Strictly Come Dancing is back and fans are waiting to see if the so-called "Strictly curse" will strike, and Seann Walsh, a previous contestant who fell victim to it has shared advice that helped him on a podcast.
Comedian Seann appeared on the show in 2018, and was pictured kissing his dance partner Katya Jones after a night out.
Seann was in a long-term relationship at the time, and Katya was married to fellow Strictly professional Neil.
He gave an interview to the Success Won’t Come Calling podcast.
Presenter Simon Gibson asked how Seann coped with the fallout once the affair became public.
Seann says the best piece of advice he received came from the women closest to him.
“They said be good to yourself, which I found extraordinary”.
After this he decided to stop drinking, tried to eat more healthily and started running.
He also attended to therapy to cope with the huge amounts of angry criticism he received on social media.
Seann say there was then a second wave of the backlash, when people thought he was trying to make himself out to be the victim.
He eventually left Twitter as it became too much, and says he wasn't trying to be the victim and instead was answering the questions about his mental health.
Seann said: “It’s like, you should be happy that I had a terrible time, just enjoy that and stop getting more angry at me”.
He also talked about suffering from severe panic attacks, and being prescribed antidepressants.
Fans have already started to speculate about whether any of the latest couples will fall foul to the curse.
Many noticed that Tilly Ramsay, 19, seemed infatuated with her new partner, Nikita Kusmin, 23.
