If you’ve ever watched Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir do their thing on the ice, you’ve probably been hit smack in the face by the duo’s insane chemistry. But despite literally everyone hoping for a love affair, the pair continue to shoot our fantasies down. Is it really just a close friendship, or are they totally trolling us and are in fact madly in love? Well, fellow truth-seeking Canucks, hopefully you won’t have to wait much longer for an answer because Virtue and Moir will appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show next week, as confirmed on Twitter by one of the show’s producers.
Unsurprisingly, Canadians collectively lost their freaking minds when the news broke.
I’m not saying I didn’t screech when I found out Tessa and Scott were gonna be on the Ellen show, but I’m not NOT saying that either.

Call it denial, but many fans won’t rest until these lovebirds admit they are made for each other. And if anyone can get a truthful answer out of them, it’s Ellen. DeGeneres doesn’t shy away from a rumour (she called out Khloe Kardashian about Kylie’s pregnancy before it was even confirmed!), and she’s known for using her charisma and humour to influence guests into revealing the truth.
But getting the stone-faced athletes to admit to their hidden love may be beyond even her skills — despite the best efforts of journalists everywhere, the duo has continued to deny that any sparks fly off the ice. “It’s hard to explain our relationship because we’ve gone through so much together. It’s so intense. It is so special,” Moir revealed to CTV News. “You can’t really compare it and it’s hard for people to understand it. But honestly, when we look at each other I think we’re just thankful.”
The episode is set to air on March 20 at 4 p.m. EST on CTV and, to be honest, if someone wanted to make next Tuesday a national holiday so everyone can stay home to watch? Well, I wouldn’t complain.
