Strictly dancers play partner games
The professional dancers on 'Strictly Come Dancing' play a game to guess who they will end up with on the show before their partners are announced
The 'Strictly Come Dancing' dancers play a game to guess who they will end up with on the show.
Professional dancer Pasha Kovalev admits the stars like to try to work out who they might end up partnering on the BBC One show and who will end up as a couple ahead of performing some saucy dance routines with their partners.
He said: "When you put any two young people together and they are coming out and dancing these romantic or sexy routines, people are going to read more into it.
"It's not always without foundation either.
"There are lots of celebrities and pro dancers on 'Strictly' that have gone on to become girl and boyfriend.
"Trying to work out which couples will emerge before it's officially announced is all part of the theatre of such television shows."
Pasha has previously been the victim of romance rumours when he was partnered with Girls Aloud beauty Kimberley Walsh and 'Waterloo Road' star Chelsee Healey - but he insists nothing ever happened with the stunners.
In his autobiography 'Pasha: My Story', he states: "There was some speculation about whether or not a romance was developing between Kimberley and me.
"But that kind of relationship wasn't on the cards.
"There was also all this expectation at home that something romantic was going to happen with me and Chelsee.
"But I was not single."
