Piers got straight down to it and addressed the rumours, as he asked Ranvir: "I am asking you directly has there been any hanky panky?"

Bemused, Ranvir replied: "No of course not – no there hasn't, there really hasn't. I think it's just that we…he's very much about the energy of the performance.

"It's so much more than just learning the steps or learning the routine or any of those things and also because I'm a total beginner so really, I'm never gong to be able to do the steps that Maisie does that's the truth of the matter – she's an incredible dancer."

But Susanna cut in to boost her colleagues confidence and said: "You're an incredible dancer Ranvir."

Head judge Shirley Ballas told the couple they'd got her all hot under the collar.

Later, speaking on Lorraine, Shirley was quick to praise the electricity in the air during their steamy performance.

"There was a sensuality about the female movement, there was something special in the chemistry between the two of them."
