CAROLINE Flack and Strictly dancer AJ Pritchard sparked talk of a new romance by getting close at the NTAs after-party.
The single stars were seen walking hand-in-hand through the venue at London’s O2 Arena having earlier been seen canoodling at the bar.
An onlooker said: “Caroline and AJ were the talk of the party. They were pretty open about it and didn’t seem to care who was looking.
“AJ was blatantly touching her bum and getting cosy.
“They had plenty of chemistry and were acting like a proper couple.”
The pair openly flirted in front of AJ’s Strictly co-stars including Karen Clifton, Neil and Katya Jones and Aljaz Skorjanec.
AJ, who is currently on the Strictly UK tour, was celebrating winning the Best Talent Show award, while Caroline needed cheering up after Love Island missed out on the Bruce Foryth Entertainment Award.
Caroline has been single since splitting from fiancé Andrew Brady last December.
AJ, who was linked with ex-Strictly dance partner Mollie King in 2017, has always kept fans guessing over his sexuality, telling The Sun he’s happy to keep it a secret.
