Media captionWalsh said “bar the last few weeks” it was the “best experience of my life”

Seann Walsh, who was photographed kissing his dance partner Katya Jones outside a pub, has been eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing.

The comedian’s time on the show was overshadowed by controversy after the pictures were published in the Sun on Sunday three weeks ago.

The revelation led to the end of his relationship with actress Rebecca Humphries.

Walsh said “bar the last few weeks” it was the “best experience of my life”.

Following a low-scoring Viennese waltz the public vote put them in the bottom two, alongside ex-cricketer Graeme Swann and Oti Mabuse.

After the dance-off the judges unanimously voted Walsh and Jones off, making them the fifth couple to leave the show.

Walsh said: “When you watch it and hear people at the end say this has been the best experience in my life…you don’t really believe, but this has been without a doubt the best experience of my life. Probably bar the last few weeks.

“But generally speaking, from the beginning it really was. I can’t believe it, it’s been amazing.”

Turning to Jones, he said it had been a “dream come true and that’s because of you”.

After the results show, the pair sent separate tweets, thanking fans and each other.

Walsh joked that he danced like a “shed in the wind”, to which Jones responded: “Stick to what you’re good at!”
