AJ Pritchard’s dancer girlfriend required 20 hospital trips after fire horror

AJ Pritchard's girlfriend Abbie Quinnen needed three skin grafts and has visited the hospital over 20 times following her horrific accident.

The 23-year-old dancer suffered third-degree burns after accidentally setting herself on fire when an Instagram stunt went wrong back in January.

She'd tried to cut a wine bottle in half using rope dipped in a flammable chemical, however the trick didn't go to plan and the flaming bottle exploded.

It has reported that Abbie need more than 20 hospital visits to treat her wounds and she has undergone three skin grafts.

She suffered three-degree burns and doctors fought too save her arms and face from severe scarring.

A picture obtained by The Sun shows Abbie laying in bed covered in with half her ice, her right arm and her chest wrapped in bandages.

AJ is believed to have been with Abbie at the time of the accident and instantly began cooling her buns with a wet tea towel.

The former Strictly Come Dancing pro called 999 but decided to take his girlfriend to the hopsital himself after they were told there might be a long wait for an ambulance.

The publication reports that AJ's brother Curtis, who lives with the couple, stepped in and drove them to Ealing Hospital.

Abbie was later admitted to intensive care before being taken to Chelsea and Westminster hospital's specialist burns unit the following day.

The source told The Sun on Sunday: “AJ and Abbie were stuck at home during lockdown and, like many people, started making social media videos to pass the time.

"But this tutorial went horribly wrong. Abbie’s whole upper body went up in flames.

"It all happened very quickly. It was like something from a horror film."

I'm A Celebrity star AJ spoke out about the horrific accident for the first time on the AJ v Curtis podcast with his Love Island star sibing.

He told Curtis, 25, and their listeners that he was grateful for their support following Abbie's accident.

"It came out that the there was an accident with Abbie. And I just want to say just make it quite brief, to be honest," he said.
