AJ Pritchard has revealed that he doesn’t want to “label” his sexuality.
The Strictly pro dancer was most recently linked to Caroline Flack, and was also linked to his 2017 dance partner Mollie King – but never confirmed any of the romance rumours.
During a new interview with Gay Times, AJ opened up about his sexuality by explaining, “You never know how times will change in where you are in your life. But it is always about being happy and being true to yourself.”
“Like always following your heart – obviously listen to your brain – but really just at that time in your life.”
“It is mad that everything always has to have a label, whether it be the clothes by designers or whether you are in a relationship,” he said. “Everybody always wants to have that label when it is not always necessary.”
“At that time of your life, whatever you are, or wherever you are, things always change. You can’t ever say never, because you don’t know what is around the corner.”
“As long as you’re happy, that is the main thing. It’s something people forget way too often these days getting so stressed thinking about what other people’s opinions are or what they need to do tomorrow.”

During his interview, AJ also said that he believes Strictly Come Dancing will introduce same-sex couples when the time is right.
He said: “I know that everyone always asks when do you think it will happen, the same-sex couple on Strictly? And to be honest I don’t know when it will happen.”
“I think when it does happen, it will happen for the right reason and I think it will be represented great because Strictly always do that through the BBC. I think that it will be embraced, that is for sure.”
