No going round to Mo’s house for dinner for you my friend.

“No going round to Mo’s house for dinner for you my friend.”

“Which means going to @Mo_Farah house for dinner can’t go ahead!!”

Meanwhile, during the interview, AJ addressed the alleged tension between himself and Shane Richie.

Viewers recently spotted tension between the pair as they appeared to clash over the washing up in camp.

Host Lorraine Kelly asked him: “You all got on very well, there was very little tension.

“People are trying to make out there was a lot of tension between you and Shane. But really you all just got on didn’t you?”

AJ replied: “Yeah no great bunch of people. Yeah washing up, I’m not going to lie, my pans and Shane’s pans [were] two different standards.

“But we all ate in the clean pans afterwards and that’s all that matters.”
