Seann Walshs kiss with dancer partner Katya Jones has cost him his girlfriend and rocked her marriage to fellow professional Neil.

Yet somehow Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood thinks the Strictly curse can be a blessing.

Craig weighed in on the dance partners boozy kiss during an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show, saying that he even though he backed the pair to stay on the show they should do a dance of shame on Saturday.

I think of it as a blessing, actually, he said. When you think of the success stories.

Obviously the point youre 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 that is not working anyway.

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

It doesnt mean youre going to fall in love with your partner at any given point. They are actors arent they.

Couples that have been brought together through Strictly have included Rachel Riley and Pasha Kovalev, Jimi Mistry and Flavia Cacace, as well as Ben Cohen and Kristina Rihanoff.

Seann was publicly dumped by long-standing girlfriend Rebecca Hughes on Monday, but his kiss with Katya even threatened to get him kicked off the dance show.

Craig admits he wanted them to stay and compete but pay the price in humiliation.

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

Im just saying its really important if this does happen to you, you face up to it. If youre on your Christmas party and you snogged the boss, for instance, youd still have to do the walk of shame on the Monday, wouldnt you?

When they return on Saturday, Seann and Katya are expected to keep things pretty PG with an energetic Charleston number.

Katya has chosen the Lunchmoney Lewis song Bills for Seann to dance to, so now more latex outfits or smouldering looks like last week.

Watch The Jonathan Ross Show with Shirley Ballas, Darcey Bussell, Michaela Coel and Peter Crouch on Saturday at 9.50pm on ITV1.
