The outing comes after insiders have claimed to The Mail On Sunday that AJ and Kai are an item.
A source on the BBC One show said AJ and Kai had made no effort to keep a secret of the fact that they had fallen for each other during intense, gruelling training sessions.
However, they haven’t been struck by the show’s infamous ‘curse’ because both of them are single.

Kai who made his Strictly debut this year, is said to have been ‘floored’ by his partner, who is best known for co-hosting Channel 5’s spin-off Big Brother’s Bit On The Side.
In an audio clip on Strictly’s Instagram account recorded after a performance, Mr Widdrington, who once turned down a football career with Southampton, was heard whispering: ‘I love you, I love you so much.’
The source said: ‘Kai thinks AJ is sexy. They have this lovely romance going on, things have definitely changed in the last week or so and they are inseparable, not just as dance partners but away from that, too.
Contestants: Dan Walker and Nadiya Bychkova looked similarly upbeat as they arrived for It Takes Two filming together
Stunning: While Dan bundled up in a tracksuit, Nadiya pulled out all the style stops in knee high boots, tailored shorts, a chic grey jumper and an oversized blazer.
‘It’s nice to see a Strictly romance where there is no curse, just two people who have fallen head over heels for each other.
‘Those involved in the show have been watching this closely over the weeks and have thought this was always on the cards. It’s lovely.’
AJ admitted last week that they had ‘chemistry’, adding: ‘There is a lot of passion… a lot of romance, it’s thrilling.’
A Strictly spokesman declined to comment on their relationship.
