Professional dancer Kai Widdrington, 26, shared a picture of himself smiling at his Strictly Come Dancing partner AJ Odudu, 33, as she seemingly adjusted his braces backstage. The dancing duo seemed to be enjoying each other’s company in a dressing room along with Gorka Marquez, who was on camera duties, ahead of tonight’s show.
The Strictly pro shared the picture on his Instagram page, in view of his 92,000 followers.
He captioned the snap: “Show day!!! [wink face emoji] @bbcstrictly #strictly.”
Many of his fans flocked to his post to comment, with a few fair speculating that there could be a romance on the cards.
Miss Sixty Eight commented: “That’s the look of love.”

His comment sparked rumours that they could be growing close behind-the-scenes.
The couple, who are believed to be single, were quizzed about the comment on Strictly: It Takes Two earlier this week by Janette Manrara.
After the clip was played, the host asked: “Do you find that you’re getting a bit of a deeper connection in this partnership?”
AJ turned to Kai to answer the question, who said: “I think that was all down to just the tough, tough week that we had and the fact that we got to the end of the performance and it was flawless and you smashed it, and you did all the lifts brilliant, did all the technique perfect.
The Big Brother’s Bit on the Side host was also asked about a potential romance on Zoe Ball’s Breakfast Show this week.
At first, AJ giggled at Zoe’s question and gave no answer.
The BBC presenter then exclaimed: “She’s giggling nervously, that’s a good sign!”
The Strictly star went on to say: “You know, I was in character at that moment on the dance floor this week.”
“I was playing Rachel, he was playing Frank, they were in love.”
