The latest post raised eyebrows amongst their fans, with one writing: "If you're not together, I'll hand deliver you both Oscars I swear." Another joked: "Keep checking to see if you've got married yet to each other xx."

A third post read: "Aren't you two together! C'mon did we all imagine the blazing romance?" Another said: "I want you guys to get together!"

Kai, on the other hand, appears to have travelled back to his family home to see his loved ones for Christmas. He took to his Instagram Stories to share a fun TikTok clip of himself dancing with his sister.

AJ shared a series of throwback snaps with Kai

Earlier on in the series, AJ was asked by BBC Radio 2 DJ Zoe Ball if she and Kai were more than friends following their passionate routine for movie week, which was based on the hit film, The Bodyguard. "Some of the newspapers are trying to allude – and I think everyone is hoping and praying – that maybe, romance…?" Zoe remarked to the star.

As Zoe then noted that AJ was giggling, the presenter insisted: "I'm just giggling! Guys, I was in character at that moment on the dance floor this week." She continued: "I was playing Rachel, he was playing Frank [from The Bodyguard]. They were in love!"

Zoe then joked: "Bit of roleplay there, that's how it all begins," prompting further laughter from the Strictly star.

On Saturday, both AJ and Kai were heartbroken after they sadly had to pull out of the grand finale due to an injury.
