After weeks of rehearsals the pair have formed a close friendship having recently been spotted on a night out in central London with their partners.

With only weeks left to go until the grand finale, the competition is about to get even fiercer, as the remaining celebs battle it out for the famous Glitterball Trophy.

Earlier this week, Strictly Come Dancing bosses hit back at ‘fix’ and favouritism claims after statistics showed that nearly half of all the show’s winners were from the BBC.

Out of all the winners of the BBC series – which began in 2004 – 18 of them, or 44 per cent, have been celebrities who are on the channel’s books.

But a representative of the programme denied claims that BBC stars are more likely to reach the final, insisting that ‘the winner is decided by the public.’

It comes just days after Adam Peaty’s mother slammed Strictly and said she is ‘not buying the public vote’ after her son was eliminated.

During its 17-year run, Strictly has seen several mainstream stars lift the coveted glitterball trophy, including Stacey Dooley, Tom Chambers, Ore Oduba and Joe McFadden.

While EastEnders actresses Kara Tointon and Jill Halfpenny have also emerged victorious.

Other winners connected to the BBC include Chris Hollins and Natasha Kaplinsky.  

Out of the 264 contestants in Strictly’s history, 102 of them – 39 per cent – have worked for the broadcaster. 

However, a Strictly representative shut down the report, stating to MailOnline: ‘These statistics are misleading. The winner of Strictly is decided by the public vote.’
