AJ was preparing for his appearance on Strictly spin-off show It Takes Two, where he admitted he had a few reservations about an upcoming dance move with celebrity partner Saffron Barker.

Joining new host Rylan Clark-Neal, the pair discussed Saffron doing Muay Thai boxing.

“I’ve actually begged him to put the Muay Thai boxing in a routine and it will happen,” she said.

“We added that kick in today,” AJ added. “We added an overhead kick. I spin to my knees and she kicks over my head and I catch her before she hits the floor.”

But AJ said he’s worried Saffron might not be able to fully execute the move.

“I just want to make sure that you do get over my head,” AJ told his partner.

“Honestly, I skimmed his head today, like, so close,” the YouTuber laughed.

As he clutched his chest, the star joked: “Heart attack!”
