I'm A Celebrity star AJ Pritchard 's girlfriend Abbie Quinnen has revealed that a hitman was offered £20,000 to kill her.
The horrifying death threat was issued when she and former Strictly Come Dancing professional AJ were appearing in a pantomime together in January this year.
Dancer Abbie, 23, was warned that a hitman had been given a list of places and dates where she would be performing in Peter Pan.
Abbie claims a friend had told her this was going on, having accessed the dark web – a corner of the internet used by scammers, hackers, terrorists and illegal pornographers.
The news sent blonde beauty into a state of shock and police advised her to hire get personal security.
Pantomime venues were also alerted during the subsequent AJ Live Tour, though the said hitman was never tracked down.
Abbie told The Sun: “It was the scariest thing that has ever happened to me.”
She “I didn’t know what to do.
“I told AJ. He was like, 'I can’t believe this is happening'. My heart literally dropped and I remember my legs were shaking.
“You honestly see this stuff on movies and you never would expect it to happen to you. We went to the police.
“My family were shocked too. I did play it down to them slightly as I didn’t want them to come running to where I was.”
Abbie was told by a friend in January that someone tried to hire a hitman on the dark web to kill her.
At the time, Abbie and AJ were appearing together in Peter Pan in Dunstable, Bedfordshire.
They reported it to the local police but officers were unable to trace the person behind it.
AJ, 26, was also shaken by the threat made on the dark web.
The dancer, who has been dating AJ for around 18 months, said she still receives death threats online.
She reveals all on the ordeal on tomorrow's episode of the AJ Vs Curtis podcast: "I’ve had a few comments on my pictures
where people write, 'Die', 'I hate you' and 'Why are you still here?'
"Honestly, it’s the worst thing as I actually do read them, which is bad as AJ tells me not to.
"You can’t believe there is someone at the end of their phone or laptop writing that.
"It does get to me and this is the first time I am actually speaking about it."
Daily Star Online has contacted AJ and Abbie's reps for a comment.
AJ is currently one of the 12 contestants taking part in gruelling ITV reality show I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of here!
Love Island star Curtis Pritchard's brother was seen receiving his luxury gift from home recently — hair curl cream.
He said: "It is very important to me because it stops my hair going frizzy, but also it reminds me of home, of feeling fresh and starting the day right."
