AJ Odudu’s life was changed by Strictly, as he is now a professional dancer. The series has also taught him how to be more accepting of himself and his body shape.
The “AJ Odudu feels liberated” is a series that currently has 10 episodes. It follows the life of AJ Odudu and his time in prison. AJ was released from prison on October 2021 and he feels liberated after being in jail for so long.

AJ Odudu has spoken out about how Strictly Come Dancing has emancipated her by allowing her to be her “unapologetic self.”
The 33-year-old TV host has advanced to the semi-finals of the competition and claimed she enjoys revealing a more vulnerable side of herself on the dance floor.
AJ, who dances with professional partner Kai Widdrington, described learning to express herself through dance as “life-changing.”
‘The show has absolutely empowered me; I feel entirely emancipated,’ she remarked.
‘There are so many tiny things in television that I guess subconsciously I haven’t even realized about myself, even the confidence to go on TV in front of millions of people without make-up on, that’s been quite a thing,’ she says.
‘Showing various parts of my personality, being my entire, unapologetic self, has been pretty freeing since, I think, it’s not something I do naturally, like go on TV and weep, because I’m always cheerful and lively,’ she said.

The Blackburn beauty praised Kai for everything he has taught her, saying it’s been ‘wonderful’ to be appreciated just for being herself.
The couple has been the subject of romance rumors from the beginning of their time on the program, and AJ believes it’s ‘adorable’ that people are so involved in their friendship.
AJ remarked, ‘I think this goes to show how plainly we are getting on incredibly well,’ after much conjecture after their steamy performances and electrifying chemistry. However, we definitely want everyone to concentrate on what we’re doing on the dance floor.’
Professional dancer Kai agreed with her, noting that if they dance as if they are more than friends, they are doing their job perfectly since that is “how the dance is intended to be done.”

AJ joked that if she met an attractive guy on the dance floor, she could apply her new talents, adding that she feels ‘dancing is so cheerful and so beautiful.’
‘I can’t wait to show off my dancing talents at Christmas, birthday parties, and weddings,’ she says.
She said, ‘I’m ready to empty dance floors throughout the UK.’
The couple is ‘overjoyed’ to have progressed this far in the competition, but they confess they will miss their time together and with the rest of the Strictly group after the program ends.
But don’t worry; they’ve promised to keep in touch.
Kai and AJ ‘get along like a house on fire,’ so ‘of course’ they’ll see each other outside of Strictly rehearsals now that they’ve gotten to know one other so well.
