The couple, who left fans shocked after being voted off the dancing show in the semi-final, have been rumoured to be secretly dating.
And fans are even more convinced by their chemistry after a snap emerged of them holding hands in a Strictly reunion photo ahead of the live final this weekend.
Strictly professional dancer Chloe Hewitt took to Twitter to share a group photo of this year’s contestants practicing for the dramatic final.
And sitting at the front of the group snap, Mollie and AJ beam as they’re seen holding hands surrounded by celebrities and contestants on the show.
The pair have always denied a romance and insisted they’re just friends and amid dating rumours, It Takes Two host Zoe Ball couldn’t help but question the pair over a potential romance.
Across the series the stars have been reported to have had a secret romance, with Tess Daly even suggesting they kissed in an earlier episode. While Mollie and AJ have continued to deny the claims, Monday night saw Zoe squeeze the big question in once more.

As Mollie cried over her Strictly montage, Zoe Ball asked her if she’d fallen in love. Mollie and AJ were caught off guard as she said: “So have you fallen in love…with dancing.”
The dancing pair completely avoided acknowledging the romance rumours, sticking to the dancing topic.
The rumours come amid claims that the pair have confirmed their relationship, just days after vowing that they were just friends.
“They have been seen kissing, canoodling and even snogging while training,” an insider reportedly told The Sun.
“It’s still very early days and they are not officially dating or in a relationship, but there’s a real chemistry and attraction between them.
“Everyone is talking about it backstage and they are desperate for them to become a couple.”
