AJ & Kai on how their big mistake happened
Strictly Come Dancing couple AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington have explained what went wrong during their dance on last Saturday’s episode.
Appearing on BBC Two’s Strictly: It Takes Two, AJ and Kai have explained why the lift didn’t go to plan.
“Well there’s a moment when you’re supposed to prep, you’re supposed to go out and roll in and there was no out,” Kai said.
“I realised that if I put her down she would have hit her head, so I thought I just have to wait and let her climb down and usher her to the next bit.”
AJ then interjected: “But I finished the dance, guys!”
The TV presenter went on to say how glad she was to get a second chance at the routine.
“It was stressful [being in the dance-off],” she admitted. “I was nervous going into that final lift. To be able to execute it and show everyone, this is what it was meant to look like, I was really pleased.”
