    I don't think there'll be much point in voting this coming Saturday - I reckon the couple who will be leaving is pretty much a forgone conclusion

    I wouldn't be so sure, the strictly curse can be a good thing ever since natasha kaplinsky won strictly while having an affair with her dance partner Brendon Cole.

    I think seann will do very well in the competition, people will want to see how their relationship develops.
    A lot of the dances are very intimate, you need to see the chemistry there and the passion.

    Disappointed Lee has gone, he didn't deserve to go out so early..

    I know we are all different but I tune in to watch a dance competition, not some kind of "Love Island set to music".

    If contestants/ professional dancers can't keep their hands of each other outside of the dances then they need to keep it private.

    Natasha and Brendan was 14 years ago, I think attitudes have changed since then. Also, it was only ever a rumour as opposed to this blatant exhibition.

    I very much doubt that he will do well now. Who on earth is sad enough to be in the least bit interested in their 'relationship'. Although it is possible that more people will tune in this Sunday just to see them booted off.

    I read online this morning that the judges wanted them sacked!

    The programme will be well chuffed with all the publicity and a probable increase in viewing figures!
    The annual strictly curse has always been a very important factor of the show.

    I wouldn't have thought the producers are at all chuffed by what's going on. Strictly has a reputation as a family show and this just tarnishes the show's reputation

    When the dancers are single then fair enough, but one is married and the other in a long term relationship

    You don't know tv at all, the producers will be absolutely delighted at all the publicity this is bringing, even making national news now, which will probably result in high viewing figures.
    Notice how the show are not throwing the pair off, they are revelling in it, desperate for the pair to dance on Saturday for the increased viewing figures.

    And as for it being a family show, that is very debatable with the amount of sexual innuendo in it. Bruno, for starters, is like a horny dog trying to hump every contestant's legs!

    Maybe I don't know tv but I know what I don't like, and I don't think viewing figures are going to go up with people tuning in to see if any relationship develops

    I hope Seann goes on Saturday as he is the worst dancer and was massively over marked by the judges on Saturday.

    I did see something on BBC news about the comedian. It all kicked off on social media with A4 letter pages being written by the "ex file".

    For me, the comedian should be evicted. Him and the dancer.

    I am sorry but this "it was a drunken think" is a joke. A joke that is not funny.

    He and his dancer have brought shame to a BBC TV show.

    This is nothing compared to Ben Cohen cheating on his wife and leaving his kids for dancer Kristina Rihanoff, then getting her pregnant.

    An extremely over the top reaction from you.

    Seann is an idiot who snogged a MARRIED woman. Yes Katya is the one who is married and yet it is Seann being torn to shreds by the newspapers and various tv programmes.

    Why should either of them have to leave Strictly? We only know they snogged and even if they did go further well if everyone that has been unfaithful got sacked from their job there would be hardly anyone in work in the UK.

    I absolutely detest cheating but think the amount of publicity this has received is ridiculous and pathetic. It was even on News at Ten! Everything going on in this country and the world and this was considered newsworthy!

    Today there are TEN separate stories in the Mail about it. Just about all of them primarily being nasty about Seann.

    I could understand it more if it were the Prime Minister or a member of the Royal Family but not a dancer that only people who watch Strictly will have heard off and a comedian. Sorry but he hasn't committed a murder has he?

    I know allegations have now been made by his ex girlfriend but that is all they are - allegations. She may well be telling the truth but there is also the possibility she could be lying.

    I used to play badminton and tennis, and mixed doubles in both sports resulted in many relationships breaking up. Dancing is no different, where there is constant touching and holding, it is pretty much inevitable that if there is a connection/attraction then being human beings, then they will enjoy more than just the moment.
    All of the dancers, men and women are in great shape and very attractive, and the celebrity dancers probably spend more time with them training than they do with their partners.

    I'll still vote for them. I watch for the dancing - their personal lives are none of my beeswax

    (Although my favourite for this year is DJJ, but I don't think Amy's much of a choreographer! I also like Faye - she's been ace!)

    Ok, so Seann and Katya on ITT just now...
    Not sure what to make of it tbh, but it certainly made uncomfortable viewing.
    Zoe Ball appeared quite uncomfortable as well.

    Katya looked as if she was holding a lot back while Seann was speaking. First time I've seen it addressed up front and quickly.
