The pair have barely left the headlines this week after pictures were published over the weekend showing them sharing a drunken snog in the street.

Seann, 32, was subsequently dumped by his girlfriend Rebecca Humphries.

Katya, 29, meanwhile, has insisted her marriage to fellow Strictly pro dancer Neil Jones is "absolutely fine" despite the kiss with Seann.

William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said: "The odds suggest that Seann will struggle to get enough votes to be out of the bottom two. After the week these two have had it will be hard to focus and we think their dancing will inevitably suffer."

The latest odds have Seann and Katya as 1/3 to be in the bottom two.

Their odds for being voted off are 11/8.

William Hill's full odds for the next elimination are: 11/8 Seann Walsh, 4/1 Ranj Singh, 9/2 Katie Piper, 13/2 Charles Venn, 10/1 Graeme Swann, 10/1 Lauren Steadman, 16/1 Kate Silverton, 16/1 Vick Hope, 33/1 Danny John-Jules, 66/1 Ashley Roberts, 100/1 Faye Tozer, 100/1 Joe Sugg, 100/1 Stacey Dooley.

There had been calls for Seann and Katya to quit Strictly following their kiss, but they are remaining in the competition.

They both appeared on spinoff show It Takes Two on Wednesday night, where they issued apologies for their actions and the hurt they had caused.

Seann said: "I think that, obviously I'm sorry for the hurt that I've caused. We were getting on well, we were having fun. We had a couple of drinks and we made a huge mistake and I regret it deeply."

Rebecca recently confirmed their split in a lengthy statement posted on social media, in which she claimed Seann called her a "psycho" after she speculated his behaviour was suspicious.

Seann has apologised for hurting Rebecca, but he has also defended his own reputation, insisting he's been portrayed unfairly over recent days.

Seann said: "I would rather not have to address this publicly but I feel I have to. I made a mistake, which I'm very sorry for, I'm sorry for the hurt that I've caused.

"You never think about the extent of the damage that you're going to do, in a moment of, you know the mistake that you've made. I'm not perfect, far from it. Our relationship wasn't perfect. That doesn't mean I wanted it to end the way it finally did, and I'm very sorry for that.

"I feel it's also important for me to say that the people that know me the most, that love me, they know that I am not the person I'm being portrayed as. I'm still sorry for what I did, but it's very important for me to get that out there."

Meanwhile, Katya, 29 - who has been married to fellow dancer Neil Jones since 2013 - said she apologised for the kiss, but also insisted her relationship is "absolutely fine".

She said: "Obviously I apologise, and I can't apologise enough to everyone who it hurt and involved. But, the main thing for me is that me and Neil are absolutely fine and that's what matters to me the most right now and focusing on my job and doing it as professionally I can."
