The dancer was left with the scars after a freak accident and appeared on ITV's Lorraine this week to share a little bit of body positivity.

The 24 year old was doing a social media stunt with her boyfriend and fellow dancer AJ Pritchard when something went wrong and she was left with third degree burns.

After a wine bottle exploded and set alight while trying to turn it into a vase, Abbie was engulfed in the flames. AJ acted quickly by putting the flames out and calling an ambulance, but eventually drove her to A&E himself with his brother Curtis.

Abbie headed on Lorraine to talk all things body positivity along with fellow burns survivor Katie Piper.

The dancer even stripped down into a bikini, showing off her scars and explaining how it made her feel "free" to embrace her body.

She spoke about how it wasn't just hard for herself, but her recovery has been difficult for everyone to go through and revealed that there have been so many times where she would cry just looking at herself.
