The couple first got together in 2018 after Abbie auditioned for AJ’s Get on the Floor live tour. 

They celebrated their one-year anniversary in April when AJ shared a romantic tribute.

The hunk penned: ‘Your my Super Woman ❤️.. Happy 1 year anniversary ..’ [sic] alongside the cute picture taken at their final performance for charity routine Dress Up, Dance, Donate earlier in the month.

Posting a near-identical image to her social media account, blonde beauty Abbie, who sported a superwoman-inspired costume, wrote: ‘Happy year anniversary to this special one ❤️.’

Last month, AJ addressed speculation he is set to appear on the show, and claimed he was keen to be on it alongside his brother Curtis.

During an interview with the Mirror, AJ was asked if he was planning to visit Wales any time soon, as they quizzed him on an I’m A Celeb appearance.

‘We would love to do I’m A Celebrity together,’ AJ said, speaking alongside his brother and fellow professional dancer Curtis. 

Before AJ could say another word, Love Island star Curtis, 24, said: ‘I feel so sorry for anyone because when you’re in Australia and obviously everyone’s starving aren’t they.

‘They do the challenges for food, when you’re in the warmth and you’re hungry, you can get away with it.  

‘But in Wales, in the peeing down rain, cold, winds, horribleness, and you’re starving as well, I feel so sorry for them.

‘It doesn’t rain in Wales does it?’ AJ asked, evidently tongue-in-cheek.

‘It’s down for snow at one point, supposedly,’ Curtis cheekily told his brother.       

A source close to AJ confirmed to MailOnline earlier in October that he will be heading to Gwrych Castle in Abergele as he prepares to star in his first big TV project since hanging up his dancing shoes.

The source said: ‘AJ is really excited – he can’t wait to get going and for the show to start. It was always his aim to do more TV work after leaving Strictly and there’s no bigger challenge than I’m A Celeb.  

‘He’s an early riser, into his fitness and a dedicated person – he hopes being part of camp will give viewers the chance to get to know him better. 

‘The only downside is he won’t be taking part with brother Curtis, who he’s really enjoyed working with since lockdown.’ 

AJ quit Strictly Come Dancing in March after four years on the series, telling fans he wanted to work on ‘opportunities in the presenting world alongside brother Curtis.’
