STRICTLY Come Dancing contestants are secretly egged on by their professional partners through microphones when they dance.
Whispered words of encouragement like "nice, relax, go, slow" are heard loud and clear thanks to nifty devices worn by the pros.
A video shared on Strictly's official Instagram page revealed clips of secret conversations between the couples mid-performance.
And it lifted the lift on what really goes on between the celeb and their trainer as they are made to dance for millions of fans on the BBC One show.
In one clip, Giovanni Pernice can be heard helping Michelle Visage through her steps as she glided around the dancefloor in Movie Week last Saturday.
While Anton Du Beke was also heard easing EastEnders star Emma Barton into her stride.
The sensitive recording devices even picked up the sound from the moment Katya Jones tripped and picked herself back up as she danced with Mike Bushell.
The thud of her fall could be heard as she cried:"oooh!" before begging Mike to "carry on."
And AJ Pritchard and Saffron Barker's panting breath vibrated in the mics during their sizzling Hunger Games inspired number.
The Sun revealed last week that Saffron and AJ laughed off rumours they have fallen victim to the show’s infamous curse.
The pair said they found the reports – sparked by photos of AJ, who is in a relationship, putting his arm around the glam YouTuber as they shared headphones – laughable, despite their rampant chemistry on the dance floor.
Addressing the snaps head on for the first time, northern quickstepper AJ, 24, said: “Oh my God that was hilarious. It makes me laugh so much. It doesn’t bother us. We don’t have time to think of it.
“We’re just walking with headphones in because we’re doing a radio interview. They’re just like photos of anybody walking down the street as normal.”
On passionate-looking clinch in rehearsals, he said: “That’s what we did in the first 10 seconds of the dance. 10 million people saw that.
“The great thing with us is we get on so well. Everybody sees that and thinks what they want to think. We’ve both got the same goal in sight at the end.”
