After hitting the headlines for his drunken kiss with his Strictly Come Dancing partner Katya Jones last year, Seann Walsh has been keeping a relatively low-profile. However, last week, the comedian was happy to show the world he has a new lady in his life - US stand-up star Madison Sinclair. In pictures, obtained by the Sun, the pair could be seen locking lips outside Dan Tana restaurant in West Hollywood, Los Angeles. Moments later, they then made a pit stop at a local store to pick up some essentials - including a pineapple.
"They were standing around chatting before Seann went in for the lunge," a source told the publication, also adding: "Seann was looking pretty smug, and kept giggling. They seemed set for a lively night." A day after the pictures emerged, Madison took to Instagram to share a tongue-in-cheek post, which read: "Glad me and this pineapple can finally go public." Meanwhile, just hours before their public kiss, Seann shared a photo of Madison on his own Instagram feed. The TV star, who was seated next to Madison in the photo, captioned the shot: "Gonna miss this crew @murraycummings @madisonsinclair @davewaitecomedy @tessiewessieee @katie_scar @clairejdonald @reyes_knight."
Last year, Seann's drunken smooch with professional dancer Katya was the talking point during Strictly. His actions subsequently forced his then-girlfriend Rebecca Humphries to end their five-year romance. She won a legion of followers after posting a defiant statement, confirming their split. Speaking about the split from Rebecca, Seann revealed on It Takes Two: "Our relationship wasn't perfect. That doesn't mean I wanted it to end the way it finally did, and I'm very sorry for that." He added: "I feel it's also important for me to say that the people that know me the most, that love me, they know that I am not the person I'm being portrayed as. I'm still sorry for what I did, but it's very important for me to get that out there."
