AJ and Kai are hoping to wow the judges this weekend

The pair, who have been often praised by the judges and viewers alike for their chemistry on the dancefloor, are hoping to find themselves higher up the leaderboard this weekend following their salsa suffering a lift "disaster" and ending up in the bottom two.

While Kai said he took total blame for the mishap at the end of the dance, AJ was left in tears when it came to the backstage debrief with Claudia Winkleman. "Do you know what, I'm so gutted because we've worked so hard this week," she said before she broke down.

Trying to regain her composure, she continued: "I don't want to get emotional but we have just worked so hard this week and everyone at home, I just hope you don't feel like I've let you down. I'm sorry." We know they can bounce back!
