Strictly’s Seann Walsh suffers fall in rehearsals ahead of live shows


Strictly Come Dancing star Seann Walsh took a tumble after falling off a table during rehearsals for the show this week.

The comedian took to Instagram on Thursday as he and pro partner Katya Jones filmed themselves practising their Viennese Waltz to I Put A Spell On You for Saturday night’s Halloween special.

After falling, Seann joked about failing at his vow to be less clumsy after judge Darcey Bussell criticised his “clumsiness” in last week’s show.

He wrote: “Following Darcey’s advice, this week’s goal was to be less clumsy…”

Seann then posted a video of himself and Katya dancing as he stepped up onto a small red table, before the prop collapsed beneath him causing Seann to fall to the floor onto his lower back.

Katya let out a screech as she stood over her dance partner as he led on the floor.

In another post shortly after, Seann simply wrote: “Typical.”

Seann and Katya were saved by judges last weekend following a dramatic dance-off against Vick Hope and pro Graziano Di Prima.

They had also been in the bottom two the previous week, however, were saved by judges as Katie Piper was voted off.

Earlier this month, Seann and Katya were at the centre of controversy after they were pictured snogging in the street following a night out in London.

Comedian Seann was subsequently dumped by his girlfriend and they were calls from some viewers for Seann and Katya to be pulled out of the competition.

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.

Seann, meanwhile, also apologised for his actions, with both him and Katya saying it had been a drunken mistake.

Following the kiss, Seann and Katya performed the Charleston after reports claimed Strictly bosses had changed the pair’s upcoming routine to make it “less sexy”.

Meanwhile, on Saturday night, the duo are hoping to impress judges with their Viennese Waltz to I Put A Spell On You by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins.
