Strictly's Craig Revel Horwood says Seann Walsh's moves 'improved' after Katya Jones snog as Shirley Ballas begs viewers to judge the pair only on the 'dancing'

However, the judge insists he doesn't think it was all down to a "snog at the back of a pub".

Craig, 53, made the comments on the Jonathan Ross Show this week days after Seann, 32, got dumped by his girlfriend Rebecca Humphries, 32, after The Sun On Sunday's pictures showed him kissing Katya, 29.

The pair's naughty night out happened before they danced in the live show last Saturday.

When asked about the pair's moves, Craig said: "There was a mild improvement from the week before but I would not put that down to a snog at the back of a pub."

He was on the show with fellow judge Shirley Ballas, who begged viewers to judge the pair only on the dancing.

She said: "[I hope they will] judge Seann and Katya on the dancing and not the relationship”.

When asked what will happen if they land in the dance off, Craig added: "We can only say who is better or worse than the other one. We are professional.”

Also on the show was ballerina-turned-Strictly judge Darcey Bussell, who insisted that dancing with various partners over the years never affected her own marriage.

She said: "“I danced for over 20 years in The Royal Ballet and I’m still happily married.”

Darcey added: "It’s like a soap opera in itself."

Yesterday Seann, 32, and pro partner Katya, 29, were filmed cooking and scoffing a pizza for a skit on the show — the day after unconvincing apologies for their smooch on spin-off It Takes Two.

Grim-faced Seann, dumped by actress Rebecca Humphries, 32,  said their five-year relationship was “far from perfect” anyway. Russian Katya insisted her marriage to show choreographer Neil Jones, 35, was “absolutely fine”.

Watch the full interview on The Jonathan Ross Show on ITV at 9:50pm on Saturday.
