It was only a few days ago that Stacey seemed to respond subtly to tabloid reports about the state of her and her relationship with Sam.

It was alleged that Sam was "incredibly jealous" of her partnership with professional dancer Kevin.

However, it seemed that the documentary filmmaker had not had any of the reports and posted an Instagram picture of himself and Sam in an airplane, the latter slept on the former's shoulder. She took the snapshot with a fist emoji.

The support of Sams did not go unnoticed by spectators with an eagle eye tweet: "I'm not sure who I love anymore, @StaceyDooley or her boyfriend who cheers her every week."

And her movements are just as popular. In fact, Stacey seems to be winning more fans every week.

A Twitter message tonight was, "I had no idea who Stacey was when #Strictly started, and now she's my absolute favorite! She's a fantastic dancer and I bet she's a brilliant best friend."
