Anton du Beke: Seann Walsh and Katya Jones could win Strictly

Anton du Beke thinks Seann Walsh and Katya Jones could win "Strictly Come Dancing".

The 52-year-old dancer believes there's no reason why the pair couldn't go all the way and lift the Glitterball Trophy, which comes after the 32-year-old comedian was pictured locking lips with his pro dance partner - who is married to fellow "Strictly" star Neil Jones - despite having a girlfriend at the time.

Seann and Katya, 29, escaped being eliminated from the show on Sunday night (21.10.18) after ending up in the bottom two, with Vick Hope and Graziano Di Prima losing out instead.

Anton is quoted by the Daily Mirror newspaper as saying: "Could they go all the way? Yes, I think so. Absolutely. I don't see why not now.

"It does get people talking about the show."

While Anton believes the couple have the potential to triumph on the series - it has been claimed that Seann - who was ditched by girlfriend Rebecca Humphries after his and Katya's snog saga was exposed - is being "ignored" by his fellow "Strictly" stars and has been ostracised from the WhatsApp group, which has been joined by all the show's current competitors and their partners.

An insider said: "This series is definitely the most bitchiest and frostiest series ever and there is Seann standing right at the heart of it.

"It was always felt that Seann wasn't as liked from the start but after he was pictured kissing Katya those feelings against him have only intensified.

"Seann was overheard voicing his concerns that he gets ignored on the group. He'll put out a message and only receive a muted reaction.

"Then another member of the group will message something completely different and receive several responses to it. It's everyone's not-so-subtle way of making sure he's aware how everyone feels, especially when Neil and Katya are also present on the group.

"Everyone wishes that he could be taken off of it, as it would make things considerably less awkward, but instead he's just been phased out with the hope he'll leave of his own accord."
