Culculoglu impressed fans with her debut routine, but ended up in bottom place which means she will have to take part in the skate off next week where one couple will be the first to be sent home.

Reid said: "If Ekin-Su comes out early this year, that puts quite a lot of pressure on you next year."

Sanclimenti replied: "I went to see her and they gave me some ice skates. They were actually surprised at how I could at least stand on myself.

"Next year we'll see. I think this is the year of Ekin, I'm going to be there to support her, and then next year if I'm going to have the possibility I hope she will be there to support me."

Reid and her co-host Ed Balls also had questions about rumours of an engagement after the couple posted a video to social media of Sanclimenti giving Culculoglu a ring.

He said: "I gave her a ring because now we are officially together, we love each other, we live together, and I thought that even if we are still not getting married there should be something on the hands, so I wanted to buy her a ring.

"I did for Christmas and I gave it to her in Rome just to make it more symbolic."

Balls asked: "So you are engaged?"

Sanclimenti replied: "Yes – no, no, it's a promise ring."

Balls told him: "Davide, just get on with it," but Sanclimenti appeared to agree with Reid as she said: "Let them take their own sweet time."
