AJ Pritchard says I’m A Celeb ‘will show the real me after shackles of Strictly’

AJ Pritchard has revealed that being a campmate in the upcoming I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! will fulfil a “childhood dream”.

The 26-year-old former Strictly Come Dancing professional has been revealed in the line-up for the new series on ITV and he can’t wait to share the ‘real me’ with the viewers at home.

AJ quit the BBC dance show after the last series, so that he could take on opportunities offered to him which he couldn’t agree to while being under the Strictly umbrella.

His first major project since leaving Auntie Beeb will be to face the freezing November weather in North Wales, after the show relocated to Gwrych Castle following restrictions on travelling dictated by the coronavirus pandemic.

AJ did take a cheeky swipe at his old show though, as he admitted that I’m A Celeb is “better” than Strictly.

He said: “I was so excited to watch the return of Strictly this Autumn, but now I am going to be on an even better show! I can’t wait!”
