BBC Strictly Come Dancing stars Tyler West and Molly Rainford have sparked romance rumours. The pair have triggered speculation as they’re spotted cosying up in a bar after a tour show. Tyler, who is dancing with Dianne Buswell on the Strictly Come Dancing live arena tour, which kicked off in Birmingham last week, was seen cosying up to Molly, who is dancing with pro Carlos Gu. The Sun newspaper has published snaps of the pair looking close in a bar after a live show this week.
But a source close to Molly insisted they are “just friends”. A Strictly insider said: “Everyone on the show is talking about how flirty the pair are. They’re both young and single and have really hit it off and so it feels like romance is on the cards. “They always seem to be smiling and having a laugh. Tyler is well known on set for his banter and friendly nature and has definitely impressed Molly with his sense of humour.” Reigning Strictly Come Dancing champion Hamza Yassin and his partner Jowita Przystal will also be performing on the tour, as will Fleur East and Vito Coppola.
Other stars include Will Mellor and Nancy Xu, while Helen Skelton will dance with Kai Widdrington during the live tour, having been partnered with Gorka Marquez during the BBC One competition. Judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Anton Du Beke – who is part of the tour for the first time, will be joined by Janette Manrara as host. The live show visits venues including Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena, Leeds’s First Direct Arena, the AO Arena in Manchester and Newcastle’s Utilita Arena after it started in Brum at the Utilita Arena last week. Strictly Come Dancing Live! is running from January 20 to February 12, with 32 shows across the UK.
