Strictly presenters Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman were careful to avoid any reference to the kiss all weekend, and in Sunday's brief interview Claudia only asked Seann what his favourite dance character had been, leaving no leeway for awkward discussion. A show insider told The Sun that the kiss does little to dispel the "Curse of Strictly" - rumours that the programme, and the close nature of the working relationship between celebrities and their professional partners, leads to the end of relationships.
But the new clip confirms they will dance the Charleston to upbeat hip-hop track Bills by LunchMoney Lewis on Saturday.
As the grubby images splashed across the British tabloids, both Walsh and Jones issued grovelling apologies.
Katya is married to fellow Strictly pro dancer Neil Jones while Seann is now in a relationship with his girlfriend Rebecca.
"I wasn't thinking and it was a one off mistake after some drinks".
At one stage, Katya and Seann stood on one side, while Neil waited on the other.
However, Rebecca handled the situation with complete dignity by releasing a powerful statement telling the world "she is not a victim" and we are completely behind her.More news: Red Sox fall to Astros in ALCS opener

Rebecca ended their five-year relationship after Seann was seen drunkenly kissing Katya last Wednesday, while his girlfriend was alone on the night of her 32nd birthday.
Rebecca also labeled "controlling" and said she had taken their cat.
He wrote: "In light of the story in today's newspaper I would like to offer my honest apologies for my actions".
"I think what's changed in our society is that we've been fed a lie, and that's that sex is important, and sex is the thing that has the most meaning".
Reflecting on his separation, he added: 'I made a mistake, which I'm very sorry for - sorry for the hurt that I've caused. He aggressively, and repeatedly, called me a psycho / nuts / mental. "As he had done countless times throughout our relationship when I've questioned his inappropriate, hurtful behaviour". Despite everything, I hope he gets what he wants from this.
Humphries statement comes as Walsh and Jones have cancelled a slew of planned joint publicity commitments for their Strictly Come Dancing stint - amid calls for them both to be axed from the show.
"I have taken a lot from this experience and it has all been really positive, and I'll never forget this journey".
