As if he hasn’t interfered enough with Katya and Neil Jones’ relationship, Seann Walsh has reportedly called Neil “gay” during a comedy set.
The axed Strictly Come Dancing contestant – who was caught cheating with his married professional dance partner – is said to have told a pub audience: “You know who I am now, mother[bleepers]. I’m the guy who kissed a gay man’s wife.”
Onlookers told The Sun that he then laughed and added: “Please don’t report that. I’m only joking. I’m just here trying to make you laugh.”
He later added that he did not “bang” his 29-year-old dance partner.
It comes a few days before Seann, 33, will be reunited with Katya for the Strictly final on BBC1, where they will dance again.
Neil, 35, has yet to comment on social media about this story, instead choosing to focus on the announcement of his husband-wife dance show in London next June.

Katya, meanwhile, posted a picture of herself smiling and spoke about happiness.
The caption read: “I believe people who are happy make other people happy.”
She also posted several enthusiastic messages about the show, which is called Somnium and will play at iconic theatre, Sadler’s Wells.
ED! has contacted Neil’s representatives for comment.
In case you’ve already forgotten the dramatic events in the early weeks of Strictly, the comedian and his dance partner were pictured kissing passionately in the street after a night out.
An onlooker told The Sun: “They were snogging like a pair of teenagers and didn’t seem to care who might see them.”
They later apologised, with Seann’s long-time girlfriend, Rebecca Humphries, publicly dumping him.
Seann said: “I would like to offer my sincere apologies for my actions. This is no excuse but it was a one-off drunken mistake which I am truly sorry for.”
Katya meanwhile said: “I’m so sorry about any offence or hurt I may have caused with my actions. I wasn’t thinking and it was a one-off mistake after some drinks.
“I love my husband and we are very happy together, this is not a reflection on our relationship.”
This outburst comes days after Sean spoke on stage at The Comedy Store in London about the scandal, where he rather retracted that apology.
The TV star said: “Look, I don’t really need to explain myself but I will anyway.
“I was coming towards the end of my relationship, I was getting on with this girl. You spend a lot of time with your dance partner on the show and we went for a drink and one thing led to the other. Most of you have seen the result.”
He then added: “I actually started to think to myself, ‘Hang on, have I actually done anything that wrong?'”
