AJ Pritchard's grandmother dies at the age of 93 but the dancer will not be told the news until he has finished his stint on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

AJ Pritchard's grandmother has died at the age of 93, his brother Curtis Pritchard has revealed.

The 26-year-old is currently appearing on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! but will not be told about her death until he leaves the show, as per the wishes of the siblings' grandfather.

Posting a tribute on Instagram, Curtis - currently filming Celebs Go Dating - said: "It is following our grandad's wishes that myself and AJ are to carry on with the current projects we are committed to.

"Grandad said to myself and AJ that it would break his heart for us to stop what we were doing as Nanna had such pride in our work.

"AJ therefore discussed with the family before entering the castle that if something did happen to Nanna whilst he was away, that he wouldn't want to be told until he left the castle and that in her honour he would complete his commitment to the show, with a view to doing her and the family proud.

"As Grandad and Nanna would have wished for, AJ will stay in the castle and continue making her proud wherever she is watching from."
