Seann Walsh wisely kept his distance from Neil Jones – the husband of his dance partner Katya – on Strictly Come Dancing tonight.
The comedian, who enjoyed a drunken snog with Neil’s wife last week, gingerly stayed on the other side of the room from the professional dancer tonight.
And the space put between the two men wasn’t lost on viewers.
"GUYS. Seann disappeared off-screen just as Ginger Neil arrived. You can’t fool us, Strictly," one fan tweeted.
"Anyone else playing close attention to the distance between Seann and Neil," another added.
"I feel most sorry for Neil Jones who is smiling away how must he be feeling now it’s going to be interesting to see what happens when Seann & Katya dance," a third viewer wrote.
At the start of the show, Strictly faced the music and addressed the biggest controversy of the week.
Show bosses decided to face the scandal head on and gave Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman the job of making light of the situation.
The hosts made reference to the scandal at the start of the show when they quipped: "I’d say it’s been a quiet week… apart from the odd headline."
There were calls for the duo to be axed from the show after they were pictured kissing in the street on Seann’s girlfriend’s birthday.
But the controversial duo will dance the Charleston to Bills by Lunchmoney Lewis.
Last Saturday, the duo danced a passionate paso doble, just hours before pictures of them locking lips were released online.
But this weeks Seann and Katya’s dance was changed in a bid to make it less sexy.
Ironically, a line in the song talks about a girl leaving her boyfriend, after Seann was dumped by girlfriend Rebecca Humphries.
It was reported that Strictly bosses were locked in crisis talks over whether or not to axe Seann from the show, in light of his snog with pro partner Katya , who is married to Strictly dancer Neil.
Insiders revealed that the pair were due to be dancing an intimate number on Saturday night – which was switched at the 11th hour by bosses who were horribly aware that viewers would be scrutinising every aspect of the couple’s body language and chemistry.
Dancing the Charleston tonight could mean the pair don’t touch each other.
Compared to other dances performed on the show, contact is minimal and some variations of the dance mean the duo performing don’t even touch at all.
