The couple scored highly

Kai previously opened up about the rumours on It Takes Two after viewers were convinced the pair were dating following their steamy Argentine Tango. He explained: "If people react like this it means we're doing something right, because that's the way the dance should be danced. It was a very passionate song, a real fiery piece and very intimate.

"And that is the characterisation of Argentine tango. So if people want to think that, then great... but we were just doing our job and [AJ] did a great job."
