Their VERY raunchy routines have been setting tongues wagging on Strictly Come Dancing, as rumours of a backstage romance started doing the rounds this week.
But now Simon Webbe has spoken out to DENY that there’s anything going on between him and Kristina ‘Banned From Dancing With Married Men’ Rihanoff.
Insisting that their relationship is strictly professional (see what we did there), the Blue star, 36, has said that after rehearsals the pair DO NOT HANG OUT, OKAY?
He told Metro: “All I can say is that we talk, dance and we high five and go our separate ways until the next day.”
Yeah, yeah, we totally believe you, Si.
The popstar was forced to speak out about last week’s routine attracted a lot of criticism for basically being way, way too raunchy.
He added: “It’s the rumba. It’s one of the most sexual dances that there is.
“I was just concentrating on the moves. Sorry if it offended anyone. For me, I thought the choreography was amazing.”
While WE thought that it was pretty darn good, others viewers weren’t as impressed as the pair ended up in the bottom two and in the dance-off.
The fact that they only scraped through to this weekend may have had something to do with all the hoo-hah surrounding their personal lives.
Kristina has reportedly been told to STAY AWAY FROM THE MARRIED CONTESTANTS after being linked to last year’s Ben Cohen.
And Simon’s ex has recently revealed that she caught him ‘sexing’ (yes, we said ‘sexting’) with SIX other women during their three-year relationship.
Phew – where do they get the energy?!
Anyway, we reckon a nice gentle waltz might be just the ticket this week, yeah, guys?
