Jones, who is married to Strictly choreographer and dancer Neil Jones, wrote on Twitter that she was “so sorry for any offence or hurt” her actions may have caused.
“I wasn’t thinking and it was a one-off mistake after some drinks,” she continued. “I love my husband and we are very happy together, this is not a reflection on our relationship.”
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.
Comedian Walsh, who is dating Hollyoaks actress Rebecca Humphries, referred to the kiss as a “drunken mistake”.
“In light of the story in today’s newspaper I would like to offer my sincere apologies for my actions,” he posted on Twitter. “This is no excuse but it was a one-off drunken mistake which I am truly sorry for.”

The kiss reportedly took place on Humphries’ birthday, according to The Mirror.
Humphries, who was in the Strictly audience on Saturday to watch Walsh’s Matrix-themed Paso Doble, broke her Twitter silence on Sunday after author Marian Keyes posted various tweets criticising Walsh and Jones’s “treachery”.
Just to clarify, I'm not. I'm powerfully AGIN. Feck them and their foncy Matrix choreography. What use is any a that if they have treachery in their hearts? https://t.co/4kZEiAs7du
