                            Rebecca Humphries gets massive online support for publicly dumping Seann Walsh over 'Strictly Come Dancing' kiss scandal

Rebecca Humphries has very publicly dumped her boyfriend of five years, Seann Walsh, after the 'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant was filmed kissing his partner on the show, Katya Jones, on the streets during a night out. But as dramatic as the affair may be, there has been a massive downpour of messages on social media in support of Rebecca, especially after she released a lengthy statement explaining her decision.

The statement - posted on Twitter on Monday night - is pretty much kick-ass, as Rebecca spoke "in her own terms" about Seann's “inappropriate and hurtful behavior", revealing she had also "taken the cat" after leaving their West London home. "This whole business has served to remind me that I am a strong, capable person who is now free; and no victim," she wrote.



 

"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 recognize 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 Sean's case."

As soon as she shared this message on Twitter, messages started flooding in from hundreds of social media users who were all praises for her honesty and the brilliant way she put her message across. Celebrities like Stacey Solomon, Sam Claflin, Carol Vorderman, and Myleene Klass were also among those who showed her love and support on the issue. 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 



 

As for Seann and Katya, both of them had issued public apologies for whatever happened, claiming that their kiss was just a "one-off mistake". Katya also claimed she was "very happy" with her husband of five years and fellow 'Strictly' pro Neil Jones. Even though Neil is yet to address the issue, he did, however, praise Katya and Seann's most recent 'Strictly' performance on Instagram just hours after the kissing footage of the two had surfaced.

As of now, the show bosses have shared that Katya and Seann will be performing together on Saturday night's show. A spokesperson for the show told HuffPost UK there is "no update on the previous position" in the wake of Rebecca's statement.
