After the duo performed a Quickstep on tonight's show (October 20), viewers couldn't help pointing out the awkwardness of one of Head Judge Shirley Ballas's comments.
Shirley told Seann: "Not your best dance today, but a good effort. You did a little misstep," before adding: "You felt it, didn't you Seann? Tell Shirley you felt it. I know you did."
A flustered Seann laughingly replied: "I felt it Shirley," while host Tess Daly pulled a face and said: "Glad we cleared that up."
Guest judge Alfonso Ribeiro – who was filling in for Bruno Tonioli – also seemed a little taken aback, joking: "How do you follow that?"
Tweets from fans included: "Oh dear that was a badly timed joke from Shirley considering Seann and Katya's hard week recently," and: "Shirley saying 'You felt it Seann didn't you?' Badly timed!"

Seann and Katya both released public apologies following their now-infamous smooch.
Seann and Katya ended up scoring a total of 24 for their dance, placing them second from the bottom on the leaderboard. Could they be in trouble in tomorrow's (October 21) results show?
