STRICTLY Come Dancing viewers went into meltdown during Musicals Week after AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington almost kissed AGAIN despite an 'awkward' VT.
The couple have been dogged by romance rumours throughout this year's series, and almost shared a kiss at the end of their sizzling Argentine Tango a few weeks ago.
Tonight, the couple opened Musicals Week with a romantic Waltz to Edelweiss from The Sound of Music.
In the VT leading up to the routine, AJ and Kai danced on a hill with the London skyline behind them.
Kai suggested AJ kiss him and she replied: "Kai, I'm not going to kiss ya!"
Some viewers found the moment cringe-worthy, with one writing on Twitter: "Sorry I have just died of awkwardness from the Kai/AJ kiss VT, future tweets not my own, instead those of my ghost."
Another added: "They’re OBSESSED with the prospect of an AJ and Kai kiss."
However, once they had danced their romantic Waltz, there was a moment where they shared a lingering look, and viewers were convinced they wanted to smooch after all.
Taking to Twitter, one Strictly viewer wrote: "I thought AJ was going to kiss Kai at the end!!"
Another added: "Beautiful from AJ and Kai. Also, bit of lips twitching at the end… yeah, definitely close to a kiss."
