Graeme Swann put Seann Walsh in a spin with jibe over kiss scandal
STRICTLY Come Dancing’s Graeme Swann says his reaction to Seann Walsh’s kiss with Katya Jones did not go down well with the comedian.
The cricketer, 39, thought Seann might see the ‘lighter side’ of his joke but that was far from the case.
Recalling seeing Seann for the first time after the scandal surfaced, he said: ‘I was there with a stupid grin on my face laughing — not at what he’d done but the situation he’d found himself in. He just looked at me, said, “Please don’t, mate” and walked off.’
While he understood the 32-year-old’s reaction, the ex-spinner added: ‘It was his own fault. You play with fire you’re going to be burnt.’
Graeme also told Radio 5 Live’s Test Match Special podcast Strictly bosses put dancers under ‘curfew’ after the kiss scandal — a claim they deny. And he said he practises his dance moves in front of a CCTV camera on his drive to ‘get it right’.
Meanwhile, his dance partner Oti Mabuse cleared up what she meant when she told The One Show Graeme had ‘personality, but down there doesn’t work well. I meant his feet,’ she blushed.
