Well, if we didn’t think Mollie and AJ were sh*gging before… we do now!

They’ve definitely generated an awful lot of romance rumours throughout their time on this year’s Strictly.

In fact, their seriously hot chemistry was this weekend referred to live on air by even the show’s presenters, Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman.

Sadly, however, Mollie King and her professional partner, AJ Pritchard, were on Sunday evening eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing – becoming the 11th couple to go, and thus narrowly missing out on next week’s final.

It was The Saturday singer’s third time in the bottom two, this time finding herself up against actress Gemma Atkinson.

Her dance-off with AJ was nevertheless sizzling… leading a whole-load of observers (us included!) to come to the natural conclusion that the duo are definitely more than just good friends (surely no one can fake that intense level of physical attraction).

Afterwards, 30-year-old Mollie paid a heartfelt tribute to AJ, 22.

She said: “AJ, you have been just incredible and you have been my hero for the last couple of months so thank you so much. I couldn’t have done any of it without you.”

AJ responded with an equally gushing: “I want to say thank you so much for being in training and literally spending all the time working so hard and always willing to try everything and performing every single night as if it’s your last.”

And they also quickly both took to Instagram to compliment on another, with Ms King stating: “AJ, I don’t even know where to begin… I have felt like the luckiest girl in the world being able to dance in your arms every Saturday night.”

Mr Pritchard himself posted: ‘Thank you Mollie. You have be outstanding throughout this journey, every performance has become a cherished memory that will stay with me for the rest of my life.

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are a STAR.’

Well, if that’s not reason enough for them to go off and set a date and get married and have lots of babies… we don’t know what is.
