Staying strong, the TV star continued: 'だが, we have had the best time on this show and you know, I have been putting on a brave face, Kai has been putting on a brave face.

‘We’ve been swallowing tears throughout the night but I’m just so happy. I’m genuinely happy and grateful to be here – to have done all those incredible dances, to have learned so much, to have met all these beautiful people – [私] had the best outfits ever!’

AJ and Kai have been at the heart of romance rumours during the course of the show and she used the time to pay a heartfelt tribute to him – and their ‘unbreakable bond.’
‘I literally would not have been here without Kai. Learning to dance has truly been the biggest joy and every single week we have said “dance like it’s your last.”
‘And I’m so glad we did that from week one because we didn’t know that our last dance was our last dance. We didn’t know. But I am glad that our last dance(s), plural, I’m glad that they were brilliant and everyone enjoyed them as much as we did.’

A choked up Claudia also praised a stoic Kai, who made his Strictly debut this year.
The choreographer responded: ‘This girl just every week outdoes herself. Every week when I come into the training room I feel like the most luckiest professional to be in the room with a woman like this. She is the most strongest character, even after the setbacks that we’ve had.
‘She’s made my first season on Strictly the best experience ever and this will always hold a place special in my heart. We didn’t get the chance to dance tonight, but my God does she look the part!’
