All the Strictly winners:
Katya made headlines on this year's Strictly after she was caught kissing her celebrity partner, Seann Walsh, on a night out in London. The married dancer apologised on Twitter, saying it was a "one-off mistake". She continued: "I love my husband and we are very happy together, this is not a reflection on our relationship." While Neil and Katya have remained together, Seann was dumped by his girlfriend Rebecca Humphries.
