Strictly Come Dancing 2021: AJ Odudu shares sweet dedication to Kai Widdrington as she ‘misses’ partner: ‘I had his back’

Strictly Come Dancing 2021 finalist AJ Odudu is sorely missing her partner Kai Widdrington, sharing a heartfelt dedication to him on social media.

On Saturday night, Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice were ecstatic when they were crowned the winners of the competition, lifting the Glitterball Trophy as John Whaite and Johannes Radebe finished as runners-up.

After sustaining a serious foot injury, AJ and Kai were unable to compete, leaving fans devastated as they watched the pair put on brave faces in the audience.

In a new post shared on Instagram, the TV presenter harked back to the literal support the professional dancer gave her after her injury came to light, with Kai giving AJ a piggyback on the Strictly dancefloor in a sweet video filmed during the finale.

‘Just missing @kaiwidd being my personal mode of transport TBH. I really did have his back,’ she wrote in the caption.

While the comment might have been a bit tongue in cheek, the support Kai has given AJ has been truly heartwarming to witness!

In the first picture in her post, AJ shared a selfie that she took of her and Kai as the pair posed in the mirror, with the dancer beaming as he wrapped his arm around her.

Another photo shows AJ lying on top of Kai’s back as he stands bent over, while the last image captured him giving her another piggyback.

Several of the celebrity’s followers remarked on how much they missed seeing her and Kai on their TV screens.

‘You two are the best! Miss watching you dance together,’ one person wrote, with a crying emoji.

‘He really looked after you didn’t he! What a total gentleman!’ another said.

Someone else described the couple as the ‘best’ dubbing them a ‘dream team’.

When it was announced that AJ and Kai had to withdraw from the Strictly final, the dancer said that he would be ‘there for her through her recovery in whatever way I can’.

While there have been rumours of a romance blossoming between them – fuelled by their sizzling Rumba in the semi-final – the friends are yet to publicly confirm whether they are in a relationship.

Strictly Come Dancing is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
