Strictly fans swoon over Nigel and Katya’s ‘chemistry’ after kiss in ‘hot’ dance

Strictly Come Dancing fans couldn't help but swoon over Nigel Harman and Katya Jones after their Viennese Waltz on Saturday night (September 30).

Nigel and Katya kicked off the show last week to an incredible start – and it looks like they're keeping up appearances into week two. Although head judge Shirley Ballas wasn't quite as impressed with their performance.

But while the duo didn't quite win over Shirley on the judging panel, viewers at home were left in awe over their dance. The pair kicked off their routine with a peck on the cheek as they told a story of romance.

Dancing to Stephen Sanchez's Until I Found You, the duo got a lot of people talking about their chemistry after the incredibly cosy performance. Taking to X, formerly Twitter, one user wrote: "Nigel and Katya gave me goosebumps."

Another person said: "Nigel and Katya's chemistry is off the scale." A third person wrote: "Nigel and Katya are winning, calling it now. That was HOT."

The steamy performance had viewers swooning over the pair, with Nigel already being dubbed an early winner, but they were hit with a lot of stern feedback. So much so, that Craig called out Shirley for her comments.

She initially praised his "connection" with Katya, but immediately explained that his footwork was incorrect. However she told him that there was "Too much bopping up and down and too many technical errors".

As the room filled with boos she then hit back: "Well you might learn something so hold on a minute". She then told Nigel she believes he could be a great dancer, but wants him to "concentrate a little bit".

It was made quite clear that she shocked everyone when Craig – who famously gives the harshest comments – turned and said: "You're being very very picky down there. Week two. Picky, picky, picky."

Craig threw his support behind Nigel and branded him "fantastic", while Motsi praised his ability to tell a story through his performance. He ultimately landed a score of 27 after getting three 7s and one 6 from Shirley.

Strictly's results show will air on Sunday night.

Strictly Come Dancing continues tomorrow night.
