AJ said: The pressure is on this week. Were doing lifts Ive never done before. Lauren laughed: “That makes me feel good…”. AJ added: “Its not an easy routine. Its the hardest routine Ive ever done. The lifts are the hardest Ive ever done and its very quick. I feel like I shouldnt have told her this on live TV…”. Lauren said: “Its going to be great. They feel fine. Its very sassy and cheeky.”

Were in full Strictly Come Dancing swing, which means the routines are getting harder and the celebs are getting better.

But as the competition heats up, it looks like the romances are as well, as pro dancer AJ Pritchard has now hinted he might be more than friends with his celebrity partner Lauren Steadman.

Speaking about his relationship with Paralympian Lauren behind the scenes, the 24-year-old said, “I am very protective of Lauren because we have worked so close together.

“There are different things that she will talk about in training that she would never talk about on camera.

“Its for that reason that we have grown so close together and we will be friends for life and who knows in the future… You never know what is going to happen.” Ooo la la.

This isnt the first time AJ has been linked to his celeb partner in the past, as the Strictly dancer was rumoured to have grown cosy with Mollie King last year – despite them both insisting their relationship was only professional.

Meanwhile, athlete Lauren, 25, will be taking on the Argentine Tango when Strictly takes its very special trip up north for an episode live from Blackpool Tower.

The talented pair received their highest score of the series so far last week with 34 points from the judges for their Viennese Waltz.

AJ has previously opened up about dancing with the Paralympian, saying shes an inspiration to young people with disabilities.

“The amount of messages we get sent in by young kids who are born with one arm and they say, Seeing you on TV makes it more normal for us to have an arm like this,” he said.

He then added, “In the past, people would come up to Lauren and look at her arm and be cautious. Now they talk to her and they want to touch her arm and they say, Oh my God, you are so amazing on Strictly.”
