Tearful Strictly pro Katya Jones admitted that she wanted to kiss Mike Bushell - almost a year after kissgate.

Katya was left incredibly emotional tonight after she and BBC presenter Mike wowed the judges with their performance tonight.

After receiving a nine from judge Motsi Mabuse, Katya couldn't contain the tears as they hugged tightly.

Mike asked in shock: "Is this a dream?"

Meanwhile an inconsolable Katya was asked by Claudia Winkleman if she was alright, prompting Mike to kiss her on the cheek.

Grabbing him around the neck, she squealed: "I want to kiss him so much! He worked so hard!""

And fans couldn't believe what she had just said.

One tweeted: "Did Katya just say she wanted to kiss him?!! #notAgain!!! #Strictly."
