AJ Pritchard was left going solo on the Lorraine Kelly show after partner Mollie King missed it.
AJ was left alone on the sofa as Mollie slept through three alarms meant to get her to the show on time.
‘The poor wee soul she’s slept through about three alarms, there were people banging on the door because she’s so exhausted,’ Lorraine laughed as she addressed Mollie’s no show.
‘There’s lots of lifts in this dance,’ AJ explained. ‘We’re training 12 hours a day.’
Poor Mollie just needed some shut eye.
‘She is on her way,’ Lorraine told viewers. ‘She’ll be here at the end of the show – she’s doing her hair and make up in the car.
The couple are gearing up for their appearance on the Blackpool dance floor this weekend, so it’s no wondre Mollie is pulling out all the stops.

‘I’ve been trying to explain how exciting it is but you can’t, I have to take her there and show it,’ AJ said. ‘She’s doing absolutely fantastic. Being a non dancer to being able to perform these routines is phenomenal.’
He also joked he’s had to drum out of her the dance moves she used to do in The Saturdays.
‘Day one was “we’re going to learn how to walk again and remove all the step points”,’ he joked.
