During his chat on The One Show, AJ’s brother Curtis was asked who he thinks would work well with his brother in the competition, to which he replied with Saffron.

Later on in the chat, Emma Willis asked AJ if he is competitive when it comes to the show.

He replied: “I’ve been in semi final three years in a row. As they say fourth year's a charm. Straight to the final. I’ve got so many show ideas but its never happened for me just yet.

"I think Saffron...we can make it to the final. There it is. I’ve thrown it out there."
