Strictly Come Dancing stars Tilly Ramsay and Nikita Kuzmin have addressed romance rumours.
The pair have been spending a lot of time together both on and off the dancefloor, with many speculating that they are secretly dating.
But the 19-year-old and her 23-year-old pro dancer partner have since shut down the rumours, with Tilly insisting they are just close friends.
She told HELLO! magazine: “We really are just good friends and dance partners!”
Tilly, who is the daughter of TV chef Gordon Ramsay, gushed: “I’m over the moon, I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher. I thought we’d get on, but we’ve surprised ourselves with just how well we have.”
Nikita added: “She’s the best student I could ever wish for, for my first partner. There couldn’t have been a better match. We get on so well – we’re laughing a lot but also she knows when I snap my fingers and it’s time to concentrate, she’s fully in it.”
While Tilly is currently single, Nikita has been dating his girlfriend Nicole Wirt for the past five years.
Strictly Come Dancing continues tonight at 7:10pm on BBC One.
