AJ Odudu admits she was ‘heartbroken’ at being forced to withdraw Seriously to dance day before the final.

The presenter is forced to drop out of the show after injuring a ligament in his leg in rehearsals with partners Kai Widdrington, and has been warned she will face a year of rehab if she weighs on it.

Describing the feeling of having to overcome the final hurdle, AJ sobbed: ‘I don’t know how to describe what it feels like to have a broken heart, and that’s what it feels like.’

She added: ‘But we had the best time on this show and I put on a brave face, Kai put on a brave face, we loved the show tonight. .’

While AJ thinks John Whaite and Johannes Radebe and Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice are ‘unbelievable’, she wishes she could be there with them too.

While trauma wasn’t how she wanted her time on the show to end, AJ is also grateful to have been there and had the wonderful experience she had.
