Strictly Come Dancing fans couldn’t believe the awkward scenes on tonight’s show as AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington were urged to kiss by the presenter’s nephew and host Claudia Winkleman, as romance rumours continue to swirl around them.
For Halloween Week 2021, AJ and Kai performed a powerful Viennese Waltz to Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande, maintaining the drama that they brought last week with their Argentine Tango which featured an almost kiss.
Ahead of their spooky routine, AJ received the wonderful surprise of her nephews and nieces paying them visit during rehearsals.
However, she wasn’t expecting the hilarious remark one of her nephew’s came out with, when he said that she and her professional dance partner should kiss.
For weeks, there has been speculation that AJ and Kai’s relationship has evolved into a romantic partnership, with the pair remaining coy over the attention.
So when AJ’s own nephew told them to smooch, viewers couldn’t handle it.
‘Why don’t you just kiss him?’ one person tweeted with a cry-laughing emoji, adding: ‘That kid steering the AJ & Kai ship.’
‘AJ’s nephew knows what’s up, asking the question we’re all thinking,’ someone else said.
Another person remarked: ‘Absolutely love AJ’s nieces and nephews: “Why don’t you just kiss him?” So cute.’
However, that wasn’t the only mention of a possible AJ and Kai romance, as Claudia chimed in after they had performed their Viennese Waltz.
As they waited to receive their scores, Claudia implored Kai to kiss AJ, saying that now was the right time.
An embarrassed Kai then frantically said that he’d give AJ a kiss after the scores had been revealed by the judges. Way to quell the rumours!
‘I’m laughing but cringing at the same time with Claudia telling Kai to kiss AJ. Leave them alone ffs. I totally Stan them as a couple but still,’ one person tweeted in response to the awkward moment.
‘Claudia ships AJ and Kai,’ another fan wrote.
Regardless of the speculation, AJ and Kai are undeniably continuing to deliver stellar performances week after week.
The Strictly Come Dancing results show airs tomorrow night at 7.15pm on BBC One.
