Strictly fans think Katie McGlynn and Gorka Marquez aren't getting along as they spot 'tension'
STRICTLY Come Dancing fans are convinced Katie McGlynn and Gorka Marquex aren't getting along after spotting "tension" between them.
The pair wowed fans with their jive on Saturday night, but some spotted they may not have found their groove off the dance floor just yet.
Viewers took to social media to point out "tension" between Katie, 28, and Gorka, 31, both on the show and on their respective social media accounts.
Fans noted that Spanish star Gorka looked glum in posts made by the soap actress before the live show as they prepared for their second dance.
It came after the pair appeared to have disagreed over the amount of time that Hollyoaks star Katie spent rehearsing as she skipped dancing for filming.
She was spotted in Liverpool filming for Hollyoaks as Gorka snided ahead of their dance that they had "no hours to train".
"If you achieve what you do with no experience and no hours to train, I can't wait to see the rest," the professional dancer told her last week.
Despite their jive wowing the judges, fans couldn't help but notice how the tension continued after their second dance.
Taking to Twitter after their jive, one viewer said of them standing beside each other: "Gorka and Katie DO NOT like each other."
While a secons said: "Gorka looked really annoyed and Katie was barely even clapping, I though they seemed off with each other last week."
A third added: "OK I'm going to say it… There seems to be a weird vibe between Katie McGlynn and Gorka on Strictly.
"Not a 'sexy' vibe but a discomfort of a niggle. Picked up on it last week and there it was again tonight. Weird, right?"
It comes days after news that Strictly bosses were angered by Katie's Hollyoaks filming commitments eating into her dance rehearsal time.
Last week the former Coronation Street star finished joint third from the bottom of the scoreboard for her tango.
Since the contest launched she has had to fit her practice sessions with Gorka Marquez around shooting scenes for the Channel 4 soap.
A TV insider said: “Tensions seem to be rising as the actor struggles to juggle her two major commitments.
“There is no suggestion that Katie herself is to blame. She is being pulled in one direction by Hollyoaks and in the other by Strictly.
“But there’s no doubt she is exhausted by her schedule and she isn’t getting in as much practice as she would like with Gorka, who’s even arranged rehearsal sessions in Manchester to make life easier for her.”
Katie spends a chunk of her weekdays filming Hollyoaks in Liverpool, where she plays firebrand Becky Quentin.
At weekends she makes the 440-mile round trip south and back to make Strictly’s live shows at Elstree Studios in Herts.
BBC bosses made it clear they didn’t blame Katie for the situation.
A spokeswoman said: “The suggestion that Strictly production is disappointed in Katie for any reason is categorically untrue.”
A Hollyoaks spokesperson said: “Earlier this week exterior scenes were delayed by wet weather. We then rescheduled a scene so Katie could attend her training. We will all be rooting for her tonight.”
