Strictly Come Dancing dancer AJ Pritchard has refused to define his sexuality.
“I don’t think I should have to define it,” he told The Sun in a recent interview.
“From the age of 12 when I decided to dance in high school, everyone was saying, ‘Oh, you’re a dancer’, and there was that kind of stigma about it.”
The professional dancer explained that he’s not interested in labels.
“I try not to think about it [the stigma]. I just live my life — but the support from the gay community is always fantastic.
“It’s really great because they are always the best people to always be around. I love being around gay people, going to gay clubs.
“Obviously in this industry, there happens to be more gay people, so it just seems to work perfectly — and it helps with the sales for the calendar.”
Pritchard, now dancing with Lauren Steadman, was rumoured to have a romance with previous dancing partner Mollie King, but the professional dancer has denied those claims.
“Me and Mollie were great friends and we will be friends for life,” he said.
He has revealed, however, that he’s looking for love and has joined Tinder.
“If I fell in love and found someone and we went on a couple of dates, I would go for it. I never try to look for love, but sometimes it finds me,” he added.
