I’m A Celeb star AJ Pritchard’s girlfriend Abbie Quinnen was targeted by a hitman who was hired to kill her.

The alleged plot was exposed at the start of the year year when a friend of 23-year-old Abbie explained they had learned online that someone was being offered £10,000 – £20,000 to kill her.

The assassination plans were being plotted when Abbie was starring in a pantomime alongside 26-year-old AJ in Dunstable, Bedfordshire.

Professional dancer Abbie got the police involved, however cops couldn’t track down the source of the threats – which had been made online – and instead advised her on security.

“You honestly see this stuff on movies and you never would expect it to happen to you. We went to the police.”
