AJ Pritchard backing bro for Strictly Come Dancing

Share article:

AJ Pritchard is backing his brother to appear on "Strictly Come Dancing".

The 23-year-old dancing professional would love to see his younger brother Curtis appear on the BBC One Latin and ballroom show and thinks the sibling rivalry would make the show "so good".

He told The Sun's Bizarre TV column: "My brother is currently on "Dancing with the Stars" in Ireland. We are best friends so I would love it. Of course, there would always be sibling rivalry but that's what would make it so good."

Curtis has been linked to the programme in recent weeks following Brendan Cole's exit.

A source said: "With a distinct lack of tall male dancers to fill Brendan's shoes, Strictly had a tough job on their hands. But they've now found the perfect fit in Curtis.

"He may be AJ's younger brother but he's certainly not

smaller than his 5ft 7in stature, which means he could be partnered with the taller women celebrities."

Curtis found dancing through his parent's dance school, Pritchard's Dance and Fitness Academy, in Cheshire.

He said: "I got into dancing through my parents. But what got me seriously in to it was when dad would take me to major competitions he judged.

"Seeing professionals dance was my biggest inspiration."

During last year's series, AJ was partnered with pop star Mollie King and he recently insisted they will be friends "for life."

He said: "We're just great friends for life. That's all it was and that's what it will always be ... It was fantastic that all of the fans got behind us so much on the show and supported us. You never know what could happen in the future. If we crossed paths again for work then that would be fantastic."
