The strict professional gushed about his dance partner in a new interview, calling them "so close."
AJ Pritchard also said he did not know what could happen between him and the Paralympics athlete Lauren Steadman in the future.
The 24-year-old actress from Strictly Come Dancing said, "I'm very protective of Lauren because we work so hard together.
"There are different things she'll talk about in training, about which she would never talk on camera."
"We will be friends for life and who knows in the future … You never know what will happen."
The star went on to tell The Mirror: "That's why we grow so close and we'll be friends for life and who knows in the future … You never know what's going to happen."
Speculation comes after Katty Jones and Seann Walsh, Strictly Dance's partners, were spotted in a pub last month.
The pair, who both had partners at the time, apologized publicly for the incident.
Katya, 29, is now working on her marriage to fellow dancer and Neil Jones.
Meanwhile, Seann, 32, was dumped by girlfriend Rebecca Humphries online.
It has also been speculated that Pussycat Dolls Ashley Roberts has enjoyed dating the dancer Giovanni Pernice.
However, the pair currently kept their mouths shut in the rumors.
On weekends, Strictly Show will show her that couples take the floor in Blackpool as the closest edge of the glitter ball trophy.
Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC One on Saturday at 6:45 p.m.
