STRICTLY’S Rylan teased that there was “so much love” in the studio after Tilly Ramsay and Nikita Kuzmin “flirty” appearance on It Takes Two.
Gordon Ramsay’s daughter Tilly, 19, impressed judges on Saturday with her Foxtrot to Little Things by One Direction.
On tonight’s spin-off show, pro dancer Nikita told Rylan: “Dancing this week with Tilly was like dancing as partners.”
The host replied: “You say the connection that can happen, Shirley [Ballas] had to check that you weren’t glued together because you were just in such unity.
“How hard is that for a non pro to keep up?”
The Ukrainian dancer, 23, explained: “That’s so hard because you have to be so smooth on your feet work which we worked really hard on and then transition from one side to the other.”
Turning to Tilly, he praised her and said: “You were just incredible.”
Tilly returned the compliment adding: “I have an amazing teacher.”
This prompted Rylan to exclaim: “It’s all love on here…it’s all love.”
BBC One viewers have are convinced they’ve spotted a romantic connection between Tilly and Nikita after some sizzling performances over the past few weeks.
They were also seen sharing an awkward hug amid rumours they’ve grown close on the BBC show.
The pair wrapped their arms around each other outside the Strictly It Takes Two studios.
Strictly viewers aren’t just talking about Tilly and Nikita’s dance moves as they can’t get over the pair’s connection – sparking speculation about the Strictly curse striking once again.
Tilly has introduced dance-partner Nikita to her uni pals – after logging on for lessons during rehearsals.
As well as regularly inviting Nikita round for tea with her family and famous dad Gordon Ramsay he’s met her mates too.
A source said: “Due to Strictly training, Tilly is having to combine uni with dancing but she has been able to successfully mix things up.
“She’s been logging into lessons online from rehearsals and last week took the chance to introduce Nikita to some of her mates.
“It was a bit surreal for everyone else but Tilly is hoping she is going to be part of the show for many more weeks so she thought it was important her uni colleagues got the chance to say hello.
“Since being paired Tilly and Nikita have been inseparable. They’ve probably put in more hours of training than any other couple and have become really good friends.”
Rumours first began to swirl after the pair were pictured heading to Tilly’s London flat earlier this month.
The gossip heightened when Nikita’s girlfriend Nicole, 23, deleted a social media message in which she expressed her support for the Strictly Come Dancing pair.
Nicole, also a professional dancer, has been dating the Ukrainian heartthrob since 2016.
She initially seemed proud of the duo when she posted a picture of their waltz from Saturday’s show with the caption: ‘Cheering on my faves.’
But the message was removed and instead the dancer, who is based in Germany, followed the post with a message that said: “Stop complaining so much over things you can’t change or control.”
