We caught up with AJ and Curtis Pritchard and their dad, Adrian, for this week’s issue of S Magazine. The trio joined us live via Zoom from their family home in Shropshire and we’re pleased to report it was nothing but laughs from start to finish.

Adrian stole the show with his dry wit and cheeky comments (he paints a great picture involving some Speedos) while the boys stayed charming and bubbly throughout. 

AJ and Curtis also helped the team at S Magazine, doing their own hair and makeup and styling themselves with the help of our fashion team for our cover shoot at their family home.

We asked the boys what they had planned for Father’s Day this year.

‘We’re going all out this year,’ says Curtis. ‘We will be doing a lockdown Father’s Day festival in the garden – this will definitely make up for all the Father’s Days that we’ve been working all over the world and not able to come home to Dad. We can’t wait for him to see everything we’ve got planned.’

Lucky Adrian! 

But it’s clear the boys owe their dad a lot. From driving them around the country for dance competitions, to supporting them through their dyslexia – it’s obvious Adrian is a super-dad. 

 ‘When we were competing, he only missed one or two competitions in 10 years. He’s been to every single Strictly show. Even one a week after he’d had a hip operation,’ said AJ. 

The trio have been isolating together along with Debi, Adrian’s wife, and AJ’s girlfriend, Abbie – and it’s clear the whole family are very close… if not slightly unique.

‘Mum isn’t a normal woman – and Dad definitely isn’t a normal man,’ jokes Curtis.

‘If we were to ever do a reality show it would be very entertaining. Every time my friends meet our parents they say we are a different breed to anybody they’ve ever come across,’ adds AJ.
