AJ Pritchard has thanked fans for their support after Abbie Quinnen's horrific accident
AJ Pritchard has thanked fans for their support after Abbie Quinnen's horrific accident.
The 'Strictly Come Dancing' star admitted it "meant a lot" for so many to reach out after his girlfriend suffered horrific burns after an online stunt went badly wrong.
Speaking on the AJ vs Curtis podcast, he said: "It came out that there was an accident with Abbie. And I just want to say just, for anybody that hasn't seen the story yesterday where Abbie had an accident, I'm just saying thank you for all the lovely messages and everything if you didn't see it in the newspapers. Thank you very much for all the love and support and the kind messages. I know we haven't replied to everybody but, yeah, thank you for that. And we will talk about it further down the line when we both feel comfortable. Just thanks for that love. It means a lot, your support, keeps us positive and keeps us all going."
It comes after Abbie broke her silence to tell fans she will "be OK".
She wrote on Instagram: "I am sad I have been absent in the last few weeks and haven’t posted much with AJ, we so desperately wanted to be able to share daily vlogs with you all but unfortunately I have had an accident. Whilst we were attempting to create a glass bottle into a vase following a YouTube tutorial it went terribly wrong and it resulted in me incurring injuries and burns requiring continuous hospital treatment over the past seven weeks.
"I really need you all to be careful with what you’re doing and if you’re copying any YouTube videos. I will be OK, I love you all ... I also want to say a massive thank you to the nurses and doctors and the Chelsea & Westminster burns unit for their incredible care and treatment. (sic)"
