Price slashed on Mollie and AJ confirming romance live on Strictly this weekend

Sealed with a kiss? The money says these two have danced into each other’s hearts…


Strictly Come Dancing contestant Mollie King has set tongues wagging by, erm, setting her own tongue wagging with dance partner AJ Pritchard in rehearsals – and we’ve cut the odds on the pair confirming their relationship live on this weekend’s shows.

Though the duo have remained (unusually) tight-lipped when pressed on their status, we’re offering odds of just 5/1 that they confirm their relationship on Strictly this weekend – and 3/1 they share a kiss on the lips during their dance.

Things rapidly escalate in our other markets, which include the couple announcing their engagement this year (30/1), announcing a pregnancy in 2018 (8/1), and marrying in the New Year (20/1).

Though our traders appear to think that the reported couple won’t be invulnerable to the notorious Strictly Curse – offering odds of 8/1 that AJ enters into a relationship with a contestant on NEXT year’s shows.

The couple could do with a boost in viewer popularity, as they’re joint-last in the betting to win the show (7/1), with Joe McFadden (5/4) the new favourite ahead of Debbie McGee (13/8).

Asked about the potential couple spokesman Paddy Power said: “It’s all quite schoolboy stuff – stealing kisses behind the bike shed and excitable adults in their forties speculating as to whether they’ll kiss ‘on the lips’, but Mollie King and AJ Pritchard seem smitten.

“We think it’s an inevitability – and what better time to announce it than during the Strictly semi-finals? After all, every vote counts.”
