Former Strictly Come Dancing professional AJ Pritchard, 28, caused a fan frenzy earlier this year with news of his split from long-term girlfriend Abbie Quinnen, 25. Shortly after, the dancer began dating Zara Zoffany, 27, but has now reportedly been dumped by The Challenge star after less than two months.
AJ met influencer Zara whilst filming reality show The Challenge in September.
Once confirming their relationship, the couple were often spotted in loved-up displays around London.
Now, The Sun has reported Zara has dumped the dancer as she “got bored” of him.
A source told the outlet when the couple fell in love on The Challenge, the environment was “very intense”.
Once the two returned to the normal world outside of reality television, Zara expected something different from AJ and was left unfulfilled.
The source reportedly said: “AJ was totally smitten with Zara but as time went on she got bored of him.
“It was all very intense on The Challenge and they fell for one another. But outside in the real world when they started dating it was all very different.
“Zara is really outgoing and she thought AJ had changed. She really wasn’t happy and ended it.
“AJ was hurt of course but it was for the best.”
Express.co.uk has connected AJ’s representatives for comment.
AJ’s highly publicised love life garnered him some infamy earlier this year when it was revealed just how his relationship with Abbie had broken down.
During lockdown, the pair had grown inexplicably close and even hinted at marriage at times.
Then in January this year, Abbie suffered a tragic accident whilst trying to film a TikTok with AJ.
A wine bottle exploded, leaving Abbie with second-degree burns on her face, lost part of her ear and a strip of hair on her arm according to The Sun.
The professional dancer had to undergo three skin grafts and AJ became her full-time carer.
She told The Sun she would often find AJ “hysterically crying from guilt and helplessness” after the accident.
The adorable couple seemed to be in it for the long run, but things rapidly deteriorated when AJ returned from filming The Challenge in September.
AJ reportedly had his phone taken away while filming the second part of the show and when Abbie got in contact with him again she claimed he was “different and distracted” according to The Daily Mail.
When he returned home Abbie noticed he was on his phone a lot, but not to talk to her.
AJ was allegedly caught messaging someone he had been filming the show with and shortly after left Abbie “devastated” as they broke up in mid-September.
