AJ Pritchard's girlfriend Abbie Quinnen believes a robin that visited the I'm A Celeb camp was the dancer's late grandmother saying goodbye.

The former Strictly star, 26, is yet to be told his Nan passed this week aged 93 following a battle with dementia but the family have been comforted by the robin, which they believe visited the Welsh castle in honour of Angela's memory.

In an exclusive interview with MailOnline, Abbie, 23, said brothers AJ and Curtis would always visit their grandparents before doing a TV show or working away from home – just in case the elderly couple took a turn for the worse.

Abbie said: 'AJ did know that his Nan was in hospital when we were in lockdown. Unfortunately we found out she wasn't very well. He will be really upset.

'She's had bad dementia so whenever Curtis and AJ do a big TV job or a stint where they're away they always go and see their grandparents before just in case because they know how old and frail and also how ill she was.

'There was a robin that went in and robins are known to visit a relative once they've passed and we believe that robin was actually AJ's Nan and seeing that robin gave huge, huge comfort to the family so we were pleased the robin visited on that day.'

Robins are believed to be a sign that loved ones are still with their grieving families, with the bird in camp appearing just one day after AJ's grandmother passed away.

AJ's brother Curtis confirmed their beloved Nan had passed this week with a post on Instagram, which said she had helped him to become the man he is today and 'words cannot describe how much I love you.'  

Due to coronavirus, their loved ones, as in previous years when the series was set in Australia, can't meet celebrities departing camp.
