AJ Pritchard has pledged to support his "Strictly Come Dancing" co-stars Katya Jones and Seann Walsh in spite of their kissing controversy.
The 23-year-old dancer - who has been paired with the British Paralympic athlete Lauren Steadman during the current series of "Strictly" - has insisted that despite the ongoing furore surrounding Katya and Seann, the celebrities and their professional partners have all remained focused on their routines.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk, AJ explained: "When you're out dancing, you could be anywhere in the world, but it's only the dance that matters.
"We all support our fellow dancers and so we don't really think about anything else that had happened in the week."
The controversy surrounding Katya and Seann erupted after they were photographed kissing in London following a night out.
The duo both subsequently apologised for the incident, but have also faced calls to quit the show.
Meanwhile, AJ - who was romantically linked to Mollie King, his dancer partner on last year's show - has insisted he wouldn't really compare his own situation to that of Katya and Seann.
Katya, 29, has been married to fellow professional dancer Neil Jones since 2013, and Seann recently split from his girlfriend Rebecca Humphries.
Asked whether or not he could relate to what Katya and Seann have been going through, AJ - who first appeared on the BBC show in 2016 - said: "I'm going to have to say I don't relate - my publicity was completely different to theirs."
