Nikita first insisted that his outfit ‘had a mind of its own’, but then said ‘Tilly was the one who unbuttoned my button’.
A shocked but smiling Tilly, daughter of TV chef Gordon Ramsay, initially denied it, telling Rylan: ‘That’s not true!’
The host then cried: ‘This is how rumours start, come on!’

Nikita urged viewers to check the cameras to prove he was telling the truth, and Tilly, defending herself, said: ‘My hand got caught – my hand pulled your shirt!’
‘My hand accidentally unbuttoned your shirt’, Rylan said sarcastically, adding again: ‘That’s how it starts babe, trust me!’
The pair have previously laughed off romance rumours, telling Metro.co.uk that they are ‘best friends’ and lucky enough to have the ‘perfect partnership’.
Nikita vowed: ‘We’re just laughing about it, it’s nothing serious. I mean, we’re professional dancers here and we’re here to make and have an amazing journey on Strictly and to have fun.’

The duo were eliminated from the competition on Sunday after a tense dance-off against CBBC presenter Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu.
Reflecting on her time on the show, the online personality said it was ‘hard to just pick one’ of her favourite moments.
‘Every moment has just been incredible and I’ve had the best person to dance with for the past 10 weeks,’ she said.
‘I really did not want it to be my last dance’, she replied after watching a montage of their best bits, as her pal added that he is ‘so proud’ of how far she has come since the start of the show.
