Debbie has however shut down an suggestion of romance, but did admit she finds it flattering that people think they are together.
She told Bella magazine: "We have a great working dance partnership and we really love each other as human beings, so I can see why people want to say there's something going on.
"For a woman of my age, it makes me feel fantastic.
"To be nearly 60 and have people think I'd be having an affair with such a good-looking Italian is good for one's confidence…
