His little brother may have been making news about his romantic choices on Love Island, but it’s AJ Pritchard who looks like he’s been lucky in love this summer.

The Strictly Come Dancing star made his relationship with new girlfriend Abbie Quinnen official yesterday when he posted a picture of the two of them on holiday in Crete.

The professional dancer simply captioned the picture “feeling HAPPY...”

New girlfriend Abbie Quinnen, who is also a professional dancer, posted the same picture to her account.

The two are currently working together on Pritchard’s Get On The Floor tour. Back in February, Quinnen posted about it on Instagram. She said, “Had the best 1st day of rehearsals @getonthefloorlive with@aj11ace We definitely have an incredibly talented cast! can’t wait for you all to see 💃🏼👯‍♀️🕺”

Earlier this year Pritchard took part in the first same-sex couple routine on Strictly Come Dancing. He talked about it and his sexuality in a feature in the Gay Times, saying, “You never know how times will change in where you are in your life. But it is always about being happy and being true to yourself,” he said.

“Like always following your heart – obviously listen to your brain – but really just at that time in your life.

“It is mad that everything always has to have a label, whether it be the clothes by designers or whether you are in a relationship.”

He went on to add, “As long as you’re happy, that is the main thing. It’s something people forget way too often these days – getting so stressed thinking about what other people’s opinions are or what they need to do tomorrow.”

Pritchard’s little brother Curtis, who is also a professional dancer, is one of the contestants on Love Island this year.
