STRICTLY viewers were left cringing tonight as Seann Walsh and Katya Jones stood far apart during the final.
The couple caused a furore earlier in the series after The Sun exclusively revealed pictures of them sharing a drunken snog outside a London pub.
This was despite the fact Seann, 33, had a girlfriend and Katya, 29, is married to fellow Strictly pro Neil Jones.
Tonight, they returned with the rest of the celebrities from the series, but didn’t stand anywhere near each other in the ‘Clauditorium’ as they watched the finalists dance.
Viewers noticed the distance between them, and took to Twitter to comment on the awkwardness.
One wrote: “Notice Seann and Katya are stood miles apart” above a gif of two people with binoculars and the words ‘How Far?”
Another added: “Seann standing well away from Katya.”
A third agreed, writing alongside a picture of model Chrissy Teigen looking awkward: “Seann and Katya back in the same room.”
Seann and Katya managed to stay in the competition for a further three weeks after the kiss, before being voted off in week six.
Earlier today, The Sun exclusively revealed how Neil Jones has finally stood up to Seann during rehearsals over comments the comedian made about him during his tour.
The furious dancer made it clear to Seann he wasn’t amused by his on-stage jibes, and has also banned Katya from talking to him after the final.
A source said: “Neil made angry comments backstage and complained about Seann to the other pro dancers.
“He had kept a dignified silence until now but he has also had words with Katya to tell her that once this final commitment is over he doesn’t want her to see or talk to him again.
“He’s finally laid down the law and made his feeling crystal clear.”
Comedian Seann branded love rival Neil, 35, “gay” during a Kennington gig routine revealed last week by The Sun.
