AJ worked in the stadium before finding fame as a TV presenter and relished the return.
She said: “I’ve bought Kai to Blackburn. You’ve made it, Kai. We’re at Ewood Park with some of my family.
“This is where I used to work, so it’s brilliant. I’m having a great time, are you having a great time?”
He smiled: “I’m loving it. Wanna kick a ball.”
The group then posed for a team photo with AJ and Kai on either side of her parents.
The visit was followed by a rehearsal in a Blackburn studio before they had bangers and mash at The Clogg and Billycock pub, with AJ praising their “proper gravy”.
