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 they’d had a few drinks, we’ve all had a few drinks.”
But now the 47-year-old has done a total U-turn and confessed she’ll no longer be watching the show because it’s “too awkward”.
“I don’t think I can watch it. I think I’d 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, “I’m so sorry about any offence or hurt I may have caused with my actions. I wasn’t 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 Seann’s now ex-girlfriend’s 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 [Seann’s 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 don’t think it’s right they carried on the way they did, they have to be professional.”
Piers Morgan, on the other hand, didn’t agree, saying, “It’s fantastically awkward, I can’t wait to watch them dance now.”
Despite Seann offering his “sincere apologies” on Twitter, Rebecca revealed he’s not been in touch to personally apologise to her before denying she’s a “victim”.
The drama continues…
