Rumoured lovebirds Mollie King and AJ Pritchard have been snubbed from the Strictly Come Dancing live tour, according to a new report.

The pair, who were voted off the show last week, were keen to take part but allegedly had "no chance" with judge Craig Revel Horwood involved, The Mirror claims.

Horwood, 52, dubbed The Saturdays singer "awkward and wooden" in a previous live show, and didn't seem to be a fan of her rhythm.

King's fellow celebrity dancing contestants Gemma Atkinson, Alexandra Burke, Susan Calman, Davood Ghadami, Joe McFadden, Debbie McGee and Jonnie Peacock are set to perform in the 30-gig live tour with their pro dance partners.

It will kick off in Birmingham on 19 January and Horwood will be joined by Bruno Tonioli and Darcey Bussell on the live tour judging panel as last year's winner, BBC presenter Ore Oduba, will host.

The grand final of the series will air tomorrow night, where over 10 million viewers are expected to watch McFadden, McGee, Burke and Atkinson battle it out on the dance floor.

New judge Shirley Ballas, 57, will stay with the show, which shuts down rumours she would quit after just one series due to missing her family in the US – but she is expected to sign a £200,000 deal in the new year.

Ballas recently called out King and AJ about their reported secret romance, urging them to kiss on live TV after presenter Tess Daly called their romance "the elephant in the room".

King hasn't been too shy about her adoration for AJ on Instagram, however, sharing a throwback snap of the pair in their glitzy dance gear.

One follower told her: "About time you two became an official couple!!"

While another commented on the snap: "The cutest!! So so sad you're not doing tour but can't wait to see you dance on Saturday❤️".

The Strictly final airs at 6.30pm on BBC1.
