Gorka Marquez, 31, and Katie McGlynn, 28, were saved by the judges last weekend following a dance-off against Nina Wadia and Neil Jones. After the duo performed again, many Strictly Come Dancing viewers took to social media to suggest they might not be getting along behind-the-scenes.

Twitter user Corin wrote: “Just catching up on tonight’s Strictly… was it just me who thought Gorka & Katie looked like they don’t get on? #strictly.”

She went on to claim that the professional dancer “looked really annoyed” while Katie “was barely clapping”.

“I thought they seemed a bit off with each other last week but this week it was really obvious,” the Twitter user added.

Mervyn Smith and Mrs added: “Totally agree. I personally think she has quite a lot to say behind the scenes.”

Sasha Holly commented: “Gorka and Katie DO NOT like each other #Strictly.”

After making it through to movie week on Sunday, Gorka hit back at the rumours.

The dancer shared two pictures of him and Katie seemingly in high spirits behind-the-scenes in clothes they wore for their Jive routine.

In view of his 662,000 followers, Gorka began his post telling fans that the dance-off was “intense”.

He went on to say of Nina and Neil: “Sorry to see @mr_njonesofficial and @nina.wadia leave, they had so much to give to the show.”

The dancer went on to thank their fans for supporting and voting for them.

“We’ll keep working hard and giving our best,” he continued.

Gorka concluded his post, writing: “And to those who think that we aren’t getting on keep thinking it,” followed by a thumbs up and crying with laughter emojis.

On the same night, the ex Coronation Street star told her Instagram fans that her dance companion was the “best partner”.

In response, he said: “Partner!!! I am so proud of you!! LFG THIS WEEK!!”

Gorka’s wife-to-be Gemma Atkinson also penned: “On to the next one! C’mon!”(sic)
