AJ Pritchard confirmed he has quit Strictly Come Dancing and has strutted his stuff on the BBC dance floor for the last time. The Ballroom and Latin dancer released a statement on his Instagram page to announce the news and expressed an interest in exploring different TV projects. However, AJ’s next move could very well involve heading Down Under.
The Ballroom and Latin dancer could decide to follow in the footsteps of three other Strictly professionals and sign up to I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!
Bookmakers have priced up the odds of AJ’s next move and they’ve tipped a visit to the jungle at 7/1.
“AJ has thrown a bag on his Strictly career after four years, with hopes of becoming a TV presenter,” a spokesperson for Paddy Power said.
“We make him short-priced to head into the jungle in the short-term, though, and who knows, that could lead to a role on Extra Camp or to a slot on breakfast television.”

If AJ does head Down Under he’ll be joining the likes of Camilla Dallerup, Vincent Simone and Ola Jordan.
However, the former Strictly pro will be hoping to improve on their performance in the jungle.
Camila was the first celebrity to leave in 2009 after withdrawing from the competition on day four.
While Vincent and Ola both finished in tenth place in 2013 and 2016 respectively.
