AJ is just one of the many Strictly stars who are going on to do their own show ahead of the next series. Strictly couples Aljaz Skorjanec and Janette Manrara have a new production, Remembering the Movies, while Neil and Katya Jones will star as the protagonists of Somnium: A Dancer's Dream, which is dubbed an "explosive dance show" that depicts "a complicated modern love story". The couple will dance in the show for three dates in June at London's Sadler's Wells.

As well as the Strictly tour, AJ has been hitting headlines since the beginning of the year, most recently after being pictured looking loved-up with former Strictly star Caroline Flack at the National Television Awards. Just after Christmas, meanwhile, AJ and his brother Curtis were victims on an unprovoked attack at a nightclub in Cheshire, close to the family's home. Curtis had stepped in when a group of eight men targeted the pair, and suffered severe damage to his knee, resulting in him needing emergency surgery. The star passed out during the ordeal, and AJ carried him to safety away from the scene. The brothers have made several TV appearances since and have been praised for their bravery, while AJ later said that the attack had been "character building."
