STRICTLY Come Dancing’s Mollie King and AJ Pritchard dropped a HUGE hint about their secret romance as they shared an intimate backstage embrace last night.

The pair are rumoured to have struck up a relationship during their time on the show – and they looked closer than ever as the singer jumped into her partner’s arms after their performance.

Mollie, 30, and AJ, 22, wowed fans with a Sound of Music-themed dance, with the singer dressing up as Julie Andrews’ character Maria.

After their performance, they ran backstage and Mollie was seen leaping into AJ’s arms for a big hug.

He slid his arms around her waist and they held each other tight, before letting go and chatting animatedly about their routine.

It comes just a day after they were pictured walking through London with their arms wrapped around each other.

They cuddled up as they enjoyed a coffee break during rehearsals for the hit BBC show.

The pair were all smiles as they linked arms as they strolled down the street, and at one stage, AJ, placed his hand on the small of her back as she checked her phone.

Mollie recently insisted the pair were “just friends” but they’re getting very close if these new pictures are anything to go by.

The pair first sparked romance rumours when they had a cosy night in to watch the first Strictly show together.

Mollie, 30, recently addressed the rumours and said: “I think there’s always some kind of romance rumour so it didn’t surprise me but I hardly even know him well so far, so there’s no truth in that.

“But he’s such a sweet heart and obviously he is a beautiful boy so I’m very lucky.”

Meanwhile, Joe McFadden dismissed rumours of romance with Mollie saying he’s “too tired” for a relationship.

The Holby City star was recently linked with the pretty singer after they were spotted getting friendly at the launch of the BBC show back in August.

Singleton Joe said: “I found it very flattering that anyone would even entertain that idea but its absolute nonsense.

“Nope, that’s not on the cards for me on this show – certainly not.”
