Strict stars AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington poke fun at romance rumors in Cheeky VT
Since the early days of this year’s series, the couple have repeatedly been at the center of rumors that they may be more than just dance partners.
And while they’ve always been quiet about the suggestion that they go out privately, they shed light on the rumors during their VT intro on Saturday night.
In the clip, the two were seen sitting together in a park while discussing their upcoming performance
“This is Musical Week and we’re waltzing to The Sound Of Music,” Kai explained. “The characters we play are fundamentally a love story. So we better get down to business.
“Let’s do it,” AJ agreed.
What followed was a fantastic streak in which the two paid homage to Captain Von Trapp and Maria, running towards each other in slow motion and kissing.
“Kai, I’m not going to kiss you,” AJ interrupted sharply, to which he protested, “But we get into character! “
As AJ shrugged and laughed at his alleged advances, Kai simply said, “Okay.”
Back in the studio, the two did indeed bounce back after being at the bottom of the charts last week, with a romantic waltz to the song Edelweiss.
The routine ended with a long, lingering gaze between AJ and Kai as they channeled their Sound Of Music characters.
AJ ended up scoring 38 from the judges, placing her in second place in the standings … although we’ll just say that there the performance dropped a bit later that night, she could very well have landed itself a perfect score.
He was a social media star Tilly Ramsay who came out on top this week, blowing the judges away with her Couple’s Choice routine on Matilda’s Revolting Children.
His score of 40 was particularly noteworthy as Tilly and Nikita Kuzmin had found themselves in the dance for the previous two weeks.
Find out which of the remaining seven couples will return home this week when Strictly returns Sunday night at 7.15pm on BBC One.
