On Monday, Mr Walsh's Norwich-born girlfriend Rebecca Humphries broke her silence on the issue.

One post liked by Humphries read: 'It's very easy to be blind to the control & pain you're being subjected to when you love someone so much. It's more than lying.

Both Stacey and Ruth said it was easy to look in from the outside and say you'd forgive the person or not mind them still being in the competition, but it's very different when you're the person at the centre of the story.

In the statement, Rebecca also accused her partner of five years of "inappropriate and hurtful" behaviour, and claimed that although he has spoken to the media, she is yet to receive an apology from him.

Jane Moore added: "It's a very hard situation because anybody in that situation would say, "Okay, if I give you another chance it's on the basis you never see that person again" but they have to go back into rehearsals".

Seann and Katya meanwhile called the incident "a one-off drunken mistake" in their statements.

This weekend's Mega Millions tickets will be available for $2 per ticket and can be purchased until 10:45 tonight in MA . Mega Millions officials say no tickets matched all six numbers to claim the estimated $548 million grand prize.

Humphries writes that the entire scandal has served to remind her she is a "strong, capable person" who is now "free" - and encourages other women who feel "worthless and trapped with a man they love" to get out. "It's controlling. Tell some very close friends who, if they're anything like my wonderful network, will swoop in and take care of the logistics and you". I was alone at home when Seann texted at 10pm, saying the two of them [he and Katya] were going for one innocent drink.

During the brief interview, Seann told Zoe Ball he "deeply regretted" the kiss and was "obviously sorry for the hurt" he had caused.

She is reportedly yet to receive a first-hand apology, said she has left him and taken the cat and is "not sorry" for doing so.

Comedian Walsh and Jones appeared on the BBC Two programme on Wednesday to address the kiss, which had resulted in Walsh being publicly dumped by his partner Rebecca Humphries, and which also prompted speculation around Jones's marriage with Strictly dancer Neil Jones. "Of COURSE. I'm so upset for you, I've been thinking about you all day", Marian responded.

Strictly Come Dancing's Seann Walsh and Katya Jones will dance in this week's show despite the controversy surrounding their off screen relationship.

Seann has yet to speak out following Rebecca's statement, although he previously tweeted: 'In light of the story in today's newspaper I would like to offer my honest apologies for my actions.
