STRICTLY Come Dancing love rat Seann Walsh has apologised to his ex-girlfriend Rebecca Humphries for putting her through a "form of abuse". The comedian was left disgraced when he was pictured snogging his dance partner Katya Jones on a drunken night out behind both his girlfriend and her husband's backs. Now in a new interview to be aired on Saturday night's Jonathan Ross Show, Seann has acknowledged the hurt he caused actress Rebecca. He said: "Obviously I was stupid and I was selfish and I was hurtful to someone that I cared about and someone that I respected, and I still care about and still respect. "I will always be sorry about what I did. I think when it all blew up, I don’t think I reacted in the correct manner. "I didn’t know what to do, it was huge.

FORMER Strictly Come Dancing pros, Vincent Simone and Ian Waite, visited their ex colleague James Jordan as he rehearsed for Dancing On Ice. The BBC stars joined 40-year old James on the rink as he showed them what he has been up to since swapping his ballroom shoes for a pair of ice skates. Vincent and Ian were visibly nervous as they stepped onto the ice, with James taking control as he supported his wobbly pals. At one point, 39-year-old Vincent slipped onto his back before opting to crawl along the ice on his knees rather than risk standing up again. Vincent appeared on Strictly for six years between 2006 and 2012, with Ian, 48, working on the show between 2004 and 2010. James was a pro on the show between 2006 and 2013. The professional dancers' uneasy experience on the ice will no doubt help put to bed the rumours that James' extensive dance experience gives him an unfair advantage on the ITV skate show. The TV favourite has been at the centre of controversy since signing up to … [Read more...] about Dancing On Ice’s James Jordan visited by Strictly pals Vincent Simone and Ian Waite as they join him on the ice at rehearsals
