Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood has said that Seann Walsh and Katya Jones will be performing the "dance of shame" this weekend following the cheating scandal that has dominated the press all week.

The pair were forced to apologise after being spotted kissing after a night out in London, despite both having romantic partners. 

After the photos surfaced, actress Rebecca Humphries, Walsh's girlfriend of five years, took to Twitter to accuse the comedian of "inappropriate, hurtful behaviour" throughout their relationship. Walsh later apologised on Strictly spin-off show It Takes Two but added: "I am not the person I'm being portrayed as."

It had been speculated that Walsh and Jones might quit the series before the next episode, but it was later confirmed will take to the Strictly dancefloor this weekend to perform a Charleston to the track Bills by LunchMoney Lewis.

Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, judge Craig Revel Horwood didn't mince his words about the situation.

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

"It's really important that, if this does happen to you, you face up to it. 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'."

He added: "If you were at your Christmas party and you snogged the boss, for instance, you'd still have to do the Walk of Shame on the Monday, wouldn't you?"

Horwood described the so-called Strictly curse, which has been blamed for many relationship break-ups, "as a blessing, actually ... when you think of the success stories".

However, he added that Walsh and Jones' kiss was "very different because one person is married, the other one had a girlfriend".

"People ... if they are in love or are married, end up being absolutely faithful to one another because of that love. There has to be something wrong in your relationship before it all goes awry", he said..

Strictly judge says Seann and Katya's dancing improved last weekend due to "hard work"

The dancing expert added that the pair's dancing had improved last weekend, when they performed a Paso Doble to the Matrix theme.

"I would not put that down to a snog at the back of a pub", he went on to explain. "I would put it down to hard work and having to act through the dance and tell that story."

Meanwhile, head judge Shirley Ballas said she hopes viewers "judge the dancing and not the relationship or anything else, that it's purely down to what they see on the viewing on a Saturday evening".

The interview airs on The Jonathan Ross Show on Saturday at 9.50pm on ITV....
