AJ and Abbie have reportedly been "dating for a while now", with a source telling 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. The couple were first spotted together last month when they supported AJ’s Strictly co-stars Neil Jones, 37, and Katya Jones, 30, at the press night of their show Somnium: A Dancer's Dream.
