Punters turn on Strictly love rat Seann Walsh

Punters turn on Strictly love rat Seann Walsh

Punters are backing the comedian to be eliminated next after scandal.

Comedian Seann Walsh has found himself at the centre of a media storm this week following pictures being released of him kissing dance partner Katya Jones during a night out. As a result, he is as short as 5/4 to be eliminated this Sunday.

The Strictly Come Dancing contestant, in a long-term relationship at the time, has since had to publicly apologise for the pair’s “drunken mistake”. Walsh and dance partner Katya, who is married to another professional dancer on the show, are now the least likely winners of the show with the bookies. Punters can get a best price of 66/1 on them to lift the glitter ball trophy.

Many have called for the 32-year-old to leave the competition, but they have confirmed their dance at the weekend will go ahead. He was as short as 8/1 to be the top man in the competition after their impressive performance on Saturday night, with some bookies sending him out to 33/1 the following day in light of the news.

In a bid to quell any further speculation surrounding the incident, Walsh and Jones have opted to change their choice of routine for this weekend. Originally lined up to dance the Rumba, otherwise known as ‘the dance of love’, they will now dance the notoriously goofy Charleston instead.

It appears the ‘Strictly curse’ has struck again, this being the latest in a long line of scandalous break-ups resulting from the show.

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson said: "The nation has been unanimous in their condemnation of love rat Seann Walsh, and that's filtered through to the betting for the next contestant to go.

"Their sheepish apology on It Takes Two has seemed to fool nobody, with a whopping 57% of all bets in the last 24 hours backing him to go next."
