Johannes has hinted that his friend is single

Johannes and Kai danced together as a same-sex pairing on last Saturday's incredibly moving pro dance number, which was inspired by series like Bridgerton. The dance touched the hearts of viewers and Johannes paid a special tribute to Kai praising him for his "allyship".

During an appearance on BBC Radio 2 with former It Takes Two host Zoe Ball, a giggling AJ downplayed the moment. "I'm just giggling! Guys, I was in character at that moment on the dance floor this week," she explained.

She continued: "I was playing Rachel, he was playing Frank [from The Bodyguard]. They were in love!" "Bit of roleplay there, that's how it all begins," Zoe joked, prompting further laughter from the Strictly star.
