Tilly Ramsay and her professional dance partner on Strictly Come Dancing were full of smiles and hugs after an appearance on BBC’s Strictly spin-off show, It Takes Two
Tilly Ramsay and her Strictly Come Dancing professional dance partner Nikita Kuzmin shared a cosy hug amid rumours of an off-screen romance.
The 19-year-old daughter of TV chef Gordon Ramsay has formed a close bond with Nikita, 23, who has a girlfriend, with the pair showing that they are not taking the ‘Strictly curse’ rumours too seriously.
Tilly and Nikita were pictured in a jovial mood in outside the It Takes Two studios, as they laughed off rumours of romance before having an awkward looking hug ahead of leaving in a car.
The pair have already stated that their relationship is purely platonic but fans of the BBC dance competition are not convinced by the denials.
They both looked very glamorous after their appearance on the Strictly spin-off show on Wednesday, with teenager Tilly opting for a stylish black dress with matching jacket and ankle boots.
Nikita was looking suave as he wore all-black as well, with a suit, shirt and tie.
They were not shy about showing the closeness of their friendship as they posed together while laughing and giggling before hugging and departing.
A source told The Sun Online previously that their relationship was more like brother and sister and that Tilly has a close relationship with Nikita’s girlfriend, Nicole Wirt.
The source said: “Tilly finds the stories really funny. Lovers? She’s been saying he’s more like a brother.
“Tilly says Nikita is literally the funniest person she’s ever met but there’s nothing at all going on behind the scenes.
“They are too busy having fun and she’s also spoken to his girlfriend a couple of times on Facetime.”
The source added: “Tilly thinks Nicole’s amazing – an absolutely incredible dancer. She’s been really supportive of them and been wishing them well in private throughout the series.”
