AJ Pritchard, 24, joined Saffron Barker, 19, on the Strictly Come Dancing 2019 podcast alongside Joe Sugg and Kim Winston. The dancing duo took part in the YouTuber’s game entitled Quickstep Questions, where the vlogger had to answer questions on how well she knows AJ. Saffron did not fare well in the quiz and her professional partner was seemingly unimpressed as he cheekily fumed at his dance partner for not knowing his birthday. Joe quizzed: “When is AJ’s birthday?”
AJ confidently shouted: “Yes, you know.”
But Saffron appeared stumped by the question as she took a long moment to remember the exact date.
“I definitely know this and I’ve definitely forgotten,” she replied.
“I want to say that it’s November but I can’t think of the date.”
AJ interjected: “I’ve made a whole thing of this,” sounding slightly annoyed his celebrity partner had forgotten the day he was born.
“You made a whole thing when?” Saffron challenged.
They discussed their routine on the Strictly spin-off show It Takes Two, where host Rylan Clark-Neal suggested her scores could see Saffron do very well in the competition.
Rylan told AJ: “This is your joint highest scoring dance ever on Strictly.
“Last time you got that it was with Claudia Fragapane, series 14.”
“Wow,” AJ remarked. “I think that was in the semi-finals.”
“It was,” Rylan confirmed before turning to Saffron and saying: “[You’ve] got a lot to live up to.”
Strictly Come Dancing continues tomorrow on BBC One at 6.30pm.
