Good Morning Britain host Susanna slams the Strictly stars, days after defending their snog in the street
Susanna Reid shocked Good Morning Britain viewers when she defended Strictly stars Katya Jones and Seann Walsh for cheating on their partners earlier this week, saying, “It was just a kiss, and theyd had a few drinks, weve all had a few drinks.”
But now the 47-year-old has done a total U-turn and confessed shell no longer be watching the show because its “too awkward”.
“I dont think I can watch it. I think Id find it way too awkward,” she confessed.
Katya, 29, and Seann, 32, have been caught up in a media storm since pictures of them kissing emerged – leaving fans questioning whether they should walk out of the competition or be allowed to stay.
Katya – who is married to fellow Strictly professional, Neil Jones – issued a grovelling apology on Sunday, saying, “Im so sorry about any offence or hurt I may have caused with my actions. I wasnt 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.”
But, given Seanns now ex-girlfriends damning statement – in which she calls out his “inappropriate” and “hurtful behaviour” – others think the pair should be given the boot.
Socialite, Lizzie Cundy, said, “I think after the statement there is no choice, he has to go.”
“If she [Seanns now ex girlfriend Rebecca Humphries] were to write and say she supported her partner [it would be different]. It is one of the biggest BBC shows, it is a family show, and I dont think its right they carried on the way they did, they have to be professional.”
Piers Morgan, on the other hand, didnt agree, saying, “Its fantastically awkward, I cant wait to watch them dance now.”
Despite Seann offering his “sincere apologies” on Twitter, Rebecca revealed hes not been in touch to personally apologise to her before denying shes a “victim”.
The drama continues…
