PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! AJ Pritchard's girlfriend Abbie Quinnen has spoken in her first television interview since suffering burns in a freak accident. The 23-year-old was filming a YouTube tutorial with former Strictly Come Dancing star AJ at their home in January. They were filming their own version of an online 'life hack' which sees a bottle become a vase that involved the use of flammable liquid but it went "terribly wrong" and Abbie became engulfed in flames, with her hair and top catching fire - resulting in injuries and burns. Appearing on Tuesday's Lorraine with host Lorraine Kelly, Abbie said: "I'm doing OK a lot better than I was, that’s for sure. My face has almost healed now."

The skin is unbelievable [in how it recovers]." Speaking about the time of the accident, Abbie explained: "I think AJ wanted to do this life hack, this home hack, what everyone’s been doing, to find something to do [in lockdown]. "We watched the video straight before we did it, to watch step-by-step and everything and unfortunately it just went horribly wrong. "I was stood about 4m away from AJ and it went up, straight away, it went straight across the room and it caught my hair instantly and then unfortunately my body as well, my clothes." AJ continued: "Seconds feel like a lifetime. When Abbie hit the floor and tried to roll and grabbed a blanket to put the fire out, at the same time I was grabbing wet towels to put on the areas, calling the ambulance, going to A&E, it felt like a whole year within a second.

. "As soon as I handed you off to the professionals at the hospital then I was a goner, I broke down." Abbie also found support from Katie Piper and Claudia Winkleman, whose daughter suffered burns after her Halloween costume caught alight. "They were absolutely amazing," Abbie said of Katie and Claudia. "I think talking to Claudia, I just couldn’t believe what her daughter went through. I think she went through 14 operations, which is so horrible. I hated having three."

AJ added: "She gave lots of tips and different moisturising creams [to try]. You read every pamphlet and everything’s got something different. "Just having some actual reassurance you’re doing the right thing, as you always doubt yourself. "Talking, something Claudia and Katie said, actually talk to someone about it because the same with ITV, the Get Talking campaign, it’s the most important thing. Us sitting here is helping us as much as it’s helping other people."
