I’m A Celeb star Seann Walsh wraps up in a quilted winter coat and beanie hat as he walks his dog in chilly London after returning from three week stint in the Australian jungle
The Australian sunshine was a distant memory as Seann Walsh took his dog for a post Christmas walk in chilly London on Thursday.
The comedian – back in the UK after participating in the 22nd series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! – wrapped up warm in a large black quilted coat, worn over a pair of matching tracksuit bottoms during his latest outing.
Blink 182 fan Walsh, 37, appeared to be in high spirits as listened to music while walking his dog close to the home he shares with pregnant girlfriend Grace Adderley.

The appearance comes after he admitted his ‘bad experience’ on BBC show Strictly Come Dancing almost stopped him from appearing on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
Walsh, who was pictured kissing his married professional dance partner, Katya Jones in 2018, said he found the idea of another reality show ‘terrifying’.
At the time he was in a relationship with now ex-girlfriend Rebecca Humphries while Katya was married to fellow dancer Neil Jones.

Walsh, who finished in fifth place in the jungle, said it was his pregnant partner who eventually persuaded him to take part in the ITV challenge.
He told HELLO! magazine: ‘Grace said to me “This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance. The adventure itself will make it worthwhile” – and she was absolutely right.
‘I was so petrified of getting backlash. I’d had such a bad experience with all the things that were said about me last time [on Strictly], the idea of that happening again was terrifying.’

Scandal: Walsh, who was pictured kissing his professional partner, Katya Jones in 2018, said he found the idea of another reality show ‘terrifying’
During the show, Walsh discussed his Strictly kissing scandal, calling it the ‘worst moment of my life’, with his agent saying his ‘career was dead’.
He told fellow comedian Babatunde Aleshe: ‘It was easily the most depressing month of my entire life, Edinburgh after Strictly.
‘Just before I’m about to go on (and do a show), my agent comes in and goes “Just so you know, there’s like 30 people”.

Chatting to campmate Sue Cleaver, he added: ‘Me and my dance partner, who was married, I was in a relationship, we were photographed kissing when we were on Strictly Come Dancing… that was the front page of every newspaper.’
Sue asked: ‘Why did that crucify you? Why did that have such an impact?’
Walsh said: ‘To be totally honest with you, my poor ex, my girlfriend at the time, posted a statement. My girlfriend [at the time] posted a statement and that was the end of me.’
