"Then I put my compression vest on, which I wear for 23 hours a day."

Former Strictlly pro AJ, 26, who was with Abbie during the interview, said: "There are very bad days and there are very, very bad lows. And it makes me feel very upset."

"As soon as it happened, I kind of thought that was it for me. I just kept asking AJ 'is my face okay? Am I going to be okay? Will you still love me?'

"I was just thinking the worst, that was it. My career, what I love doing is completely going to end and I'm never going to look the same again.

"So, for me, I was just completely beaten up. I didn't know how I was going to recover from this.

"I'm so lucky that my face is still okay."
