The insider added: “Over the years lots of Strictly stars have grown close and it usually comes out straight away.

“AJ and Daisy really hit it off when they were both on the show even though they weren’t dancing together.”

Daisy has denied reports of a relationship with AJ.

AJ is currently loved-up with his girlfriend Abbie Quinnen, and is partnered up with Saffron Barker on this series of Strictly.

During a recent appearance on Good Morning Britain, Piers Morgan shocked viewers after asking AJ and Saffron had slept together.

He asked: "Are you two at it yet like all the Strictly couples?

"You all do it sooner or later. Don't tell me you haven't tried."

Both AJ and Saffron shook their heads and exclaimed "No!" before AJ said: "I have a girlfriend. She is a hot blonde also.

"It's the profession Piers, so if you want to make it work you do 12-hour days."
