Seann Walsh and Katya Jones to perform romantic routine on Strictly Come Dancing

The pair have performed more restrained dances since they made headlines for an illicit kiss.

Seann Walsh and Katya Jones will dance their first romantic routine since they made headlines following a kissing scandal.

The pair have been in the media spotlight since they were forced to apologise for a kiss on a night out and have danced chaste routines on Strictly Come Dancing since their indiscretion.

After performing an unromantic Charleston and a quick step, the pair will dance a more tender Viennese waltz, performed to I Put A Spell On You by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, an emotional song with lyrics that suggest a fraught romance.

This Saturday’s show will have a Halloween theme and 11 couples will compete to stay  in the series.
