AJ’s exit came after she looked back on her heartache last year when she was forced to retire from Strictly Come Dancing.

She remained in agony after the injury deprived her of the chance to compete in last year’s final.

Still, AJ said her heart ached more than her feet when she was forced to retire from the finals just days earlier.

The star and her professional partner Kai Widdrington, 26, could not compete against EastEnders star Rose Ayling-Ellis and Great British Grandma’s winner John Whaite after she tore a ligament during training the day before the final.

AJ, from Blackburn, who helped present the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Choice, scored a perfect 40 with a quick step in the semifinals.

‘It’s not that I thought I was going to win – because I didn’t – but I was just broken because I knew we were going to make a great show,’ she told the Daily Mail’s Weekend magazine.

She described how the ligament in the arch of her foot remained ‘hanging by a thread’.

‘I literally fell to my knees,’ she said. ‘The level of pain was over the roof.’

AJ also revealed that through her exploits Strictly she gained a famous fan – Hollywood star Tom Hiddleston.

She said he approached her at the Bafta award and said, ‘I’m such a big fan’. She added: ‘It works strictly. It takes you to the next level. ‘

Deaf star Rose, 27, won the glittering finale.
