WATCH: AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington spark romance rumours with hidden mic clip

AJ is currently believed to be single. The star, who sadly had to pull out of the grand finale due to an injury, prefers to keep her love life private but since being on the show, she has opened up about the prospect of romance.

Earlier on in the series last year, the Strictly contestant was quizzed by BBC Radio 2 DJ Zoe Ball if she and Kai were more than friends following their passionate routine for movie week, which was based on the hit film, The Bodyguard.

"Some of the newspapers are trying to allude – and I think everyone is hoping and praying – that maybe, romance…?" Zoe remarked to the star. As Zoe then noted that AJ was giggling, the 33-year-old insisted: "I'm just giggling! Guys, I was in character at that moment on the dance floor this week."
