Mollie and AJ were left red-faced during last week's live show as their fellow pros chanted for them to kiss after a triumphant quickstep on Saturday night.

They set tongues wagging yet again as they cam extremely close to a smooch after being declared safe on Sunday's results show - no doubt, fuelling romance rumours which have plagued them for weeks.

The pair couldn't contain their delight as they were announced as safe for another week, and while the camera zoomed out and the lights dimmed, it seemed as if they almost locked lips.
