‘Was in character!’ says the narrator. AJ Odudu of Strictly Come Dancing speaks out about Kai Widdrington’s romance rumors.
In a recent interview with Zoe Ball on BBC Radio 2, AJ ODUDU rejected allegations of a budding romance with her Strictly Come Dancing partner Kai Widdrington.
On Saturday, October 9, Strictly Come Dancing’s historic Movie Week returned, with 14 superstars taking to the dancefloor once more. AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington have been at the center of one of the most popular rumors of the BBC ballroom show’s latest competition after garnering an outstanding total of 35 points from the judges.
AJ, a TV presenter and Strictly Come Dancing contender, has spoken up to Zoe Ball on BBC Radio 2 about the rumored flames between her and Kai.
After fans couldn’t help but notice their closeness on Saturday night, Zoe pressed her guest about the rumors swirling about the relationship.
After performing a passionate American Smooth to Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing, the duo received three nines from the judges.
AJ initially remained silent, but couldn’t help but laugh at Zoe’s questions.
“She’s giggling nervously, that’s a good sign!” remarked the BBC presenter.
AJ, on the other hand, insisted that she and Kai were just playing the role for Saturday’s Movie Week special.
“I was just giggling,” she said, defending her original reaction.
“You know, I was in character on the dancefloor this week,” the Strictly star continued.
For their dance, AJ and Kai were inspired by the blockbuster 1992 film The Bodyguard, which starred Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner in love roles.
She stated, “I was playing Rachel, he was playing Frank, and they were in love.”
By the end of the film, Frank and Rachel are forced to say goodbye, and the romantic thriller concludes on a tragic note.
After their hot performance in Week Three, many fans and media outlets were expecting for a better ending for AJ and Kai.
In addition, Zoe was unconvinced by the Married At First Sight host’s denial.
“A little roleplay there, that’s how it all starts,” she said.
“We love, love, love you too,” Zoe added, confirming that AJ and Kai have become one of the season’s most popular couples.
When a Strictly insider stated the couple had hit it off behind-the-scenes, romance rumors were sparked.
“Everyone backstage is talking about the sparks flowing between AJ and Kai,” they told The Sun over the weekend.
“Brinkwire Summary News” says, “It’s always quite passionate and intense.”
