STRICTLY’S Anton Du Beke and Nadiya Bychkova raised a few eyebrows with their flirty behaviour during the National Television Awards.
The pro dancers, who have become good pals, looked closer than ever.
Anton, dubbed the King of Ballroom, even kissed Nadiya’s cheek for a snap taken by a fan on Tuesday night.
Another shot taken as they went on stage with Strictly pals to collect the Best Talent Show prize seemed to show his hand grazing her dress.
One onlooker told me: “Anton and Nadiya were in high spirits and clearly having a great night. They were both absolutely thrilled that Strictly won their category and when they went up on stage to collect the award, they looked very close.
“At another point during the night, Anton planted a kiss on Nadiya’s cheek and gave her a hug. It got some attention from fans, as they are not known to be particularly close, but they have known each other for years.
“It seems they’ve got a lot closer recently.”
Nadiya was linked to her dance partner, ex-England goalkeeper David James, on last year’s show. Her husband is fellow dancer Sergey Konovaltsev, while Anton got married to Hannah Summers in 2017.
Alhough his high jinks with Nadiya seemed innocent, he might have some explaining to do with Strictly bosses after he let slip a secret about this year’s series. He said: “I hope it’s me and Jamie Laing,” before quickly adding: “That’s if they ask him back.”
Made In Chelsea’s Jamie was paired with Oti Mabuse before he was forced to pull out last year with a painful foot injury.
He was replaced by Kelvin Fletcher, who went on to win with Oti.
But it looks like the reality TV star might be getting a second chance on the dancefloor.
