JLS star Oritse Williams reckons he’ll make girlfriend AJ’s dream come true when they perform a salsa on ITV’s Stepping Out.

Talking to whatsontv.co.uk ahead of this Saturday’s second live show – in which one celebrity will be voted off – Oritse, who found fame with JLS on The X Factor, said: “Every girl wants their guy to take them to salsa on a Friday night, go and dance and do something romantic like that and I’ve turned AJ down every single time.

“So, I’ve already given her the biggest surprise by saying ‘Yes’ to this show – and this week we’re doing salsa!”

He added: “This show does test your relationship, put it that way. It’s easy to get on each others nerves. But it’s nice that we’re getting to be creative together.”

Asked how dancing on Stepping Out compares to dancing with former bandmates JLS, Oritse said: “This is a completely brand new experience dancing-wise for me. With JLS we did choreography to our songs but, with this, you have to train and I’ve never trained in any dance style ever before.

‘The boys said to me if anyone was going to put themselves in a vulnerable place, it’s gonna be me and AJ.”

Stepping Out continues on Saturday September 7 at 6.30pm on ITV.
