The Russian beauty explained: ‘It has been really hard.’

She continued: ‘During Strictly last year I had a really bad, emotional moment, I called my mum on FaceTime because I didn’t want people to understand what I was saying.

‘I felt so sorry for myself, I was in tears. 

‘I thought she was going to be nice to me and feel sorry for me, but she shouted at me: “Katya, stop crying right now and toughen up. What do you think that everyone in entertainment and the TV world is going to be nice you?”.

‘It was such a shock and it was a good thing it was exactly what I needed, I needed a kick up my a**e.’

She ended: ‘I stopped crying immediately and went, “You’re right mum”.’ 

Katya and Seann’s kiss caused a scandal back in 2018 due to Katya still being married to Neil, and Seann being in a long-term relationship with actress Rebecca Humphries.

Such was the scandal that fans of the show called for the pair to be axed from Strictly, with Seann revealing a year on that he was in therapy to deal with the backlash.

Seann and Rebecca split shortly afterwards, whilst Katya and Neil called an end to their marriage last year.

Meanwhile, Neil recently shut down rumours which claimed he’s gay.

In a new interview, the Strictly pro insisted he’s straight but joked his mother wished he was gay so they could ‘go shopping together’.

The choreographer spoke out 18 months after he was labelled as a homosexual by his love rival Seann.

During a stand-up performance in Kennington in 2018, the comedian was reported to have said: ‘You know who I am now motherf****r, I’m the guy who kissed a gay man’s wife.’

The funnyman quickly urged the audience to ‘not report that’ and insisted he was only joking.

Moving on from the jibe, dance expert Neil told The Sun: ‘In ballroom there’s a lot of straight guys. But mum was always like, ‘It’s a shame you’re not gay because we could go shopping together’. 

‘And I was thinking, ‘whether I’m gay or not there’s no chance, you take forever’.’
