Strictly’s AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington exited their It Take Two performance separately on Wednesday night.
The professional dancer, 26, and TV host, 33, are partners in this year’s series and Kai told AJ he “loves her so much” on Saturday’s show, following rumors of romance.
AJ looked effortlessly stylish as she stepped out in a multicolored striped jumpsuit that she paired with a long brown leather jacket.
Romance: Strictly’s AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington left their It Take Two performance separately on Wednesday… after the pro said ‘I love you so much’ during their last dance
She completed the look with comfortable black sneakers and carried all her essentials in a large black bag.
Meanwhile, Kai was nowhere to be seen and left the studios separately.
Last week, it was claimed that during their grueling hours of training together, the pair grew closer and “really clicked” before hearing her tell her he loves her on the show.
Each week, the show releases the “secret microphone” audio that reveals what the contestants are saying to each other on the dance floor.

Close: The professional dancer, 26, and the TV host, 33, are partners on this year’s series and Kai told AJ he “loves her so much” on last Saturday’s show, following rumors of romance.
Because of Dave Arch and his orchestra, viewers can’t hear it in real time.
In a clip shared to BBC’s Strictly Instagram, Kai can be heard praising AJ for her efforts after their The Bodyguard-inspired American Smooth on Saturday.
You could hear him say, ‘Aww, I love you! I love you so much!’
It comes after a source told The Sun that “the sparks are flying between the couple” and that “romance is 100 percent on the map.”

Kai is single after splitting from his dancer girlfriend of five years Giulia Dotta, 29, earlier this summer.
Meanwhile, AJ recently said she has tried dating apps unsuccessfully after struggling to find a partner, adding, “I just don’t meet anyone other than TV shows I’ve done.”
A source said: “Everyone backstage is talking about the sparks flying between AJ and Kai. It is very passionate and intense when they are together.

“They’re both single and really got along and everyone on the show says it’s only a matter of time.
“They’re always laughing and flirting — romance is 100 percent on the cards. Kai is totally AJ’s type. He has a lot of chatter and he’s blown away by her too.’
Representatives of AJ and Kai have been contacted by MailOnline for comment.
It comes after AJ posted a photo of Kai’s six-pack on social media on Friday as they rehearsed at the last minute.
The pair delivered another incredible performance on Saturday night’s Movie Week show.
AJ shone in a blue and silver dress as she took to the floor for the incredible dance and impressed the judges, with Motsi and Shirley giving her a standing ovation.
Motsi said after the dance: ‘I was really moved, there was so much pure quality, what a beautiful dance, congratulations.’
Shirley added: “I really felt the love story. You are definitely one to watch,” while Craig said, “That was spectacular, I can’t believe you’ve never danced before!”

An emotional AJ burst into tears after the dance, sharing how she’d been feeling a lot of “self-doubt” this week and that she didn’t want to let Kai down.
She said, “I’m feeling emotional because, yeah… it’s been… I’ve been doubting myself a bit this week and I just wanted to get it right.
“I didn’t want to disappoint anyone, especially Kai because it’s such a beautiful dance, so I just wanted to do it justice.”
Hostess Claudia Winkleman told her, “You’ve done so beautifully, really.”

Kai put his arm around her to comfort her as the crowd applauded.
The pair scored a high 35 for the dance, with nines from every judge except Craig.
Kai broke up with his long-term girlfriend Giulia – who is Italian – earlier this year.
The pair worked together on Ireland’s Dancing With The Stars, which has already run for four series.

A source told The Mirror at the time: “Signing up with Strictly is like a death sentence for almost any relationship.”
Friends added that they thought Kai and Giulia would eventually get married and have children.
Last year, Kai joked about proposing on live TV, saying, “If I proposed in this setting, she would absolutely kill me.”
Kai now lives with fellow Strictly dancing hunk Giovanni Pernice, 30, who recently began dating Maura Higgins from Love Island.
Kai appeared in Britain’s Got Talent in 2012 at the age of 16, reaching the final.
