Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer AJ Pritchard has confirmed he is in a relationship following his appearance on Love Island: Aftersun.
The 24-year-old took to Instagram to tell his 430,000 followers about his new relationship.
While his brother Curtis Pritchard is currently starring in Love Island, AJ seemed to want some of the romantic limelight for himself too.
Many fans believed the cheeky dancer was flirting with his brother's former flame Amy Hart earlier this week, but now it seems he was just "making good TV".
Posting a shot of himself on holiday with Abbie Quinnen, AJ captioned the photo: "Feeling HAPPY..." along with a love heart and holiday-themed emojis.
Fellow professional dancer Dianne Buswell sent well wishes, posting: "Happy for you brother."
One fan wrote: "So pleased for you. Looking good together. Ps love the photo."
"Cuties!!! So happy for you both," wrote another.
According to The Daily Mail, AJ has been romantically-involved with his new girlfriend Abbie since "the beginning of May".
The couple are both professional dancers and AJ is believed to have met Abbie when she auditioned for his Get On The Floor Live tour.
It comes after AJ told OK! magazine: "I’m currently seeing another dancer [Abbie] but it’s very early days.
"I’m working constantly so I don’t get to see her too often, but I’m very happy."
