AJ Pritchard, 24, and beau Abbie Quinnen, 23, stepped out for the evening as they made their first public appearance as a couple. The Strictly Come Dancing professional was joined by the blonde beauty while attending the press night of Somnium: A Dancer’s Dream, starring Neil Jones, 37, and Katya Jones, 30. The pair reportedly began dating last month after meeting at auditions for AJ’s solo dance tour, Get On The Floor Live. The BBC favourite dressed down for the outing in a black graphic printed T-shirt and ripped jeans.
He accessorised with a gold chain and carried a brown jacket over his arm as he glanced at his phone.
Abbie, who is also a professional dancer, wore a white mini-dress with black leather boots.
She added a black leather biker jacket and handbag to complete her stylish look.
A source recently spoke out about AJ’s romance with the performer, revealing the duo have been “dating for a while now”.
The insider told The Sun: “AJ fell for Abbie the moment he saw her and they’ve been dating for a while now.
“It’s very early days between them but their friends think they make a perfect pairing.
“They’ve been on a number of low key dates and were seen being very tactile with each other at a couple of parties during the tour.”
According to the publication, AJ and Abbie spent time together over the May bank holiday in London before the star left to perform on the Strictly Come Dancing professionals tour in Nottingham.
Elsewhere, AJ is supporting his brother Curtis Pritchard, 23, on his quest to find romance in the Love Island villa.
Earlier this week, the Strictly star addressed the “drama” on the ITV2 show.
In view of his 398,000 Instagram followers, AJ uploaded a funny photo of himself pulling a shocked face on stage at one of his shows.
Referencing his younger sibling in the caption, he wrote: “My face when I see the drama which tonight’s episode of Love Island is gonna cause. @curtispritchard12.”
AJ also revealed he’s “always watching” his brother on the programme and admitted he is “missing” him.
Alongside a picture of them both, AJ wrote: “Missing you @curtispritchard12… Always watching you… #family #loveisland #throwback.”
The ballroom and Latin dancer spoke about how “entertaining” Curtis is in a recent interview on ITV’s Lorraine.
He said: “I think the best way to explain my brother is that he’s infectious and everybody falls in love with him.
“As soon as you watch the first episode, if he’s anything like the brother I see off camera, it’s going to be an entertaining show.”
