the success stories," he said. "Obviously the point you’re making in question is very, very different because one person is married, the other one had a girlfriend but my point in this entire thing is, if you come on Strictly, sometimes you are in a relationship of course that is not working anyway.

"And people, I have noticed, that if they are in love or are married, end up being absolutely faithful to one another because of that love."

He concluded: "It doesn’t mean you’re going to fall in love with your partner at any given point. They are actors aren’t they."

The Jonathan Ross Show will air on Saturday 13th October at 9.50pm on ITV.

Meanwhile, bookies have made Seann the favourite to get the boot from Strictly this weekend.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Seann Walsh certainly isn't laughing now with our latest figures revealing he's the least popular contestant ever to take to the Strictly dance floor."

Strictly Come Dancing airs this Saturday and Sunday night on BBC One.
