Strictly’s AJ Pritchard announces first solo tour and says Lauren Steadman will join him
15th December 2018

The 24-year-old narrowly missed out on tonight’s final with his partner Lauren Steadman after they were sent packing last week.

But although AJ admitted he was gutted to be out, he’s now ready and raring to get started on his series of solo gigs – which start just weeks after the official Strictly tour ends.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online, AJ said: “My feet aren’t touching the ground but I love being busy.”

Get On The Floor Live, which kicks off in Grimsby on 3 March, is a ninety minute extravaganza which will see AJ and eight other dancers performing a number of high energy routines.

AJ explained: “It’s always been a dream of mine to have my own how.

“It’s doing what Strictly does so well but with bonus features.

“As much as you can choreograph your dances on the show, on your own tour you can go crazy.

“The tour is about highlighting the dance styles and telling the stories. You use each dance style and the theme to tell the story even better. It’s like travelling around the world in ninety minutes.

“We have created something spectacular. On Strictly we only have ninety seconds to tell the story but on the tour, we have three to four minutes for every dance.”

And Paralympic world champion Lauren will be joining AJ when he hits the stage.

He added: “I’ve sent Lauren tickets to every date of the tour. She is my friend for life.

“It’s a scenario where I couldn’t imagine where we would be at the minute.

“We grew closer as each week went by. Her confidence has soared. I am so excited to dance together again in the final.”
