Strictly Come Dancing finalist AJ Odudu got to live out her Live Tour fantasies as she attended the first London show of 2022 on her birthday.

Fans across the nation were gutted for AJ when she was forced to pull out of the finale, as well as the Live Tour, on medical grounds, after suffering a torn ligament. 

But whilst she didn’t get the chance to live out the glory of the string of arena dates, AJ hasn’t let that stop her from living out her best Live Tour life. 

The TV favourite excitedly posted some videos from her seat at the O2, with a tonne of fans in the background who were clearly buzzing to see her there.

’We’re at the O2 Arena watching the Strictly tour, everyone’s here. Say cheese!’ she shared on Instagram, as the camera panned out to the crowd.

‘Just in case I can’t get a photo with everyone, I’ll post you all on the ‘Gram,’ AJ added.

In another snap, AJ posed next to previous Strictly finalist Emma Barton, with a barrage of fans getting in on the snap. 

Elsewhere, Sara Davies shared a backstage snap with her pal AJ, as the pair beamed away at being reunited. 

Sara wrote: ‘So glad I got to catch up with this gorgeous one on her birthday!’

AJ was replaced on the tour by 2020 finalist Maisie Smith, who is dancing with Kai Widdrington throughout live shows. 

The TV presenter sweetly sent Maisie some flowers before her first show, as she wished her luck ahead of her stint. 

Taking to Instagram, former EastEnders star Maisie penned: ‘Aj you absolute beauty thank you so much for these.’ (sic)

‘I’m devastated not to be able to take part in the Strictly tour due to injury,’ AJ said at the time.

‘I had hoped for one last dance with Kai, but I must obviously follow the medical advice.

‘I wish my Strictly family the very best of luck on the road and I’ll definitely be there to cheer them on.’

Strictly Come Dancing returns later this year to BBC.
