Strictly Come Dancing professional AJ Pritchard has opened up about how much of an idea him and his co-stars have over who will be their celebrity partners ahead of an appearance on Lorraine tomorrow.
The Strictly star is a fan favourite on the show and has previously been partnered with The Saturdays singer Mollie King, gymnast Claudia Fragapane and Paralympian Lauren Steadman.
When asked whether he ever knows who he’ll be dancing with, he confessed: “I don’t have a clue before hand.
“If you are 6 ft 4 and a lovely person and beautiful I’d be like, ‘But it’s just not going to work’, and sometimes I’m like, ‘we are the same age range perhaps – so it won’t be you’.
“Other than that you have no idea, it makes you so nervous but excited at the same time.
“We all try and guess, the emphasis is on the try but when I try I get it so wrong.”
However there is one celebrity he describes as his “perfect” partner and someone he really hopes signs up to the show in the future.
“I would love to see Lorraine on Strictly, obviously. Every time I come to see Lorraine, I say ‘do a twirl’, AJ admitted.
“I think she’s just being modest saying she has two left feet. It would be perfect to be her partner, it would be magic,” he added.
AJ is set to appear on Lorraine tomorrow to meet veterans of the Second World War in France to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D Day Landings.
