Piers Morgan surprised Strictly Come Dancing stars Saffron Barker and AJ Pritchard on Good Morning Britain after cheekily asking if the pair are "at it". During Wednesday episode of the breakfast show, he asked them: "Are you two at it yet like all the Strictly couples or not? You all end up with the curse right? Don’t tell me you haven’t tried. Have you or not?"

The pair instantly denied a romantic connection, with AJ explaining to Piers that he was in a relationship. Piers replied: "How does she feel about you dancing with a hot blonde?" to which the professional dancer said: "She is a hot blonde also so I’m very happy when I to dance with her... It’s the profession, Piers. Obviously if you wanna make it work, you obviously do 12 hours a day in the studio. You wanna do fantastic for 12 million people live on Saturday night. You work hard." Saffron added: "I just look at AJ as such a good friend."
