AJ Pritchard has upped the speculation surrounding his appearance in this year's I'm A Celeb line up after swerving Christine Bleakley's questions on Lorraine last week.

When asked to respond to rumours that he'd be appearing on the popular ITV reality show, the dancer, who appeared on TV with his brother, former Love Islander Curtis Pritchard, said, "Oooh these rumours.

"We've got a podcast every single week, we've got to keep that up."

Giving away nothing (dang it), AJ continued to avoid Christine's question and spoke about upcoming projects for himself and brother Curtis.

I'm A Celeb bosses have allegedly approached Jessie J following reports that they want to book "top talent to keep viewers hooked". We hope we get to see Channing Tatum waiting at the bridge for her, tbh.

"Obviously more presenting on TV together. So I'm definitely keeping myself busy with Curtis here," he added.

Hmmm, we're not convinced and, for that matter, neither was Christine.

The presenter hit back jokily, saying to the boys, "AJ, I've been in this game long enough to know that you didn't say 'no', so I am going to wait and see what happens in the next few weeks."

We'll be doing the same, Christine 😂.

Rumours first started circulating that the 25 year old would be starring on I'm A Celeb back in April when AJ announced that he'd be leaving Strictly Come Dancing (which we're still choked up about, FYI).

A source told The Sun, "[Bosses of the tv show] think he would be a great addition to the [I'm A Celeb cast] and it always helps to secure a heartthrob as it draws in much-needed younger viewers."

Plus, ANOTHER source told the MailOnline earlier this month that AJ is "really excited" to join the I'm A Celeb team.

Seems like all roads point to Gwyrch Castle. Well, if Welsh lockdown allows.
