AJ Odudu wows in ultra-fitted red latex dress at Comic Relief
Presenter AJ Odudu turned heads on Friday evening as she hosted Comic Relief in an eye-catching red latex dress. The comfortable, fitted midi dress showed off the 35-year-old’s toned figure and caught the attention of many fans on social media. With stars such as David Tennant, Joel Dommett, Paddy McGuinness, and Zoe Ball by her side, AJ made quite the impression on stage.
Raising money for charity
Comic Relief is an annual TV programme that returns to the BBC every year to raise money for charity. From celebrity sketches to segments, the show raises funds for issues such as homelessness and food poverty in the UK and globally. AJ and her co-hosts worked diligently to ensure the event was a success.
Although the bright red latex dress matched the Red Nose Day theme, opinions regarding the outfit choice were split. Some fans praised AJ and her decision to wear the latex dress, while others were more concerned about the outfit’s practicality, especially when it came to movement.
The dress, which featured a sleeveless design and a high neck, was paired with strapped red high heels. AJ pulled her hair back into a sleek ponytail and opted for a minimalist makeup look to let the dress do the talking.
Response on social media
While some viewers took to social media to praise AJ’s dress, others were more curious about the outfit’s possible impracticalities. Viewers questioned how AJ could move around in the dress and how she managed to get into it in the first place.
Despite these concerns, most agreed that AJ looked ‘stunning’ in the dress, with many users taking to Twitter to voice their opinions.
Viewers faced a different challenge upon tuning into BBC One to watch the charity fundraiser kick off. Instead of seeing the likes of Sir Lenny Henry and David Tennant, the BBC Two feed was airing, showing footage from ‘Saving Lives At Sea’. This caused confusion among viewers as they turned to social media to enquire.
‘Comic Relief didn’t get shown on @BBCScotland – was some other programme at the start before they cut to the intro with all 5 presenters,’ tweeted one viewer.
