Rumours have been flying about the so-called Strictly Curse since this series of BBC hit show Strictly Come Dancing began.

But professional dancer Kai Widdrington chose to keep egging them on this Saturday night, as he promised to land a smooch on his celebrity partner AJ Odudu at the request of her nephew.

The pair rocked up to Halloween week with AJ in a stunning Medusa costume, and blew the judges – and the audience – away with their Viennese Waltz.

But it was when the dance was over and the pair taken up to receive their scores that things took a turn for the steamy.

As they chatted to host Claudia Winkleman about their performance, Claudia said: "I would like to say, on behalf of your nephew – if you wanted to kiss, at any point – come on Kai! Kai! It's the right time!"

Giggling, Kai agreed: "I know it is, I know. We'll do it after the scores!"

Both Claudia and AJ burst out laughing at the vow.

"Goodness me, you tease!" Claudia managed to say through her giggles, as AJ agreed: "How exciting!"

But true to his word, Kai did proceed to plant several kisses on AJ – albeit on the back of her hand like a true gentleman.

It comes after the pair came dangerously close to sharing a kiss on the mouth after their breathtaking dance last week.

Kai was quick to put a stop to the rumours on It Takes Two, telling host Rylan Clark: "If people react like this it means we’re doing something right, because that’s the way the dance should be danced.

"It’s was a very passionate song, a real fiery piece and very intimate.

"And that is the characterisation of Argentine tango. So if people want to think that, then great… but we were just doing our job and [AJ] did a great job."

But fans on Twitter just want the pair to share a proper smooch, and turned to Twitter to post: "I love that AJ and Kai have just given up on trying to hide anything!"

"AJ & Kai winning Strictly & falling in love is exactly the happy ending to 2021 that this country needs!" someone else chimed in.
