Gushing with praise for AJ, Mollie said: “Spending all this time with AJ I feel so lucky.

“So just a huge thank you to everyone who has voted us through, and to AJ who has got somebody who has got two left feet to this point – he is an absolute legend.”

A third tweeted: “MOLLIE AND AJ WERE THINKING ABOUT KISSING I SAW IT IN THEIR EYES #Strictly”

The rumoured couple found themselves in the bottom two and had to face former Emmerdale actress Gemma Atkinson in the dance off.

The judges voted unanimously to send Mollie home and keep Gemma for the final.

AJ added: “Mollie has been the best partner ever, willing to train non-stop with me and put up with me all the time.

“And who would have thought that we would make it to the semi-finals.

“Week one and that jive and I thought ‘oh my, it’s going to take a lot’ and then endless hours of training have produced fantastic performances and I am sorry I didn’t get you to the final.”

The pair also confirmed they would continue to dance together, another seeming nod to their rumoured romance.

Mollie’s exit means Alexandra Burke, Debbie McGee, Joe McFadden and Gemma Atkinson are this year’s Strictly Come Dancing finalists.

The Strictly Come Dancing Grand Final will be on next Saturday at 6.30pm on BBC One.
