AJ opened up about his girlfriend Abbie 

Chatting to the MailOnline back in January, he explained: "It's crazy as it's our one-year anniversary coming up. We get on so well because we both work just as hard as each other. She's actually annoying because she can literally do everything. Even when I was on Strictly last, she helped with the routines I had to choreograph for me and Saffron [Barker]."

The pair stayed strong during romance rumours between AJ and his 2020 Strictly dance partner, Saffron. Chatting on Good Morning Britain during her time on the series, Saffron confirmed that they were just friends, previously saying: "I just look at AJ as such a good friend."

AJ added: "She is a hot blonde also so I'm very happy when I dance with her... It's the profession, Piers. Obviously, if you want to make it work, you obviously do 12 hours a day in the studio. You want to do fantastic for 12 million people live on Saturday night. You work hard."
