Fans of the show immediately started speculating that the good-looking pair were perhaps already a little more than just friends.

AJ fuelled the rumours even more by sending out a Tweet to his followers which read: “I’m so happy @MollieKing @bbcstrictly 2017.”

However, Mollie has now squashed the gossip. Speaking to the Huffington Post, she said: “I think there’s always some kind of romance rumour so it didn’t surprise me but I hardly even know him well so far, so there’s no truth in that.”

“But he’s such a sweet heart and obviously he is a beautiful boy so I’m very lucky.” she continued.

The pair definitely seem to be getting on very well, with the 30-year-old blonde continuing to post her fondness for the professional dancer on social media, including a snap of them out shopping, where she described him as a “#gent”.


We’re excited to see how the two perform on the show!
