Kelvin Fletcher of Strictly admitted that he wants viewers to believe that he is in love with his professional dancer partner, Oti Mabuse, when teasing the "curse" of the program.
The star from Emmerdale (35 years old) and his partner (29 years old) already delighted the fans with a very steamy samba during their first live performance, where they took first places in the leaderboard last week.
Kelvin admitted that part of the show's charms is guessing if it's a romance between celebrities and professional partners.

During an interview with the Sun, Kelvin revealed that spending long hours in close proximity leaves fans wondering if there is romantic chemistry between the dance couples.
He revealed: "Why are we still watching strictly? You have these people and they must look so majestic, beautiful and endearing, and the story looks like "Oh, something is going on there."
"Two strangers spend ten hours a day together, connected by a hip, naturally touching and very close – nose to nose. There are many signals of what people will be looking at.
"If you didn't buy it, something is missing. That's why I absolutely expect and hope that people will watch me and Oti and see any narrative – regardless of whether we are in love – I want people to believe it. "
Loved-up: He also joked that if there was something noticeable between him and Oti, his four-year-old wife Liz Marsland would be the first person to pull him into it.

However, he insisted that they be happily married, and she already saw her kissing other women because of her acting career.
Last week, the former soap star showed her stunning hip movements in Celia Cruz's La Vida Es Un Carnaval.
The dance made both the audience and the evaluation committee go crazy, and Motsi Mabuse spurted: "Aren't we glad you came in? Seriously, you have good assets, I deal with the spine, hip rotation, soaking in your body, rhythm that was so funny that you are strong, I loved it.

The pair's sensational debut was also reflected in the results, with an amazing 32 points out of 40.
This weekend, Oti and Kelvin will slow down thanks to the waltz Burt Bacharach needs.
