The outing comes after AJ and his brother Curtis commented on the backlash they faced for appearing on Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks.
The brothers – who are professional ballroom dancers and become reality stars – play twins Marco and Jacob in the long-running soap; but their scenes have gone viral in recent weeks due to their ‘wooden’ acting.
Other soap actors – like former EastEnders star Michael Greco and Hollyoaks’ own Parry Glasspool – have since hit the Pritchards and hit casting directors for hiring them, when there are trained actors looking for acting jobs.

In conversation with OK! MagazineCurtis, 25, claims he was unaware of the many memes and clips circulating on the internet calling their scenes “ painful to watch ” as the brothers make plans for the career of dance teacher Trish, played by Denise Welch, to ruin.
‘Up to this point, I felt absolutely nothing of it, because I hadn’t realized anyone had said anything. We always get that, we always get different things and for me it’s always about positivity, ”he said.
AJ added: ‘I’ve learned to go for the positives and not the negatives. If someone has constructive criticism that’s 100 percent great, but if it’s just negativity then I’m not going to waste my energy and time on that. ‘
