Daily Star TV gives you all the latest interviews and spoilers and Ed Gleave will send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Strictly Come Dancing might be drawing to a close – but 2021 has been an unforgettable year for the BBC One show.

Fans have witnessed plenty of memorable moments over the past 13 weeks, and sometimes things got rather steamy in the ballroom.

From racy dances to topless snaps, this year's celebs haven't just nabbed points from the judges – they've whipped up social media storms with their sexy antics.

In fact, some dancing duos left fans convinced that a secret romance was brewing behind the scenes when things got intimate on the dance floor.

To celebrate the end of the series, Daily Star has decided to round up some of the sexiest moments from this year's Strictly.

Adam Peaty and Katya Jones 'almost kiss'

Olympic swimmer Adam Peaty and Katya Jones sent pulses racing around the country during their sexy Argentine Tango routine.

The dancing duo had fans convinced that they "almost kissed" when they finished the dance – prompting theories that they'd fallen victim to the so-called "Strictly curse".

Adam and Russian dancer Katya performed to Tango in the Night by Fleetwood Mac, and they scored an impressive 32 points from the judges.

When the routine came to a close, Adam held Katya tightly – and their faces were just inches apart as they stared into each-other's eyes.

Some viewers even thought they heard him tell her "I love you", whilst some thought he said: "How did I do?"

However, Adam's girlfriend Eirinedd Munro suggested she wasn't worried about her man falling victim to the Strictly curse.

Adam and Eiri met on Tinder and have been dating since the start of last year – and they welcomed their baby boy George in September of that year.

Kai 'pats' AJ's bum after a dance

  • AJ Odudu 'frustrated and upset' at nightmare foot injury just before Strictly final

AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington have sent fans into a meltdown over the last 13 weeks – with many convinced that they've been secretly dating behind the scenes.

The pair have sparked romance rumours for a number of reasons – such as their sexy dances, calling each other pet names like "baby" and other seemingly flirtatious interactions.

Eagle-eyed viewers spotted one moment in particular during a dance where they saw Kai "patting her bottom" in front of the cameras.

The pair had been performing their Couple's Choice routine to Janelle Monáe's Make Me Feel – and when Kai hugged AJ, viewers saw him touch AJ's bum.

The pair have certainly flirted before, too, and Kai once suggested she kiss him during rehearsals.

AJ replied: "Kai, I'm not going to kiss you!"

At one point, host Claudia Winkleman even urged them to kiss, telling Kai: "If you want to kiss at any point now… come on Kai. Kai, it's the right time."

And Kai joked: "I know it is, we'll do it after the scores," to which AJ burst out laughing.

AJ and Kai 'nearly kiss'

  • Corrie's Victoria Ekanoye reveals she's part of a Whatsapp group chat with soap family

AJ and Kai danced a romantic American Smooth routine during Movie Week – and it's where they seemed to ignite the romance rumours in the first place.

Their dance was inspired by the Whitney Houston film, The Bodyguard, but for many it let slip some major clues about their relationship.

When their faces got incredibly close together at the end of the dance, viewers reckoned they were about to kiss.

What's more is that Strictly releases "secret mic" audio that allowed viewers to hear what the dancers are saying to each other on the dance floor.

  • Gemma Collins says her mum met an alien on the train and 'spoke to it telepathically'

Kai was heard whispering to AJ: "I love you! I love you so much!" – leading many to believe it was a confession of love.

Later on in the series, AJ said to Kai "sorry, baby", a rather intimate-sounding pet name.

Although AJ and Kai have played down ideas that they're dating, it hasn't stopped fans believing it's simply a cheeky lie.

When she was asked on another occasion about whether she was dating Kai, she joked: "Well, one thing that is definitely for sure is, we are doing a lot of dancing."

Adam and Tom's X-rated snap

  • Gemma Collins says her mum met an alien on the train and 'spoke to it telepathically'

Before Strictly kicked off back in September, Adam and McFly singer Tom Fletcher stripped naked for a spray tan – and it was caught on camera.

The two hunky celebs posed for a nude photo on Instagram, but the snap was too rude for the social media platform.

Gold medalist Adam appeared to be stark naked as he grinned from the pop-up spray tan booth, although it's clear that he was actually wearing a thin thong.

Singer Tom was taking the photo, and he was spotted covering up his private parts with a raised hand as he leant out of his own spray tan booth.

Both stars were also wearing hairnets on their heads during their tanning procedure.

That's because the photo went against Instagram's guidelines on "nudity and sexual activity".

Adam later revealed that they'd been slapped with the warning, saying: "Great, removed for sexual activity," with a laughing emoji.

Nikita's wardrobe malfunction

  • The One Show's Jermaine Jenas makes savage dig at Peter Crouch after engagement party

When dancing pro Nikita Kuzmin and Tilly Ramsay landed in the bottom two, things got a bit racy on the dancefloor.

Their Samba routine had failed to impress the judges on the Saturday at the end of November, so they had to perform the dance again during the results show on Sunday.

However, this time Nikita decided to whip off his brightly-coloured shirt for the performance – and he danced topless with Tilly.

It seemed like he was determined to pull out all the stops – even if it meant flaunting his abs for the cameras.

Unfortunately though, the shirt ended up getting caught in Nikita's microphone wire after he tried to toss it over his shoulder.

Nadiya's steamy calendar snap

  • EastEnders' Maisie Smith reveals emotional moment she shot final scenes in BBC soap

Blonde beauty Nadiya Bychkova wowed fans when she revealed her sexy calendar for 2022.

The professional dancer stripped down to a cream robe in one snap – and shot a sultry stare down the lens.

The Ukrainian stunner didn't appear to be wearing much else in the sizzling calendar snap – much to the delight of her swooning fans.

The model is no stranger to a sultry photoshoot either, because she previously appeared on the cover of Playboy Magazine in 2015 – the Ukrainian version of the outlet.

Teasing the calendar, she wrote: "2022 OFFICIAL CALENDAR IS HERE! Go and grab a copy. This calendar is exclusively made for you and not available anywhere else. You can also choose a hand signed version this time."
