BBC Comic Relief: AJ Odudu’s life from stunning South East London home to rumoured romance with Strictly star

AJ Odudu will join Joel Dommett, Zoe Ball, Paddy McGuinness and David Tennant to host Comic Relief 2023. The annual event will see the presenters host a night jam-packed full with celebrity guests, hilarious sketches and live musical performances. AJ is probably best-known for co-presenting the 2013 Channel 5 reality show spin-off Big Brother’s Bit on the Side, alongside Emma Willis and Rylan Clark. Most recently, the 35-year-old TV star was a contestant on the eleventh series of Strictly Come Dancing – where she was partnered with Kai Widdrington. Sadly, AJ missed out on the final after she pulled out of the competition in the last stages due to an injury. At the time, she said: “I’m deeply upset that I am unable to perform in the final due to a torn ligament in my right ankle.”

Fans were unable to tear their eyes away from the show, as each week, AJ and Kai took to the ballroom dance floor to perform their dazzling routines. But their spectacular performances wasn’t the only thing on viewer’s lips, as many speculated that the pair may become an item. AJ, however, shut down the rumours saying that she was too busy focusing on their dance.

She’s said: “I found it easy not to be distracted. I was working so hard and was so focussed on my performances each week. It is hard when you’re receiving a lot of attention and are constantly asked the same questions but honestly, Kai and myself were so focused and we just wanted it to be the best experience it could be.” Originally from Blackburn, Lancashire, AJ now lives in South East London. The presenter often shows off her stunning home on Instagram. Her house is full of bright décor including unique framed art pieces and an array of plants. To bright up her white coloured living room, AJ has a orange sofa and another black and white couch with yellow cushions. Although she works as a television presenter, AJ is a qualified personal trainer and sports nutritionist.
