Chatting to Zoe Ball, the professional dancer explained: "God I chucked a lot into the dance and I was not giving up. It didn't go quite as planned. He's got massive bruises and scratches on his back and then he hurt his knee as well."

The pair were back to their old selves during the interview on Wednesday after a tense week last week after the pair were filmed kissing after a few drinks, leading to Seann's girlfriend of five years, Rebecca Humphries, breaking up with him. Addressing their rehearsal time the week before, Seann said: "Last week we had a bit less time as well - it was tense, I have to say. when we started on Saturday I had no idea if it was going to work. You don’t know what’s going to happen... It was big week, we had the support of everyone, it was lovely so there was more to it." Katya also took to Twitter to send her fans a message after they were safely through to next week's episode, simply writing: "Thank you."
