The duo weren’t voted off Strictly until three weeks later, but rumours have circulated for weeks since that the Katya and Neil’s marriage has suffered thanks to the kiss, while Seann has been cashing in on the uproar by branding himself Britain’s ‘most hated comedian.’
The comic was also banned from next year’s Strictly tour, and Seann and Katya have also since been axed.

Seann tried to make light of the cheating scandal as he returned to comedy after being voted off the BBC show.
He branded Neil ‘gay’ at a stand-up gig following his drunken kiss with his wife Katya and joked about his new found celebrity status.
Seann told the shocked crowd at the Always Be Comedy night at The Tommyfield in Kennington: ‘Before the show, the newspapers were complaining they didn’t know who I was.
‘You know who I am now, motherf******. I’m the guy who kissed a gay man’s wife.’
Giggling uncontrollably, he quickly backtracked on his shocking comments and said: ‘Please don’t report that. I’m only joking. I’m just here trying to make you laugh.’
