STRICTLY Come Dancing star AJ Pritchard’s ex Abbie Quinnen shared a cryptic post after it was revealed he dumped her for a reality star.
He is now dating his reality TV co-star Zara Zoffany.
Taking to Instagram last night, heartbroken Abbie uploaded an inspirational quote to her 88,000 followers.
It read: “One day you will meet the happiest version of you. And it will be worth it.”
Dancer Abbie, 25, tearfully revealed to Us: “I am absolutely devastated and my world has fallen apart.
“AJ is not the person I thought he was. After everything I went through with him, I thought we would be together forever. He has been the biggest disappointment to me.
“This has knocked my confidence after my accident and I have to rebuild myself now. AJ was my world and I didn’t recognize the guy who broke up with me.
“I kept asking him about the girl from the messages, but from the moment I brought her up, he changed completely.”
Abbie said: “A few weeks ago AJ and I went on a romantic holiday to Turkey, it was so lovely.
“We’ve always been madly in love. We spent every moment together possible. We had so many plans.
“We talked about getting engaged next year, looking at buying houses, how many kids we wanted, what schools they would go to.
“That’s why it came completely out of the blue when it happened.
“AJ was nervous about going off to film as he wasn’t able to prepare as much as others he’s done, for example I’m A Celebrity and Celebrity SAS. Before he went we had a really emotional goodbye, we hugged for hours and shed tears.
“I knew we weren’t supposed to see each other for three weeks, so I went on holiday with my family.
“At first we were FaceTiming every day, like normal, then he had the phone taken away from him to do the TV show.
“Meanwhile I had a great holiday with my family, I finally felt confident in my bikini around my family and friends which felt great as my confidence had taken a massive hit since the accident.
“I missed AJ a lot but knew he was going to be focused on the show and doing great like he always has on these things.
“When he finally got his phone back, he seemed different. He didn’t call as much and seemed distracted. A few days later he came home, it was the Queen’s funeral, so we went into London to lay some flowers. We had a really nice day together.
“We came home and saw Ferne McCann’s first-time mother, it was the episode where her fiancé Lorri Haines proposed to her. Then we started talking about how he wanted to make our own proposal.
“Then I noticed he was talking on his phone quite a bit and he was texting a girl who had been on the show with him.
“I only got a glimpse of the message, but it was something like,
“I need to talk to you, can we meet tomorrow?”
“I just asked him and asked, ‘Why are you texting her?’ and from that moment he was quite cold to me. It was so strange that he could give me no answer.
“He kept saying he didn’t have a clear mind, he couldn’t make any decisions and didn’t know if he wanted to be with me anymore.
“I thought we were madly in love and within a few hours he was messaging someone else and my world was turned upside down.
“After all we’d been through together as a couple, I thought he’d at least be upset about us breaking up.
