Strictly’s Molly Rainford has revealed that her professional partner Carlos Gu has banned her from dating on the show.
The star, 21, said Carlos, 28, told her she shouldn’t “miss a single rehearsal to go on dates” and that she “has no time for romance.”
It comes after reports that she had grown close to both Nikita Kuzmin and Tyler West during her time on the show thus far.
Oh no! Strictly’s Molly Rainford has revealed that her professional partner Carlos Gu has banned her from dating on the show
She said the mirror: “Carlos told me, “You can’t skip rehearsals to go on dates.”
“So I don’t have time for romance. Tyler is a sweet boy. We all get along very well. But we’re just training and working hard.’
It comes after Molly brushed aside rumors of a behind-the-scenes romance earlier this week after being linked to two different stars on the BBC show.
Rules: The star, 21, said Carlos, 28, said she ‘shouldn’t miss a single rehearsal to go on dates’ and that she has ‘no time for romance’
In an exclusive MailOnline conversation with her dance partner Carlos, the CBBC star said this year’s lineup was “very dull” due to backstage passion, following reports that she had developed a close bond with Nikita and Tyler.
Molly, who will be dancing the rumba this weekend, also hinted that their take on the quintessentially romantic dance will be “more emotional than sexy,” paying tribute to relationships with loved ones.
Asked about the infamous Strictly curse, Molly told MailOnline: “It’s so funny because everyone is asking ‘oh what’s the gossip? Who doesn’t get along with it” and I’ll be honest, it’s all they say about the Strictly family, we all get along really well.
Claims: It comes after Molly was rumored to have been dating Strictly pro Nikita Kuzmin (pictured) after the couple was pictured putting on a cozy showing at the National Television Awards
‘I do have a dressing room, that’s Fleur, she’s become like a big sister. I think because she’s done the bottom two a few times, we have each other to talk it out and move on together, which is nice.”
“I just think it’s so random, I like how people try to find it when it doesn’t happen, it’s pretty funny, I think maybe because we get along so well that they mistake it for something else, but it’s true that everyone is really really good friends.’
When the former Britain’s Got Talent star was keen on the prospect of a behind-the-scenes romance, he added: ‘No! In that respect we are a very boring series!’

After avoiding elimination in last week’s dance-off, Molly and Carlos take to the floor on Saturday with a rumba to Whitney Houston’s All The Man That I Need.
Discussing how the training for the show had gone, she said, “The training is going well. It’s definitely harder than I thought it would be the rhumba. I think it’s a little sneaky because it’s slow.”
While the rumba previously earned the title The Dance Of Love, both Molly and Carlos explained that their routine will be an ode to emotional relationships over complete passion.
Verdict: It comes after Molly brushed aside rumors of a behind-the-scenes romance earlier this week after being linked to the two different stars on the BBC show
“It’s kind of funny, but obviously Carlo has been trying to explain to me with dance what to think about, you’re that character, it’s not about Molly and Carlos, so I’m really trying to use my acting experience to help me get over that initial awkwardness,” she said.
“We kind of took this from a certain angle, it doesn’t have to be about a relationship in that sense, it’s about your relationship with your mom, your dad, your parent, your sibling, whoever much to you means a best friend, so we’re trying to look at it from that angle.’
Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday at 6:55pm on BBC One and iPlayer. Nova Jones is available on BBC iPlayer and airs Saturdays at 9.05am on BBC Two.
Coming soon: Molly, who will be dancing the rumba this weekend, also hinted that their take on the quintessentially romantic dance will be “more emotional than sexy.”
