Turns out Mollie and AJ were 'caught together' on Strictly 5 years ago

Turns out Mollie and AJ were 'caught together' on Strictly

Well, well, well.

It was probably the worst-kept secret on telly and now it looks like the truth is finally out - Strictly's Mollie King and AJ Pritchard did get together.


Their co-star, professional dancer Brendan Cole, appears t0 have confirmed that they were an item.

Speaking on his All Night Long tour, he told the audience he'd stumbled across the pair getting cosy.


"One evening I went in the boys’ changing room, walked in the door and there were AJ and Mollie.

"I wouldn’t have thought anything of it if they had gone, 'Hey, Brendan, nice to see you'.

"But when I walked in the door, they went, 'Sorry, sorry! Didn’t see you there'.

"Two young single people who get together on the show — it’s great, right?"


The Saturdays star and her professional partner set tongues wagging with the chemistry-fuelled dances and visible flanter on the show in the autumn but denied that they were romantically involved.

"No, we’re not together, no we’re not. I promise. (I wouldn’t lie) to you Phillip, or you Holly," AJ told the hosts of This Morning in an interview in November.


"We get on so well and I think that’s maybe why there’s these rumours. We’re literally like best friends, we spend so much time together.

"We're training 12 hours of the day and I still love spending of every minute with him. So it's mad that you're not sick of each other."
