Fans have urged the Strictly Come Dancing stars to take the next step in their relationship and “kiss” as speculation around their romance heats up.
Mollie King and AJ Pritchard sparked rumours of a secret liaison on the BBC dance series thanks to their intense chemistry on, and off, the dance floor.
Following their dramatic exit on Sunday, the Saturdays singer took to social media to thank AJ for being “magical”.
She wrote: “AJ, I don’t even know where to begin… I have felt like the luckiest girl in the world being able to dance in your arms every Saturday night.
“I can’t even begin to thank you enough for everything you have done… You are absolutely magical.
But fans quickly begged her to “kiss” her co-dancer, while some asked to be “bridesmaid” or “God Mother” to their babies.

The news comes as odds shot up that the duo will go public with their relationship, as fans wait for them to admit that they’re an item.
Bookmakers Coral have even placed odds at 1-4 that they’ll announce they are dating, and 6-1 that they’ll get engaged in 2018.
Spokesman Harry Aitkenhead said: “You can almost see the sparks flying between the pair with their dancing. “We think it is only a matter of time before she confirms that they are now a couple.”
And AJ, 23, recently admitted he’ll be devastated that he’ll no longer be training with the Saturdays singer every day.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, he said: “We will be friends for life, 100 per cent.
“She has been an amazing partner. We have so much fun in the training room, we don’t ever want that to end. I’ll definitely be heartbroken at the end of this because it’s such a fantastic year and it’s all going so well. I wouldn’t change a thing.
