Strictly Come Dancing's AJ Odudu collapses after gruelling training session with Kai Widdrington

STRICTLY Come Dancing's AJ Odudu collapsed during a gruelling training session with Kai Widdrington.

The presenter said she was "hanging on for dear life" as pro dancer Kai filmed her in a heap on the floor.

The duo will this weekend be performing the Paso Doble to Game Of Survival by Ruelle.

And AJ admitted the fast-paced ballroom dance, that's based on a Latin American style of marching, had gotten the best of her.

She wrote over her photo taken in their dance studio: "Paso's going well"

Rumours continue to swirl around the pair's growing friendship.

In further proof of how close they are, AJ revealed Kai paid for her most recent trip to the dentist, which she needed as a result of indulging in too many sugary treats between rehearsals.

She said: "I have so much chocolate and so many sweets that one of my back teeth fell out.

"I had to go to the dentist and I forgot my purse, so I was like, 'Come on Kai, cough up!'. He sorted me right out."

AJ topped the leaderboard last week with her energetic Charleston to Don't Bring Lulu by Dorothy Provine, Pinky and The Girls, which gave her a score of 39 out of a possible 40.

Social media star Tilly Ramsay and partner Nikita Kuzmin will be looking to recover this weekend after landing in the dance-off with a quickstep to Damita Jo's I Won't Dance.

The couple narrowly avoided exiting the competition after finding themselves in the bottom two following the public vote, but survived a dance-off against Olympic swimmer Adam Peaty and Katya Jones, who were eliminated from the show.

Dragons' Den star Sara Davies and her partner Aljaz Skorjanec will perform an Argentine tango to No More Tears (Enough Is Enough) by Donna Summer and Barbra Streisand.

BBC Breakfast's Dan Walker and Nadiya Bychkova will dance an American smooth to The Proclaimers' King Of The Road, while BBC presenter Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu will perform a charleston to the song The Charleston by Bob Wilson and his Varsity Rhythm Boys.

Great British Bake Off winner John Whaite and Johannes Radebe, who are the dance competition's first all-male couple, will perform a samba to Acuyuye by DLG.

McFly singer Tom Fletcher and partner Amy Dowden will dance the Viennese Waltz to Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls on Saturday.

While Rose Ayling-Ellis will be looking to dazzle the Strictly Come Dancing judges again on Saturday as she performs her couple's choice dance.

The EastEnders actress will dance to Symphony by Clean Bandit featuring Zara Larsson alongside her professional partner Giovanni Pernice.

She previously secured a perfect 40 for her tango in week six, the earliest the top mark has been handed out, and last week she received her highest score for a Latin dance so far with a 32 when she performed a samba.

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 6.40pm on BBC.
