Since AJ Odudu and her Strictly Come Dancing dance partner Kai Widdrington were partnered up together for the competition, the pair's on-screen chemistry has been undeniable – and they have continued to spark rumours of a romance between them throughout the series.
But after presenter AJ, 33, admitted "nothing will top" meeting her partner Kai, 26, for the first time, there now seems to be a change of heart as body language expert Judi James has said their flirting signals are "no longer as visible" on the dancefloor.
She added that their signals of flirting were much higher a few weeks ago, but they have now "cooled off" as they approach Strictly's final.
"The body language signals from this couple are now considerably cooler off the dancefloor than they were a couple of weeks ago," she said.
"Last week their flirt signals were suddenly invisible to both the naked eye and closer inspection."
After AJ and Kai waltzed to the Sound of Music's Edelweiss, Judi picked up on that the pair tried to approach another "almost kiss moment".
She continued: "At the end of their stunning routine, they did try to revisit the ‘Almost kiss’ moment that caused so many rumours the last time they did it.
"This time though, as AJ looked up at Kai adoringly he quickly wrinkled his nose and did a full-facial wince."
The expert then spoke about the TV star showing emotion as she spoke to host Claudia Winkleman: "AJ was very emotional talking to Claudia, tearing up surprisingly as she thanked the fans for voting.
"Kai sounded very professionally supportive, calling her 'this girl’ rather than ‘AJ’ and saying she is a ‘pleasure’ to be with, suggesting that if there is a romance between these two, they might have decided to cool any signals of it as they work through to the final."

It comes after AJ looked back on the time she and Kai first crossed paths before they were partnered up for the show.
Speaking on The One Show, the star shared: "Oh my gosh, all of it but I think nothing will ever top meeting Kai for the first time, us just getting on like a house on fire."
AJ went on to add that the first time she danced with Kai – the Jive to Gold Dust – there was "no feeling like it" and described it as "amazing".
While the pair are yet to confirm whether there is a romance between them, they haven't denied anything so far.
AJ and Kai were previously grilled on the speculation following their steamy Argentine Tango on It Takes Two by host Rylan Clark, who said: "The passion during this routine set the rumour mill going. Can we settle a few scores here, please? I have known AJ for many years, I know she can't lie to me."
Kai responded: "If people react like this it means we're doing something right, because that's the way the dance should be danced. It was a very passionate song, a real fiery piece and very intimate. And that is the characterisation of Argentine Tango.”
He added: "So if people want to think that, then great… but we were just doing our job and [AJ] did a great job."
