Light a match and the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom would burst into flames these couples are so hot

It’s the sexiest show on TV and this year’s Strictly Come Dancing line-up has blown our minds.

There’s rugby player and model Thom Evans, Michelle Keegan‘s TV hunk fiancé Mark Wright, Caroline Flack, Pixie Lott, Blue’s Simon Webbe, Frankie Bridge from The Saturdays, Steve Backshall and more. Phew! We need a lie down on a cold, dark dancefloor… or something.

We can’t wait to see the glitz and glamour, raunchy routines and topless hunks. But if you can’t wait (we can’t!) that long, relax… we’ve got some sizzling hot Strictly moments for you to reminisce.

Remember the sizzling chemistry between Kara Tointon and Artem Chigvintsev? There was no denying they were doing the rumba on AND off the dancefloor (for four years) – then there was Ricky Whittle and Natalie Lowe.

Rumours were rife they grew close during the show and their performances were always overflowing with sexual tension.

Ricky gushed: ‘I absolutely love training with Nat. It’s the best part of my day. She’s amazing, she’s got everything, she has the whole package’ and Natalie cooed: ‘The energy that Ricky and I have is really special.’

Then there was Harry Judd, Ben Cohen and Austin Healey topless – pass us a cold flannel – and amazing new dancer Aljaž Skorjanec and Abbey Clancy. Their chemistry was so smoking hot Abbey was forced to deny she was having a fling!

‘I know what went on and he knows what went on, so it’s not like that, you’re just learning to dance,’ she said, when it was all over.

Well, they can’t blame us for jumping to conclusions when so many of them hook up together OFF the dancefloor.

Professional dancer Flavia Cacace dated Matt Di Angelo for three years and then married Jimi Mistry who she met on the show in 2010.

Brendan Cole was rumoured to have had an affair with newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky in 2004 and professional dancer Kristina Rhianoff dated Joe Calzaghe for four years.

So we can’t wait to see who’s got the sex factor (and who hasn’t) this year. More raunch, more romance, more sequins and more topless hunks… Yes please.
