Strictly Come Dancing's Seann Walsh was snubbed by his fellow contestants on Sunday night after he was saved by the judges.
The comedian and his dancing partner, Katya Jones were in the dance off with Vick Hope and Graziano Di Prima, however, as the judges were unable to come to a unanimous decision, head judge Shirley Ballas made the final decision to send Vick home.
As Vick and Graz were announced as the couple leaving the competition, their fellow dancers rushed over to console the couple after the cameras stopped rolling, leaving Seann stood on the outside alone.
Seann then gave up and went to see his own friends and family as all the other dancers stayed on the dance floor.
:"As the group joined Vick and Graz on the dance floor at the end, everyone understandably went straight to the pair, but Seann very much seemed to be on the outside of the group as although Karen gave Katya a massive hug no one approached him immediately," a source told Metro.
"Giovanni gave him a big hug but he was on the outside looking in, and after the cameras stopped rolling he stood aside and didn't join in with the group although Katya stayed close, and he then went to speak to family and friends in the audience."
It comes after it was rumoured that Seann wasn't being acknowledged in the Strictly Whatsapp group, with a source claiming he gets few responses from the other dancers after messaging the group and is faced with a 'frosty' atmosphere backstage during the live episodes.
However, a BBC One spokesperson has said that the reports are 'total nonsense'.
Judge Craig Revel Horwood has already made his thoughts on the kiss scandal very clear and during an interview on Loose Women he blamed professional dancer Katya for the kiss.
He explained that it was like 'a teacher snogging a student' and that Katya should be 'taking more of the blame' for the kiss.
The judge did praise the pair for returning to the competition after doing the equivalent of 'snogging your boss at a Christmas party'.
