Who is Abbie Quinnen?

Abbie Quinnen is the girlfriend of AJ Pritchard.

According to her Instagram account, the rising star, 24, went to The Urdang Academy – an independent performing arts academy based in Islington, London.

Previously a ballet school, it now provides specialist training in dance and musical theatre, which means she's a performer just like her famous man.

Abbie's represented by Apollo Artist Management, a company which looks after artists in film, TV, theatre, musical theatre, commercials and radio, so we're sure we will be seeing more of the beautiful blonde in the future.

How long have Abbie and AJ been together?

AJ confirmed the couple's relationship status in July 2019, but it's not known exactly how long the duo have been dating.

The 26-year-old professional ballroom dancer, whose brother Curtis starred in the hit ITV2 reality show Love Island, hinted to fans that she was his new leading lady by sharing a sun-soaked snap of the duo looking cosy in Crete.

Clearly beaming with his latest love, he shared the exciting news with his 430k followers, captioning the post: "Feeling HAPPY," next to a string of summer emojis.

Abbie has also been pining after her boyfriend during his I'm A Celeb sting, as she shared a photo with the caption: "I miss you already 🥰❤️ @aj11ace"

The Strictly star was first spotted with dancer Abbie after watching co-stars Neil and Katya Jones perform Somnium: A Dancer’s Dream in London.

AJ said of the revealing photos: "I’m currently seeing another dancer [Abbie] but it’s very early days.

"I’m working constantly so I don’t get to see her too often, but I’m very happy."
