Katya Jones has jokingly told her Strictly Come Dancing partner Seann Walsh to quit dancing following their elimination from the competition.

The pair became the fifth couple to be sent home from this year’s series following a dance-off with cricket star Graeme Swann and Oti Mabuse on Sunday night.

After the elimination, Katya took to Twitter to thank fans for their support and to issue some advice to comedian Seann.

She wrote: “Thank you so so much to everyone who had our support through out this journey!

“We’re gutted not to be able to do more fun routines for you! But I hope we entertained!”

Teasing her celebrity partner, Katya joked: “@seannwalsh please don’t keep dancing stick to what you’re good at!”

Seann responded: “Unbelievable.”

Seann also took to social media to reflect on his Strictly journey.

He wrote: “Thanks everyone. And thank you to @Mrs_katjones for managing to keep in a man that dances like a shed in the wind for this long. I’ll see you soon. Keeeeeeep laughing.”

Following their elimination on Sunday evening, Seann and Katya spoke to host Tess Daly about losing the dance-off.

He said: “When you watch it and hear people at the end say this has been the best experience in my life I don’t think you don’t really believe but this has been without a doubt the best experience of my life, probably bar the last few weeks.

“But generally speaking from the beginning it really was. I can’t believe it, it’s been amazing.”

Katya added: “It wasn’t easy but thank you for your commitment every single day.

“We did twelve hours, it was amazing and I’m so proud of you from day one when you couldn’t get your right from your left and now delivering dances like that that. Thanks for making me laugh a lot.”

Stand up Seann, 32, was left at joint rock bottom of the leaderboard on Saturday night alongside Dr Ranj Singh and Janette Manrara and newsreader Kate Silverton and Aljaž Skorjanec after the judges gave him 20 points for his Halloween routine.

Seann and Katya managed to escape the chop last week in a crucial decider opposite DJ Vick Hope and Graziano Di Prima, baffling many fans who expected the controversial comedian and his partner to be booted off the dance floor after their infamous snogging scandal earlier his month.

The pair both issued apologies after they were pictured kissing after a night out at the beginning of the month, calling it a “mistake”.

Seann was subsequently dumped by his girlfriend and Katya was forced to defend her marriage to husband Neil, saying they are “very happy together” and the kiss was not a reflection on her marriage.
