Strictly Come Dancing fans are convinced that there’s some underlying tension between Greg Wise and Karen Hauer.
The pair became the latest couple to be eliminated from the BBC competition, but many viewers reckon there’s no love lost between them.
Greg had taken on Loose Women star Judi Love in the dreaded dance off, but when three out of the four judges chose to save Judi, Greg realised his time was up.
He’d danced a rather energetic Samba to hit song Macarena, and admitted he was “very nervous” about performing the routine.
When asked by host Tess Daly if he will keep dancing, actor Greg replied hesitantly: “Erm, yes…”
He added: “I’ve had an amazing time, I feel unbelievably privileged, so thank you all for having me.”
But he failed to thank his partner Karen on the dance floor – instead only mentioning her in his VT.
Karen, 39, then said: “It’s been a blast. Thank you for the amazing lunches. Thanks so much for the quality of work. Thanks for being an amazing student.

“I really enjoyed our moments in the classroom and just having fun with you.”
Appearing to ask for assurance, she then turned to father-of-two Greg and said: “I hope you have too.”
Tess then asked the actor: “Greg, have you found a friend for life in Karen?” to which he mumbled: “Yeah, yeah yeah… Well, someone who eats my food.”
Viewers picked up on his response immediately and took to Twitter to comment.
“Friend for life? Greg will never see Karen again #StrictlyComeDancing #Strictly #SCD,” one person posted.
Another tweeted: “Thank the Lord, Greg has gone. Have a feeling Karen is relieved #Strictly.”
A third person added: “I get the vibe that Karen isn’t actually too keen on Greg #strictly.”
And a fourth said: “Greg wants out. I think Karen thought she would be in longer. Notice he made a point at saying she was kind repeatedly. Interesting soundbite. #SCD #Strictly.”

Someone else claimed: “Karen and Greg have mentally checked out already #Strictly.”
Others accused Karen of purposely choosing the Samba, knowing that it might not be the best dance for Greg.
“I take it Karen wanted to go home early from Strictly giving Greg that dance #Strictly,” one said.
Another wrote: “Karen knows *exactly* what she’s doing with giving Greg a song like Macarena on a dance he’d struggle with #Strictly.”
Someone else claimed: ““Not sure even Karen wants to win this dance off… #Strictly.”
Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturdays on BBC One with results shows on Sunday night.
