What happened with Adam and Katya on last night’s Strictly?

The couple performed the first Argentine tango of the season and boy was it steamy.

Viewers quickly took to Twitter to accuse to Olympic swimmer of all sorts.

They thought the duo got a little too caught up in the heat of the moment, claiming they almost kissed at the end of the performance.

“Did Adam just go to kiss Katya and then remember they’re on TV?!” asked one.

“Adam definitely nearly kissed Katya at the end there,” claimed another armchair judge.

“Only 10 million saw Adam nearly kiss Katya,” declared another.
