Craig Revel Horwood says Katya Jones is to blame for her kiss with Seann Walsh on Strictly Come Dancing.
Strictly contestant Seann and his professional partner Katya have been the focus of attention all this week after being pictured "snogging like a pair of teenagers" ahead of last Saturday's show.
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 - claiming that Katya was the one in the wrong.
He said: "Personally, I think Katya was in the wrong. She should have put a stop to it because she’s a professional dancer.
"It’s her job not only to protect her own relationship, but to protect the celebrity’s and be the mentor. I think she broke protocol over that. She should never have allowed it to happen.
"And, of course, she’s married and her husband Neil is on Strictly."
Speaking ahead of tonight's live show, Craig said: "[Tonight] will be tough for Seann and Katya, and Neil. That’s where the awkward part of this whole scenario lies as they’re the ones who have to face the music.
"They’re the ones who have to go on and do the dance of shame. It’s like going to a Christmas party and you snog the boss. You still have to come to work on Monday if you want the job."
Tonight, Katya and Seann will be performing the Charleston.
But however it goes, bookies are tipping the pair for the axe.
Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: “The odds suggest it won’t be enough to save the cheating pair, who had just started to make their way up the leaderboard, at 11/10 Seann will be the latest celeb to make their exit regardless of his scores this weekend.”
Strictly Come Dancing airs Saturday and Sunday night on BBC One.
