After performing the Argentine Tango, Adam and Katya leaned in very close to each other, sending fans into a frenzy.
One viewer tweeted: “Did Adam just go to kiss Katya and then remember they’re on TV?!” while another asked: “DID ADAM AND KATYA ALMOST KISS???”

Adam, who is an Olympic swimmer, is dating Eirianedd Munro – who took to TikTok to react to the steamy moment.
Sharing a video of herself pretending to cry, the 23-year-old wrote: “watching your boyfriend almost kiss another woman live on TV.”
Eiri, who shares a son named George-Anderson with Adam, then began fake crying more dramatically, and added: “Finding out 10 million people also watched it live.”
In 2019, Katya announced her split from her husband Neil after 11 years together.
The year prior, the professional dancer was pictured kissing comedian Seann Walsh – who she was paired with on Strictly.
Katya tweeted at the time: “I’m so sorry about any offence or hurt I may have caused with my actions. I wasn’t thinking and it was a one-off mistake after some drinks. I love my husband and we are very happy together, this is not a reflection on our relationship.”
Seann was also in a longterm relationship at the time, and recently admitted the cheating scandal “destroyed” him.
