HOLLYOAKS fans were divided as Curtis Pritchard joined his brother on screen last night.
The former Love Island star who, like AJ, is a ballroom dancer by trade, joined the soap as Marco’s brother Jacob.
It quickly emerged the pair were cooking up a scheme to bring down Trish Minniver, played by Denise Welch.
And while some said they were “in love” with the pair already – others reckoned their acting was a little on the wooden side.
One posted a picture of a block of wood writing: “Aw aj & curtis’ first scene was cute.”
Another tweeted: “AJ and Curtis must have been Pinocchio in a past life – because their acting are as wooden as a marionette!”
Their first scene saw them plotting together in a playground, with AJ’s Marco pitching up late.
Curtis’ character Jacob told him: “I was begin inning to think you’d forgotten about me. What would mum say?”
Marco said: “Probably stop whinging.”
He replied: “True. How’s Trish?”
AJ’s character said: “Heartbroken. She thought she was going to get engaged – couldn’t have been further from the truth.”
Curtis replies: “Well, that’s made my day, that.”
