Now the dancer has bravely opened up about her burns in a teaser clip from tomorrow’s episode of Lorraine revealed in the Mail Online.
In the clip Abbie was seen applying lotion to her wounds.
She said: “I basically just have to use circular motions and keep all of my scars hydrated. And after I do that I use my silicone sheets.
‘Then I put my compression vest on, which I wear for 23 hours a day.”

Former Strictly Come Dancing pro AJ was also in the clip.
He opened up about how difficult life has been after the incident.
He said: “There are very bad days and there are very, very bad lows. And it makes me feel very upset.”
The couple, who recently celebrated their second anniversary, were filming a “life hack” video and were showing followers how to cut a glass bottle in half to be used as a vase.

Things went terribly wrong and set Abbie’s her hair and clothing alight, which caused third-degree burns on her body.
The blonde beauty visited the hospital 20 times and has undergone three skin grafts since.
Opening up about the traumatic ordeal earlier this month, Abbie admitted that she she couldn’t help but lash out at her boyfriend.
She told The Sun: “I did everything to push him away from me. I felt so traumatised, I hit out at the person who loved me the most.

“He was by my side from the moment I came out of hospital, cooking for me, rubbing creams and moisturisers into my scars four times a day, and telling me I was beautiful, not letting me lift a finger.
“He was keeping so calm and upbeat for me, but I was an emotional mess and I wanted him to be as devastated as I was.”
She suffered flashbacks to the petrifying moment she thought she was going to die and couldn’t bring herself to look in the mirror during her recovery.
Abbie added: “I didn’t even recognise myself.
Abbie said she didn’t recognise herself after the burns
“All I could see were burns all over my face. I didn’t know if they would heal, I just didn’t want to look at myself or let anyone else see me.
“It was during lockdown, but the doctors decided I needed to have one visit. AJ came in to see me, but I refused to allow him into the room.
“I couldn’t bear for him to see me. I also told him I wasn’t coming home; I was going to move back in to my mum’s.
It took a toll on her romance with AJ, she said
“I just wanted to hide from the world – from everyone.”
Abbie and AJ’s relationship has gone from strength to strength after they started dating in 2019.
They met after she was hired as a dancer for his Get On The Floor tour.
The beauty recently thanked her beau for a lovely birthday trip away.
She shared some adorable snaps with her 83.5k followers and said: “Best birthday trip ever ??❤️ thank you @aj11ace for making it so special ❤️.”
