They’ve been together for a little over two years.
And Seann Walsh and his girlfriend Grace Addlerley already appear to have taken the next drastic step in their relationship, as they headed out for a walk with their new puppy on Thursday.
Out and about: Seann Walsh and his Katya Jones lookalike girlfriend Grace Addlerley headed out for a walk with their new puppy in west London on Thursday
Seann cut a casual figure in a slate grey hoodie and black tracksuit bottoms, teamed with a mustard yellow hat.
The former Strictly Come Dancing star was accompanied by his girlfriend, who opted for an oversized black jumper and a pink cross-body bag.
Seann and Grace have been dating since 2019, and have now welcomed a new addition to their household in the form of their pet pooch.
The comic made headlines in October 2018 when he was pictured kissing his Strictly Come Dancing professional partner Katya Jones on a booze-fulled night out.

The pair faced huge backlash, given Katya was married to Strictly pro Neil Jones, and Seann was dating Rebecca Humphries at the time.
Seann has spoken in-depth about the aftermath of the controversy, and in May he said the scandal ‘destroyed his dreams’ and changed his life forever.
Speaking on the Take Flight podcast, Seann told how he had to ‘lie down in the street’ the other day after a panic attack.
Recalling the moment the kiss became public, he said: ‘From that point on my life changed for ever.
‘The panic attacks came back – big, big panic attacks and I ended up having what I later found out were Vertigo Seizures.
Relaxed: The pair, who began dating in 2019, settled down for lunch together at the café
‘I had one the other day, I just lied down – I had to lie down in the street, it’s quite humiliating. It’s London so nobody gives a s***.
‘I have to relive what happened. Still, I can be OK then suddenly the memories of it all come back.
‘It defeats me and beats me until the plates start spinning and I lose balance and fall and start screaming, so I still get them.
‘They’re less frequent, I’d never had them before. I’m on anti-anxiety, anti-depression, it’s called Sertraline. For me exercise is what helps me.’

Seann said that prior to the kiss he had big dreams for his comedy career but then felt like he was ‘living without hope’ when the scandal emerged.
He said: ‘I was a very dream-like young man, I would dream of doing the Apollo, my sitcom, I was always living in this fantasy land.
‘Then it was suddenly the first time I was living without hope.

After images and video of the kiss were released, an onlooker who witnessed Seann and Katya’s kiss, told The Sun they were ‘snogging like a pair of teenagers’ and ‘didn’t seem to care who might see them’.
Following the incident, Seann’s actress girlfriend Rebecca Humphries released an impassioned statement in which she revealed he called her ‘psycho’ and ‘nuts’ for questioning his friendship with Katya, who he kissed on Rebecca’s birthday.
While Katya was supported by her husband Neil Jones after the ‘drunken mistake’, their marriage did not last as they announced their split in August 2019.
