And despite Nicky Campbell's prediction, Piers Morgan has said he hopes the pair can continue to compete on the programme, telling viewers he "can't wait" to watch the programme as it will be "fantastically awkward".

Seann and Katya had been due to appear on ITV's Lorraine this week, however they pulled out, much to the announce of presenter Lorraine Kelly who praised Rebecca Humphries' statement calling it 'classy' and 'amazing'.

The actress said in her statement on Twitter that she was "not a victim" and revealed that the pictures were taken last week on her birthday while she was home alone.

She said that "his actions over the last three weeks had led to believe something inappropriate was going on".

"I have a voice and will use it by saying this to any woman out there who deep down feels worthless and trapped with a man they love:

"Believe in yourself and your instincts. It's more than lying. It's controlling.

"Tell some very close friends who, if they're anything like my wonderful network, will swoop in and take care of the logistics and of you.

"It's important also to recognise that in these situations those who hold power over you are insecure and fragile, and their need for control comes from a place of vulnerability.

"I think it certainly does in Seann's case. Despite everything, I hope he gets what he wants from this. I'm not sorry I took the cat though."
