Curtis Pritchard's mother reveals that AJ Pritchard told his brother to apply for Love Island.
Curtis’ family revealed how he ended up on the ITV2 dating show while appearing on This Morning on Thursday.
Host Phillip Schofield asked Curtis’ mum Debi, dad Adrian and brother AJ of Curtis’ appearance on the show: “Who’s idea was it?”
Strictly Come Dancing star AJ replied: “Its an unusual one.”
His mum explained: “Curtis rang me one day and said a researcher has rang me and they’ve asked me to do this dating programme.
“I said ‘hold on and I’ll call you back in 30 seconds and I’ll ring AJ’ – because this is what we are like!”
She continued: “AJ said if he does any dating programme he needs to go big and do Love Island.
“So that’s how it started. I went back and said apparently you have to apply for Love Island – and he did!”
Pointing to AJ she said: “It's his fault, the turmoil is his fault”, as AJ agreed and nodded.

In the same interview, Curtis’ mum broke down as she defended her son’s behaviour.
Curtis came under fire from fans for his treatment of “half-girlfriend” Amy Hart, who left the villa two days ago after he savagely dumped her in front of the nation.

Fighting back her emotions, Debi said: “To see Curtis’ pain, and not even to realise the pain that Amy’s going through… it’s just so traumatic.
“I think initially, truly, both Curtis and Amy – it was real. Every second of those weeks was real, and the bubble was there, and Amy’s friendship grew and grew.
“Then when the bubble burst with Casa Amor… Curtis was out of the bubble, and stopped to think – maybe Amy’s relationship is growing at a faster rate than mine, and questioned it.”
