A source said: ‘Everyone is talking about the spark flying between AJ and Kai backstage. Whenever they are together it is very emotional and intense.

‘They are both single and have really hit it off and everyone on the show is saying it is only a matter of time.

‘They’re always laughing and flirting – romance is 100 percent on the cards. Kai is totally like AJ. He has a lot of pranks and that too has been blown away by him.’

Representatives for AJ and Kai have been contacted by MailOnline for a comment.
