AJ Pritchard 's girlfriend Abbie Quinnen has revealed she's received death threats from hardcore fans of his.

The 23-year-old dancer said she has been hit with nasty comments from trolls since her romance with the former Strictly Come Dancing pro was confirmed.

AJ is currently competing in this year's series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! which is taking place in Wales, instead of Australia.

Speaking about the backlash, Abbie said: "Because he is in the public eye and with everyone watching I’m a Celebrity, there is definitely more abuse.

"Everyone loves AJ and wants him to be their boyfriend," the blonde continued.

"I find it so hard reading the comments I get on social media. AJ has been very supportive and tells me not to read it.

"I try to keep really positive as I know how much happiness he brings to lots of people which makes me really happy."

On receiving awful, death threats, she added to The Mirror : "It's crazy that some people have this streak in them and they want to ruin people’s lives."

AJ revealed in March of this year that he would be quitting his role on BBC's Strictly Come Dancing to pursue a career in presenting.

But his latest career move sees him competing for the title of King of the Castle in I'm A Celeb.

He has already been the talk of the show following his awkward moment with fellow campmate Shane Richie.

Viewers claimed AJ was giving the former EastEnders actor "evils" when he threw his bowl and cutlery on the floor to be cleaned.

And now Shane's son from his marriage to Coleen Nolan, Shane Jnr, has spoken out about the incident.

Referring to his row with AJ Pritchard over cleaning the pans, Shane said: "He ain't gonna be everyone's cup of tea, I know that. But when it is unjust and you see people slate your dad it is hard.

"Granted he cannot clean, my step mum will vouch for that and everyone can vouch for that. AJ was a little b**ch talking about him, back off. But he probably could have done better.

"He didn't do the washing up properly, so what? He did get on my t*ts a bit AJ."
