AJ Pritchard was stuck for words after Zoe Ball asked him about his relationship status on It Takes Two. The Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer, who was reportedly in a relationship with his former dance partner from 2017, Mollie King, was left red-faced when Zoe asked if he could 'relate' to the song he will be dancing to on Saturday night – Girlfriend by Avril Lavigne.
AJ is currently dancing with Lauren on Strictly
He said: "Yes, no, no, yes… I don't know." She asked Lauren: "Have you had talks about him and his girlfriends at all?" to which the Paralympian replied: “Well, we did ask. I was like, 'So, have you had a girlfriend AJ?' He was like, 'No.'" AJ agreed, saying: "No, no. No girlfriends, no." He also denied that he was in a relationship with Mollie during their time on the show last year, but revealed that she was going to be in the audience on Saturday. He explained: "Mollie is coming to watch, actually, at the weekend. I will be sat in the audience as Lauren spray paints out the ex-girlfriend's name. And then walks over and removed me from the girl I'm sat with."
The couple also recently reunited for the Pride of Britain Awards on Monday night, and AJ shared a snap of the pair smiling, while AJ - looking dapper in a tuxedo - wraps his arm around Mollie, who is wearing a gorgeous red gown. He captioned it: "Great to catch up with Mollie King at the Pride of Britain Awards #aboutlastnight." AJ also uploaded a photo of himself with current dance partner Lauren Steadman on the red carpet at the ceremony, and wrote: "Thank you to Lauren Steadman who inspires me on a daily basis, you are what the Pride of Britain Awards stand for.. A truly inspirational person, with a good heart. Thank you."
