The former grid girl, 28, and Curtis, 23, - whose brother AJ is a professional dancer on the show - looked happy and relaxed as they cosied up for the camera.

Maura, who simply tagged the image "@bbcstrictly" looked fab-u-lous in a suitably glistening thigh-high dress, while Curtis looked dapper in a traditional black suit and open-collared white shirt.

AJ, I'm on my way, I can't wait to see you dance.

He had earlier offered support to his brother in his own Instagram stories, saying: "AJ, I'm on my way, I can't wait to see you dance.

"My eyes are on you boy so you best be dancing good.

"Best of luck with whichever partner you're about to get. I'm sending all my love, sending all my vibes, sending all my energy big man, you got this."

Earlier in the week the couple seemed to quash rumours of a sticky spell when Maura shared an image and captioned it: "Date night."

The pair were pictured looking intimate and happy at Sheesh restaurant in Chigwell, Essex.

The restaurant, which specialises in barbecue food and boasts a special, intimate 'Love Lounge' dining area, hosted Maura and Curtis only days ago.

Despite her busy schedule, Maura has bagged a six-figure modelling contract with lingerie brand Ann Summers reports The Mirror.

This comes after it was reported that Maura revealed that she's struggling to cope with her immense fame and has sought a doctor for help.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, Maura said she had "been in with a doctor" and was "completely burnt out".

She explained she was taking "a few days" off of work and also apologised for cancelling a personal appearance.

"It's a shock to the system when you come out of the villa," Maura said. "You're just so hectic."

The star – who is loved up with dancer Curtis Pritchard – said: "To be honest, I'm completely burnt out."
