Strictly's AJ Odudu says there's 'a lot of romance' learning sexy dances with partner Kai after dating rumours

STRICTLY star AJ Odudu says her sexy routines with pro partner Kai Widdrington are packed with romance.

The pair have set tongues wagging with their sizzling chemistry on the dancefloor and Kai was even heard saying "I love you" after their sensational movie week dance.


And TV presenter AJ, 33, credits Kai, 26, with helping her unleash her sexy side.

She said: "Right, So Kai has not only been teaching me how to dance but he's been teaching me how to act. There's a lot of passion, there's a lot of chemistry, there's a lot of romance, it's thrilling!

"And in practice I could not look at Kai without bursting out into laughter. But now hopefully come Saturday night, I'm going to look at him eye to eye, look in love and it's going to be amazing. But it is awkward!"

For many, getting up close and personal with someone you've only just met could be awkward, AJ said her mind is too focused on perfecting the routines to think about it.

"For me personally, I'm not thinking about it," she said. "I'm literally thinking, 'okay, heel, step onto the ball, roll onto the back of your…' I'm thinking about the steps, Kai might as well not be there. Joking, I'm only joking.

"But I'm just concentrating so much that I'm not really focused on being in his personal space. And then when it comes to the performance, then I'm like, oh yeah Kai, brilliant, let's do this. Do you know what I mean?"

Viewers and the judges might have been blown away by AJ so far, but no one has been more impressed than Kai.

He said: "She's a dream student, she's so good. And just as I'm patient with her she's patient with me as well when I'm ramping it up a little bit and making things harder and I'm always trying to push her to her best.

"So if I think a step can be made even better by doing something more, we've said that the rule is that there's no such thing as 'I can't' or 'no, I can't do that' in the rehearsal room, unless it's like a back flip or something crazy, you know what I mean?

"So yeah, we're both very ambitious and we are both driven in the same way. So just as AJ said, for someone who learned to dance just over three weeks ago, it's incredible what she's achieved so far. So hopefully there's a long way to go yet!"
