Strictly pro Kai Widdrington ‘cools’ things with partner AJ Odudu as experts spot ‘wince’?

Romance rumours were once flying…

| Updated:

Strictly Come Dancing stars AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington were once subject to romance rumours.

However, this week body language expert Judi James has said that things have most definitely cooled between the pair.

And, with Judi admitting that AJ still looked enamoured with Kai, the pro dancer’s body language appears to be telling a bit of a different story.

What did Judi say about Strictly stars AJ and Kai?

Judi, working with Buzz Bingo, said things are cooling down between the pair.

“The body language signals from this couple are now considerably cooler off the dancefloor than they were a couple of weeks ago.

“Last week their flirt signals were suddenly invisible to both the naked eye and closer inspection.”

After watching back their Musicals Week waltz on Strictly last weekend, she made her assessment.

“At the end of their stunning routine, they did try to revisit the ‘almost kiss’ moment that caused so many rumours the last time they did it.

“This time though, as AJ looked up at Kai adoringly, he quickly wrinkled his nose and did a full-facial wince.”

“AJ was very emotional talking to Claudia, tearing up surprisingly as she thanked the fans for voting.

“Kai sounded very professionally supportive, calling her ‘this girl’ rather than AJ and saying she is a ‘pleasure’ to be with.

“This suggests that if there is a romance between these two they (or he) might have decided to cool any signals of it as they work through to the final.”
