AJ wore his signature curls slicked back and kept the sunshine at bay behind a pair of stylish sunglasses.

He was toting a black shopping bag in his left hand.

Abbie, meanwhile, carried a white fedora and wore her glossy blonde hair loose.

She kept her belongings safe in a chic brown handbag worn across her torso.

It comes after Abbie suffered horrific burns in a freak fire accident while she was filming a YouTube video with the dancer in January.

Abbie needed three skin grafts after a YouTube video she was filming with her boyfriend went horribly wrong and saw a wine bottle explode and set fire to her hair and clothing on January 19.

She detailed the fears she felt for her life during the accident while her beau AJ spoke about how ‘seconds felt like a lifetime’ when he attempted to quell the flames consuming her during an appearance on Lorraine.

And despite the ordeal, Abbie remained positive about her recovery as she said: ‘I’m doing OK a lot better than I was, that’s for sure. My face has almost healed now.’

She continued: ‘I think when it happened I was just thinking the worst, my face is never going to look the same again, I’m always going to have scars on my body.

‘I’m never going to be able to dance or perform and do what I love doing, so I instantly thought that was it for me. Luckily my face is healing really well.’

Abbie revealed last month that she struggles to find clothes to wear because she has to wear a compression vest ’23 hours a day’ and keep her scars out of the sun.

Taking to Instagram, the dancer made the candid admission, revealing that she is always left ‘panicking’ before she leaves home.

Abbie penned: ‘There’s only a few things I feel comfortable wearing at the moment and this dress is one of them.

‘Definitely am finding it hard to find what to wear at the moment as I have to wear a compression vest 23 hours a day under my clothes and keep my scars out of the sun.

‘I’m always panicking about what I’m going to wear before I leave the house so it’s always so lovely to get so many compliments from you all about what I’m wearing! Thank you.’
