Strictly's AJ Pritchard and brother Curtis slam

Pritchard and brother Curtis slams thugs attacks.

AJ Pritchard and his brother Curtis have appeared in their first TV interview since they were attacked by a group of thugs at a nightclub last week.

Nursing his injuries, Curtis, 22, sat with a bandaged leg and a pair of crutches, with AJ, 24, by his side, as they talked to Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes on This Morning on Wednesday.

And musing on the incident – which left Curtis with a severe knee injury – the younger of the brothers said he believed the thugs responsible for the attack were ‘jealous’ of AJ for his celebrity status and good looks.Curtis said: ‘I can only say perhaps it was jealousy, because AJ was doing a couple of photos with people. He’s a good looking lad. I was the one getting asked to take the photos, which is fine.’
AJ then added: ‘If someone comes up to me and asks me for a photo, if they do it politely, I’m always going to say yes. [This incident] has made me very aware of putting myself in a scenario of larger crowds.’Obviously I’m doing the Strictly tour coming up and I will think twice’
The pair were in their hometown of Nantwich, Cheshire when the incident took place – both spending the festive season at the family home.
