“I’m just sad I’m not teaching you a new dance in the morning unless we could just dance together for fun and giggles,” he concluded.
During their time on the show, the pair were queried about their relationship after he was pictured outside her home.
The former dancing duo, who are both single, have continuously insisted they are no more than friends.
Speaking to Hello! Magazine together, Neil said: “There’s nothing on our minds but the show – we don’t have time to think about anything else.
“I’m single but I haven’t even thought about dating. Coming out of a long-term relationship I’m just focusing on Strictly.”
Strictly Come Dancing continues this Saturday at 7pm on ITV.
