Strictly star Kai Widdrington’s Instagram gets hacked as trolls ask fans for money

Strictly Come Dancing professional Kai Widdrington has posted an urgent message to his fans after his social media accounts were hacked.

Taking to Instagram, he posted: “I’m sorry to everyone who got a weird message last night asking for money, obviously this wasn’t me it was a hacker who still has access to my Twitter which I’m working on retrieving.

“He is looking to get money from people so please don’t engage with my Twitter until you know that it is me. Will keep you posted.”

Fans were confused on Wednesday evening when the ballroom and Latin dancer, 26, posted a photo of a Playstation 5 console on Instagram, claiming his manager was selling a spare.


His Twitter account has also been wiped, with previous Tweets replaced with similar posts on selling a console and games to fans.

His Strictly partner, presenter AJ Odudu, also warned fans there was something wrong with Kai's account.

“@kaiwidd ’s account has been hacked,” she wrote, posting a photo of the two in the training room.

“If you get a dodgy message from ‘him’ asking you for money, please do not send.”

She then added: “PS. Our Salsa routine is the hardest & fastest one to date!”

Southampton-born Kai has had a tremendous start to his first series as a Strictly professional, topping the leaderboard with AJ several times.

Now, they’re heading into this weekend’s quarterfinals.

They wowed the judges on Saturday with their Couples’ Choice routine and they’re hoping to continue in firm form with a Salsa to Gloria Estefan’s Rhythm Is Gonna Get You/Get On Your Feet.

The pair have set tongues wagging with their undeniable chemistry, something that is always positively critiqued by the judges.

This week, even fellow professional Oti Mabuse spoke on the topic.

Appearing on Tuesday’s edition of It Takes Two, she discussed their routine with host, Rylan.

“Do you know the thing about AJ? She’s so good that people forget that she’s never danced before,” she remarked.

“The chemistry they have, they’re not even facing each other but you can feel it.”

It is rumoured the couple have taken their relationship to the next level, and although they haven’t yet confirmed anything publicly, AJ herself recently added fuel to the fire, liking a tweet about the two of them.

“Flipping love @AJOdudu what a top girl! Such a great attitude and lovely personality. I hope she is getting it on with Kai cos she deserves it!”

The Strictly final is only three weeks away, taking place on Saturday 18 December.
