Reality TV favourites Curtis and AJ Pritchard have officially made the transition into the acting world.

The professional dancers, who shot to fame after appearing on Love Island and Strictly Come Dancing respectively, have now launched themselves into the dizzying heights of soap opera stardom.

The brothers have joined the cast of long-running teen soap Hollyoaks as characters Marco and Jacob.

The elder of the pair AJ, 26, began his stint on the Channel 4 show in March, playing mysterious dance school assistant Marco.

But it was when his yonger bro Curtis, 25, joined for his first episode last week that social media really started to take notice.

A scene from the debut saw the pair meeting in a children’s park and heavily insinuating they have some shifty plans in store for fellow character Trish Minniver (Denise Welch).

The clip caught the eye of a Twitter user who posted it to the playform on Tuesday morning.

By lunchtime, it had racked up more than 135,000 views and 2,360 likes, and it’s not hard to see why.

Here’s what people made of the Pritchards’ skills:

Some simply couldn’t believe it was actually real.

AJ quit Strictly last year to pursue other TV opportunities alongside his younger brother, who hit headlines coupling up with Maura Higgins on the Love Island set.

With appearances on Celebs Go Dating, I’m a Celebrity,Ru Paul’s Drag Race,Greatest Dancer and now Hollyoaks under their belts, we can’t wait to see what their next venture will be.
