Said Walsh claims he left his girlfriend days before kissing Katya Jones.
The 32-year-old told mates that he had taken time with actress Rebecca Humphries two weeks ago.
Seann Walsh, 32, was caught in confidential snapshots last week when he had his professional partner Katya Jones smooched. He insists that the actress only came to the studios to cheer him on because she already had a reserved ticket.
A friend said, "Seann and Rebecca had a stormy relationship that was very beautiful.
"He says he called the days before her birthday – that's the night he and Katya kissed – and explains why he was not with Rebecca that night.
"It's also why he did not apologize more explicitly – as far as he's concerned, he was a single man at the time of the smooching.

"Yes, the timing was still not great – but he feels unnecessarily vilified."
When he enrolled in Strictly's BBC2 offshoot this week, the shaggy comedian apologized for the "injury" he had caused.
He added, "We had a few drinks and have a lot of regrets, and I very much regret it."
