Could things be hotting up between the pair, then?

Thom has made no secret of the fact he fancies Iveta and the 29-year-old is said to be smitten with his dance partner.

Now, Iveta has revealed the feeling is mutual, describing Thom as "gorgeous" before adding he is the "best dance match she has ever had" on the show.

No wonder they were leaning in for a smooch at the end of their first live dance!

But before we all go out looking for hats, Iveta has said the pair are too busy focusing on dancing to be getting involved with each other at the moment.

Complimenting Thom, the Lithuanian beauty said things were going well with the Strictly star thanks to him being "a hard worker" and "dedicated" to his dances.

Last weekend, Thom and Iveta managed to avoid elimination thanks to their energetic salsa routine.

First to leave the show was MasterChef star Gregg Wallace and his partner Aliona Vilani after they failed to beat Mrs Brown's Boys star Jennifer Gibney and Tristan MacManus in the dance off.

Joint leaders on the night were EastEnders actor Jake Wood - who received plenty of praise for his impressive Cuban salsa - and singer Pixie Lott thanks to her beautiful waltz with professional partner Trent Whiddon.
