AJ, 26, has faced trolling on social media surrounding his sexuality – something which his 23-year-old girlfriend has now spoken about.

While the Stoke-On-Trent-born star is competing at Gwrych Castle, Abbie told The Sun that she knows AJ is not gay.

“I am 100 per cent positive that AJ is not gay but he doesn’t like to put a label on anything,” she said.

The blonde beauty added: “He has said ‘love is love’ because he really does believe that ‘love is love’, and it doesn’t matter who you love, whether that be a girl or a boy.

“I support anyone who has a boyfriend and is a boy, and anyone who has a girlfriend and is a girl. I am absolutely all for it.

The pair have been dating since last year

“I am most definitely straight but I do believe that love is love.”

Abbie’s revelation comes after the former Strictly Come Dancing star revealed that he would be open to dating a man if it felt right.

Speaking to Gay Times magazine, AJ said: “You never know how times will change in where you are in your life. But it is always about being happy and being true to yourself,

“Like always following your heart – obviously listen to your brain – but really just at that time in your life.”

He went on to stress that he doesn’t see the reason to use labels, before adding it was important to be happy in life.

“At that time of your life, whatever you are, or wherever you are, things always change.

“You can’t ever say never, because you don’t know what is around the corner,” he added.

AJ and Abbie first met when she auditioned to be a dancer on his first solo dance tour across the UK, Get On The Floor Live.

Since then, the lovers have enjoyed sun-soaked breaks across the world – delighting their social media followers with loved up displays.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues tonight at 9:15pm on ITV.
