Over their nine year competitive career they have set records by becoming the National Youth Latin Champions for three years in a row from 2012 - 2014 in the two biggest British competitions and uniquely they have been champions in both the Ballroom and Latin syllabuses. When Strictly Come Dancing first started in 2004, AJ was only aged nine and he has grown up watching the series.

AJ said, “Watch out Strictly, here I come, it is going to be amazing and I feel ecstatic!”

 

Chloe Hewitt


Chloe is aged 20 making her the youngest ever dancer to take part in Strictly Come Dancing. Born in Chester, Chloe was aged eight when Strictly Come Dancing first aired on TV. After watching the show, she decided to take up dancing and started going to Ballroom and Latin lessons. Last year, Chloe and her fellow dance partner AJ Pritchard won one of the biggest championships in the world to become British Open Youth Latin Champions. That same year they also became European Youth Latin Champions. Over their nine year competitive career they have set records by becoming the National Youth Latin Champions for three years in a row from 2012-2014 in the two biggest British competitions.

Chloe said, “My childhood dream of being on Strictly Come Dancing is now reality! The sheer excitement is exhilarating and I cannot wait to be part of the Strictly family.”

 

Neil Jones


Neil is the undefeated 4-time British National Champion, and the three-time winner of the World Amateur Latin Championships with his wife http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/strictlycomedancing/entries/f245a196-3e06-4dd4-bdc7-a9de97ff0226 - Katya Jones , who also joins the show this year. In 2015, Neil and Katya were crowned World Professional Latin Showdance Champions.

Iam thrilled more quality British dancers added to show and from competitive world as well

AJ and Chloe are young think they are there to be part of the pro dance routines (last year Kaya and Neil danced many of the pro routines with them going to the main part think these are their replacements for pro dance routines) AJ ane chloe dance 10 dance so added bonus

They are  a small couple of great talent but only just 20 so a bit young to have a celen I think
