AJ Pritchard has revealed his girlfriend Abbie Quinnen has "lost more weight" than he did on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

The 26 year old, who recently left Vernon Kay baffled after claiming campmates slept under heaters, spent five weeks away from home as he competed on the popular competition show in Gwrych castle.

During his time on the programme, the former Strictly Come Dancing star, who spoke to OK! online about his upcoming tour with brother Curtis, had to endure the harsh cold conditions of North Wales while going through the difficult, and often disgusting, Bushtucker Trials.

Yet, while AJ was put through hoops and lost weight before being booted off, he insisted his girlfriend Abbie still shed more pounds than he did.

Discussing his reunion with the 23 year old professional dancer, he exclusively told OK!: "It was so emotional. As soon I got my phone back I first spoke to my mum and then I called Abbie on the way to the hotel out of Wales.

"The next when I got back, she did a whole balloon, castle, red carpet bash. It was so emotional."

AJ, who recently spoke out about his clash with Shane Richie, continued: "To be honest when I hugged her – I think she lost more weight from the stress of watching the show than enjoying it than I did in the camp where I obviously ate everybody's scraps."

"She's wasted away from stress!" he added.

Abbie previously told OK! that she felt "lost without him" as he took part on the programme, which saw Giovanna Fletcher be crowned Queen of the Castle.

"I went to Wales with him and we isolated for 16 days," she told us previously. "It's been about two weeks since we were together and honestly this is probably the longest we've been apart this year, we've been in each other's pockets.

"I feel lost without him really."

Despite this, Abbie said she wanted to see her boyfriend scream more in the trials, echoing his brother Curtis, 24, who previously said he wanted AJ to "scream, cry and throw up".

Abbie said: "I would definitely love to see more screaming, 100 per cent.

"Just because I know that if I was in there, he would be 100 per cent wanting me to do all the tasks and wanting me to go through all of this awfulness because he would just find it hilarious.

"And I find it hilarious as well."
