Strictly Come Dancing fans were left utterly thrilled on Tuesday, as show bosses unveiled the official hidden microphone recordings from the weekend's show.
In amongst the clips was an adorable exchange between Giovanni Pernice and EastEnders star Rose Ayling-Ellis, as he sweetly told her: "I love you."
During a clip at the end of their couple's choice dance to Symphony by Clean Bandit, Rose could be seen giving Giovanni a hug as they caught their breath after the energetic number, which scored an incredible 39 overall.
The sweet exchange was met with an exhilarated grin from Rose as the dance partners headed over to the judges for their comments.
Elsewhere in the hidden microphone clip, AJ Odudu could be heard calling her partner Kai Widdrington "baby", as she lay on the floor following a drop.
AJ had slipped on her dress during the routine, with judge Anton Du Beke branding the dance "stiff" due to the mishap.
Apparently realising what had happened after the dance ended, Kai could be heard telling AJ: "Well done!" as she said: "Sorry, baby."
It comes as romance rumours are heating up between the pair – who are both currently single – after AJ's nephew begged them to kiss live on the show during Halloween week.
Kai promised he would "after the results", and treated his partner to a chaste kiss on the hand.
That wasn't the only nickname that abounded in the leaked recordings, as Great British Bake Off star John Whaite dubbed his partner Johannes Radebe a "rascal".
Their energetic Samba number was well underway as John called to him: "Come here, you rascal!"
BBC Breakfast's Dan Walker had a rather more reserved conversation with his partner Nadiya Bychkova after their American Smooth routine, as she said: "Hello", and Dan responded with: "Hi."
The pair proceeded to ask each other how they were, as Nadiya told Dan: "Well done. Proud of you!"
Fans immediately flocked to the comments section to show their appreciation for the leaked recordings, as one posted: "'SORRY BABY' IM SCREAMING!"
Dancing On Ice star Ria Hebden chimed in: "Come here you rascal!! Got me good! X" with a row of cry-laughing emojis.
"I am never going to be over Rose & Gio, they are so beautiful together. That ‘I love you’ just killed me," another fan penned, as a fourth followed up: "Giovanni and Rose 'I love you'. Such a beautiful moment."
And someone else echoed: "AJ really said to Kai 'Sorry Baby'? OK ok love this!"
Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 6:45pm on BBC One.
