“It just all depends on the mood of the dance and that’s one of the greatest things I’ve enjoyed.

“I exude so much confidence and each time I finish a performance, I think, ‘Oh my gosh! I can’t believe I just did that. I can’t believe it’s me on that dance floor.’

AJ told Kai he ‘looked so good’

As AJ picked up the paddle, she remarked: “Oh Kai, you look so good!” which made the dancer raise his eyebrows and smile.

The pair then played the game together and got almost every question right and on the one occasion they guessed opposite from one another Kai quickly changed his mind.

As host Rylan Clark told them they didn’t match this time around, AJ turned to tell him: “Are you joking? You are so distracted,” and so Kai quickly turned his paddle around to be the same as hers.
