THE brother of Whitchurch-based Strictly star AJ Pritchard has revealed he will be joining the upcoming season of Love Island.

Curtis Pritchard, who like his brother is a professional dancer and made his name on the Irish TV show ‘Dancing with the Stars’, will star in the newest season of the reality TV show.

For Curtis, this is a major milestone to recovering from a vicious attack in Nantwich late last year which left him with severe injuries and seriously jeopardising his career.

The latest series of Love Island will follow the familiar format of a thirteen young singletons heading to a sunny villa on the Balearic island of Mallorca, to find their soulmate.

Taking to Instagram to share his support, AJ said: “I’m so Proud of you. Can’t wait to watch, support and laugh at you.”

Speaking to ITV about the show, Curtis said: “I’d rate my looks quite high up on the scale, because sometimes people say I’m attractive. I’m not going to give you a number because I don’t really know.

“My best feature is my smile. Everyone always compliments me on it.”
