Well this has to be a world record, even for Strictly Come Dancing!
Rumours are already bubbling that love is in the air after just one episode of the world famous dancing show.
After being paired up on the opening show, The Saturdays singer Mollie King, and her new dance partner, 22-year-old AJ Pritchard, sent the social media world into a frenzy on Saturday night after posting that they were at Mollie’s house watching the TV show TOGETHER!

Watching the TV from the comfort of her very own sofa, 30-year-old Mollie recorded the moment her pairing was made, and spun round the camera to reveal a very excited AJ, who was also recording the announcement on his phone on the opposite sofa… IN MOLLIE’S HOUSE!!!
Mollie also went on to share a video on her Instagram account of the pair practising a spin, much to the delight of friends who had joined them for the occasion, and even her little dog Alfie who barked away in excitement.
And it seems the duo’s fans were just as happy by the announcement, with some reckoning this was more than a match in good-looking heaven,
One fan said: “So cute, I see a future couple on our hands”
Another said, “Wow you two make a lovely couple, could we see more Strictly romance?”
One cheeky fan even asked: “Is this the first tweet in your relationship! lol [sic]”
But with both professional and celebrity dancers being on the single list, why the heck not!
AJ has been linked in the past to dancer Chloe Hewitt, and both have been forced to deny they are anything but friends and dance partners.
Chloe said to The Sun: “Everyone always thinks we are together.”
“We have huge respect for each other and we’d never like to affect what we already have.”
She also told Weekend magazine, “We’re business partners, we’ve seen our rivals fall in love and break up, and then their dancing partnership is over and we’ve learned from that.
“If it’s going to happen it will happen, but right now our career is far more important.”
The stars have been dancing together for years, and reached the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent in 2013.
The pair also won last year’s British Open Youth Latin Champions and European Youth Latin Champions and set a new record becoming National Youth Latin Champions for three years in a row.
Mollie and AJ aren’t the first rumoured romance in the class of 2017.
According to The Sun, something’s going on between Gemma Atkinson and her fellow Strictly star Gorka Marquez, with the pair unable to keep away from each other at rehearsals. And that is one hot, seriously fit couple.
Apparently Gem and Gorka hit it off initially at his birthday meal, where the former Emmerdale actress was the only star invited, after they bonded over, er, fitness tips. Sure, that’s who we’d invite for dinner. The one we chatted to about fitness tips.
BUT ANYWAY, a source told the paper: “There is definitely something developing — everyone can see there’s an obvious attraction.”
