The daughter of celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, 19, and her pro partner, 23, set tongues wagging when they were seen leaving his flat together.
However, a source told The Sun Online that Tilly sees Nikita as more like a big brother and she’s also becoming close with his girlfriend Nicole Wirt.
Rumours: Tilly Ramsay has reportedly laughed off claims that she has a crush on her Strictly Come Dancing partner Nikita Kuzmin
They said: ‘Tilly finds the stories really funny. Lovers? She’s been saying he’s more like a brother. Tilly says Nikita is literally the funniest person she’s ever met but there’s nothing at all going on behind the scenes.
‘They are too busy having fun and she’s also spoken to his girlfriend a couple of times on Facetime.
‘Tilly thinks Nicole’s amazing – an absolutely incredible dancer. She’s been really supportive of them and been wishing them well in private throughout the series.’
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Strictly Come Dancing for comment.
It comes after Tilly told Hello! that her relationship with Nikita is strictly platonic as they throw themselves into training for Movie Week.

Rumours swirled that the duo were set to be victims of the show’s famous ‘curse’ after the pro’s girlfriend Nicole penned a crypical message about ‘not being supported.’
However, Nicole also shared a photo of Tilly and Nikita’s waltz from week one and wrote: ‘Cheering on my faves’ and said their performance was ‘mesmerizing’.
After Tilly and Nikita were seen heading back to her flat one evening, the daughter of TV chef Gordon Ramsay set the record straight, clarifying: ‘No no – we were filming a VT for the show, we really are just good friends and dance partners.’
Nikita added that his family and his girlfriend Nicole have been hugely supportive since he joined the Strictly lineup earlier this year.

He said: ‘My family and my girlfriend have been an amazing support since I started Strictly. I try to call them every day to update them on how it’s going.
‘We’re used to living far away from each other. I lived in Denmark for most of my youth, then I lived in a separate city in Italy to them, then in Germany for the last five years.
‘It would be a dream for them to come and watch Strictly live. My mother is a huge Strictly fan – she knows more about the show than I do!’
Later in the day Tilly took to Instagram to share a beaming team shot alongside Nikita against the glitsy Strictly studio backdrop.

‘Getting ready for movie week!! This dance is so much fun I cannot wait for you guys to see it,’ she teased.
‘Also had to get @nikita__kuzmin some matching slippers so he wouldn’t steal mine @bbcstrictly,’ she quipped.
It comes after Tilly, who is single, insisted that she is on Strictly to focus on the dancing, which she is juggling with her university work.
Speaking to new! magazine, she said: ‘Yes, I am single but I’m here to focus on dancing.
‘I’d have been crazy to say no to Strictly Come Dancing. It really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and most importantly I really want to learn to dance.’
Couple: Nicole previously offered her support for girlfriend Nikita did offer her support with this post where she wrote: ‘vote for these cuties’
