AJ Pritchard fuming with Love Island star after she cost him £50k

AJ Pritchard is locked in a feud with former Love Island star Arabella Chi after she "cost him" a huge sum of money in a new TV show.

Dancer AJ, 28, has opened up about his feud with Arabella after the two were paired up together in The Challenge – a new game show that pits reality stars against each other to win a big prize pot.

However, they didn't prove a very effective team and failed to make it into the final three where they could have competed for £50,000.

AJ has claimed the fitness and swimwear model, 31, employed underhand tactics in a bid to win the cash for herself before ultimately costing them both a place in the top three by flunking their final challenge.

AJ also revealed that he won't be able to forgive the Love Island star as he blames her for their loss as he thinks she let him down.

He told the Sun: "We did not make the final three. If myself and Arabella made the final three, I'd have put my life on it that I would've won that show.

"But it seems as though it was Arabella that got Curtis [Pritchard] knocked out and it was Arabella again that got me knocked out the final and lost me £50,000."

He added, "I'm just going to throw it out there. That's a touchy subject and it's going to be touchy and a bit raw for the rest of my life!"

AJ also claims the former Love Island star "played dirty" when they faced one another in an elimination round and "repeatedly kicked" Kaz Kamwi despite knowing she was hampered by a pre-existing injury.

To make matters worse, he says she cost them the opportunity to progress further by struggling to complete a later mental challenge.

He continued: "I'm all about fair play, but the winner's the winner, loser is loser, end of. But what was really annoying for me then making it through to the final and not winning because I was put back with Arabella again, and it came down to doing another puzzle and blame whoever you want, you could see it on camera."

When asked if he'd like to meet Arabella away from the show, he said: "No! Unless she's got £50,000 to hand over. She cost me the win."

AJ's brother Curtis Pritchard also competed on the show alongside Love Islander Kaz Crossley. However, they unfortunately did not make it to the finale either.

Hosted by former The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright, The Challenge UK sees a host of stars travel to Argentina for a series of arduous trials as they compete for their share of £100,000 prize money and the title of Challenge UK Champion.

Other celebrity contestants include TOWIE regulars Ella Rae Wise and James Lock, Love Island's Kaz Kamwi and A Place In The Sun host Danni Menzies.

The Challenge UK airs on Channel 5 from 20 February 2023.
