Strictly Come Dancing bosses invite AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington back for 2022 series

STRICTLY Come Dancing’s AJ Ododu is being lined up for one final spin on the dance floor.

The TV presenter, who quit the final with an ankle injury, could be offered the chance to give a one-off performance with pro Kai Widdrington during the next series.

A show source said: “The winner of the show returns to perform again for one dance when the series starts up again and it’s been suggested AJ could be allowed to come back for one last turn on the dance floor.

“Nothing has been decided yet but, if they can make schedules line up, AJ could be back for a final spin.”

Ligament damage had left AJ, 33, in agony and hobbling on crutches.

She had to withdraw 24 hours before Saturday’s final, won by EastEnders actress Rose Ayling-Ellis, 27.

She would not be the first celeb to be invited back — bosses let Nicola Adams and Katya Jones perform a special routine after they were forced out by Covid last year.

The source said: “The idea of allowing AJ to perform one last routine is something they’d love to make happen.”
