Kevin Clifton was confronted with an awkward question about his new girlfriend Stacey Dooley, but managed to deftly swerve answering.
It's the first sighting of the dance professional since Stacey's ex-boyfriend Sam Tucknott revealed the pair were dating following their Strictly Come Dancing win.
On his way back from rehearsals Kevin, 36, was all smiles as he walked back to his hotel alongside fellow performers.
He was more than happy to say that everything with rehearsals was going "great" in the Mail Online video.
However he failed to offer a response when he was asked "will Stacey be making an appearance?" at his Burn the Floor show.
His appearance marks the first time he has emerged since Sam claimed that his ex Stacey hadmoved on with Kevin.
He alleges to have found a receipt for cupcakes Stacey sent to Kevin on the opening night of his new show in Glasgow.
And on April 1, Sam says he discovered a text sent to Stacey by Kevin which read, "I love you."
Kevin, who has gone through three divorces after splitting from fellow pro Karen Clifton in 2017, has yet to confirm or deny the claims.
Sam added: "I just know that he is a slippery snake – a proper rat. To have that relationship where you are best buddies, but then you start going cold because you start fancying their girlfriend – I hold no respect for him whatsoever."
But Stacey – who apparently insists nothing happened between her and Kevin while she was still with Sam – has said there are "two sides to every story.""Anyone with any adult life experience knows there are 2 sides to every story," she tweeted.
"I haven’t got the time or energy to correct some of the utter nonsense I’ve read on here.
"Re Sam, I loved him v much and only wish him happiness and success going forward."
