Strictly Come Dancing contestant Seann Walsh and his professional dancing partner Katya Jones made a subdued appearance on the spin-off show It Takes Two to address the cheating scandal that has blown up since pictures of them kissing were published at the weekend.
The pair apologised in separate statements on social media after they were spotted kissing after a night out in London, despite both having romantic partners.
Walsh's estranged girlfriend, the actress Rebecca Humphries, subsequently took to Twitter to say she has not received apologies from Walsh or Jones and alleged that Walsh gaslighted her when she voiced her suspicions about his relationship with Jones.
The 32-year-old comedian spoke about the controversy on It Takes Two, telling host Zoe Ball: "I think that, obviously I'm sorry for the hurt that I've caused. We were getting on well, we were having fun.
"We had a couple of drinks and made a huge mistake and I regret it deeply."

Jones, who is married to fellow Strictly pro-dancer Nick Jones and previously said the kiss "was not a reflection" on her marriage, added: "Yes, obviously I apologise, and I can't apologise enough to everyone who it hurt and involved.
"But, the main thing, me and Neil are absolutely fine and that's what matters to me the most right now and focusing on my job and doing it as professionally as I can."
Walsh appeared to address Humphries' allegation that he called her "psycho" when she suspected something was going on with his dancing partner, and that he engaged in "inappropriate, hurtful behaviour" during their relationship.
"I think first of all I would rather not be having to address this publicly, but I feel like I have to", he said.
"I made a mistake, which I'm very sorry for - sorry for the hurt that I've caused.
"You never think about the extent of the damage that you're going to do, in a moment of, you know the mistake that you've made.
"I'm not perfect, far from it. Our relationship wasn't perfect. That doesn't mean I wanted it to end the way it finally did, and I'm very sorry for that."
He added: "I feel it's also important for me to say that the people that know me the most, that love me, they know that I am not the person I'm being portrayed as.
"I'm still sorry for what I did, but it's very important for me to get that out there."
