AJ was quizzed on his clash with Shane, which happened when the dancer was unimpressed by the actor’s cleaning efforts ‘If you’re going to do a job do it properly, you know, come on,’ said AJ, with Ant saying he was on his side.

When asked by Dec if it was frustrating when people didn’t pull their weight, AJ replied: ‘Maybe I’m not going to lie. I think if you’re going to do your job do it properly it’s much better between everyone else. The thing is resolving problem and not letting them fester. Shane was really ill at times, you have highs and lows.
‘Everybody was positive it was rewarding.’
During Mo’s eviction interview, the athlete spoke of why he took part in the show: ‘Part of me was like “can I challenge myself?”. All I wanted to know is can I go in and challenge myself. I mean I know I can run. It’s been an amazing journey, I wouldn’t change one thing.
‘I let go and was myself. It’s amazing. The challenges were brutal. It was hard but you wanted to challenge yourself.’
When asked about who they wanted to win, both said they wanted Giovanna Fletcher to win.
‘She’s so positive, she does so much for so many people. She picked me up when I was down’, said AJ.

After winning the bag of coins from Humphrey’s mouth they were offered to either take the remaining treats from home for AJ, Giovanna and Jordan, or a fruit platter, and Jessica chose the former.
