AJ Pritchard, 26, gushed over his girlfriend Abbie Quinnen on Instagram as they celebrated her 24th birthday in style today. The former Strictly Come Dancing professional called his long-term love “strong” and “inspirational” after she had suffered third-degree burns back in January.

AJ uploaded a photo of the pair enjoying a special meal overlooking the Thames near Hampton Court at The Mitre pub.

Abbie appeared stylish in a pink blouse paired with high waisted jeans and a pricey Balenciaga handbag.

While the ballroom dancer looked dapper in a blue shirt with jeans as he cuddled up to his hot date.

In another snap shared by the Strictly Come Dancing star, a number of lavish gifts could be seen at their home, as AJ ensured Abbie was spoilt rotten on her birthday.

Bags piled up high on their sofa showed how Abbie had received gifts from luxury brand Cartier and upscale department store Selfridges.

The birthday girl was also gifted a number of balloons including pink ones that spelt out “24” for the eye-catching living room display.

AJ typed on Instagram: “Happy Birthday @abbiequinnen.

“You have been so strong these past weeks. Your strength has kept me so positive when it’s been hard. 

“Seeing you reply to so many people about your experience & helping people come to terms with their struggles is truly inspirational.

“You deserve to have the best birthday to date… #loveyou.” (Sic)

In response to the sweet post, Abbie wrote: “Love you all the world.”

Fans also joined in on celebrating Abbie’s birthday as they commended AJ for being a “supportive boyfriend”.

One said: “Happy birthday Abbie, thank you for being so inspirational. Hope you spoiled her today AJ and thank you for being by her side.”

Another replied: “You two are the strongest couple out there! So glad you had a lovely day, and was able to celebrate together x.”

A third commented: “Happy Birthday to your beautiful Abbie, she is one amazing girl. Hope she has had the best Birthday.” (Sic)

While a fourth shared: “Love you both.”

Abbie has said she has cried every day since her accident in mid-January when she ended up in hospital, after filming how a glass bottle could be cut in half to be used as a vase.

The trick involved dipping a rope into a flammable chemical, wrapping it around the bottle and lighting a flame. 

However, the glass exploded during the dangerous stunt and engulfed Abbie’s upper body in flames, leaving her with third-degree burns.  

The freak accident was first revealed in March and a source divulged to The Sun that she had needed multiple skin grafts to treat her burns.
