Fans of the Pritchard brothers are in luck – AJ and Curtis Pritchard have released a brand-new calendar, filled with professional photos of the siblings in an assortment of coordinated outfits. The calendar is going on sale to coincide with the former’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2020 debut, as he joins nine other famous faces in their campsite in North Wales. 

Hitting the shelves just in time for Christmas, the pair announced the news over Instagram, sharing a glimpse at some of the stylised photos from the 12-month selection. 

Turning his gaze to the lens and tugging up his shirt sleeves to highlight his muscles, the former Strictly Come Dancing professional, 26, modelled an array of colourful outfits for the official calendar shoot. 

His account, which is being run by his family during his time on I’m A Celebrity, added the caption: “The calendars have finally arrived. Mine and @curtispritchard12 Zoolander moment!

“We had an amazing time shooting it, hope you all love it!

“Our 2021 Calendar out now, our first one together! Signed options available. Link in Bio!”

On the cover, the brothers could be seen wearing matching denim outfits while throwing their arms around each other and laughing. 

Former Love Island star Curtis, 24, also shared a photo from the 2021 compilation, hinting: “They work as a great #christmas #present.” 

Rooting for his older brother from their family home in Cheshire, Curtis has made it clear he couldn’t be prouder of the professional ballroom dancer. 

When news of AJ’s participation in the series was confirmed, Curtis immediately took to social media to congratulate his brother, hopeful he could be crowned King of the Castle. 

He said: “@aj11ace I can not wait to see you in @imacelebrity I will definitely be voting for you to do as many trials as possible. Beat of luck bro [sic].”

Since AJ’s sudden Strictly exit earlier this year, the two brothers have been collaborating on more projects together, hoping one day to become a presenting double act akin to Ant and Dec. 

Ahead of his I’m A Celebrity stint, AJ confessed: “My push is to do more TV presenting with my brother, Curtis.

“We’ve done things on Lorraine but we would love to have our own TV show together. He is so excited and he can’t wait for everyone to see me in there. We’ve got a podcast now and he will be talking about me on that too!” 

AJ has also left his girlfriend, fellow dancer Abbie Quinnen, 24, back in England as he takes on the trials and challenges of legendary I’m A Celebrity campsite. 

The sweethearts started dating two years ago, having caught each other’s eye while performing on AJ’s Get On The Floor Live tour. 

Making it clear he would miss her over the next three weeks, he shared a sweet photo of their last few hours together, saying: “I hope to do you proud.” 

With a suitcase in his hands, he swept Abbie into a hug in front of the camera, before heading on his journey to North Wales. 

The next few weeks will see AJ form a team with the likes of Olympian Sir Mo Farah, EastEnders star Jessica Plummer, and Radio 1 DJ Jordan North as they tackle the challenges together. 

Vowing to be a trustworthy teammate, he promised: “I will be trying to come back with all the stars every single time and if I don’t, I think I will be disappointed.” 

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! debuts tomorrow night at 9pm on ITV.
