AJ Pritchard has revealed he would love to be a judge on 'Strictly'

The 29-year-old dancer was a professional on the BBC One Latin and ballroom show from 2016 until 2019, and he would love to get the opportunity to join the judging panel.

He told Express.co.uk: "As a dancer, I will never turn my back on dancing, it's what led me to be in the position that I'm in now."

Quizzed on whether he'd like to pick up a paddle board, he replied: "I would love to be a judge, I could get my judging head on. I'm always doing different judging jobs around the country. I do love being in that position."

The current judging panel is comprised of former 'Strictly' professional Anton du Beke, Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, and head judge Shirley Ballas.

Since his 'Strictly' stint, AJ has competed on several reality shows, including 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!' and 'The Challenge UK'.

He made his acting debut in the Channel 4 soap opera 'Hollyoaks', alongside his brother, Curtis Pritchard, 28, however, he quit acting after they were widely criticised for their nine-episode run as dancer brothers Marco and Jacob in 2021.

He told the Daily Star newspaper's Hot TV column: "'Hollyoaks' were so happy with everything. That's all that matters.

"I enjoyed it but I feel like acting isn't my forte."

AJ and Curtis' casting on 'Hollyoaks' was slammed by various soap actors, who insisted people should be cast on talent, not social media followers.
