Strictly's AJ Pritchard and Lauren Steadman fuel dating rumours as they blush after tour judges praise their 'romantic' performance

The Paralympian reached the semi-final of the 2018 series with AJ, 24, and they have been wowing audiences around the country for the last few weeks with their routines as part of the tour.

But last night at London's Wembley Arena, judge Darcey Bussell couldn't help but comment on their couple's chemistry.

After Lauren, 26, and AJ performed their touching Viennese Waltz to You Are The Reason by Calum Scott, Darcey praised Lauren on how much her dancing had improved.

She then added they had brought "plenty of romance" to their performance, which appeared to make the pair blush and squirm a little.

Host Ore Oduba then added fuel to the fire, saying Darcey was "reading between the dance lines", causing the audience to 'ooh', 'ahh' and whistle their approval.

However, their romantic routine wasn't enough for them to lift the glitterball trophy at the end of the Wembley show, with the honour going to Joe Sugg and his dancer girlfriend Dianne Buswell.

It isn't the first time AJ and Lauren have been romantically linked, as during last year's series, AJ hinted there could be more than friendship between them.

He told The Mirror: "I am very protective of her because we have worked so closely together.

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

“It’s 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.”

Lauren isn't the first celebrity partner AJ has been linked to, as rumours previously circulated that he was dating his 2017 star, Mollie King.

Most recently, The Sun revealed AJ had been seen passionately snogging Caroline Flack at the National Television Awards in London.

The Strictly Come Dancing Tour continues tonight at Wembley Arena before heading to London's O2 Arena on Saturday, February 9 and Sunday, February 10.
