Zara was all smiles for the camera as she placed her hands on her dance partner Graziano’s chest, who posed looking away from the lens.
The professional dancer looked every inch a smart gentleman in a dark grey suit worn over a light-coloured rollneck top.
As part of their OK! Magazine shoot, the pair discussed their Strictly Come Dancing journey together so far.
Zara revealed that in order to achieve her best, she has been spending up to 12 hours in rehearsals.
She spilled: “For a complete novice non-dancer like me, it’s very intense to try and get something as perfect as you possibly can.

“I get to training just before 8am, we grab something really quick for lunch and keep going until sometimes 6, 8, 9pm. I go to sleep and repeat the next day. This is my life at the moment.”
Lengthy days in the training room have been known to take a toll on relationships in the past, however Zara says boyfriend Sam Thompson has been her biggest support.
She added: “You have to put the hours into training. You have to be really dedicated.
“Even when I get home, I’m watching my routine over and over again. Sam is amazing, he literally watches with me and I show him videos from the day.”
As for Graziano, 29, his wife Giada Lini is also a professional dancer and is busy training celebrities in Italy.
There doesn’t seem to be a hint of jealously on either sides, as Graziano revealed Zara speaks to his wife more than he does.
He spilled: “She’s part of my family. I think she sends more messages to my wife than me.”
This weekend, the pair will perform an American Smooth to Can’t Fight The Moonlight by LeAnn Rimes.
Strictly Come Dancing returns on October 21 at 6:40PM on BBC One.
