The appearance comes after Abbie needed three skin grafts after a YouTube video she was filming with her boyfriend, 26, went horribly wrong and saw a wine bottle explode and set fire to her hair and clothing on January 19.

She detailed the fears she felt for her life during the accident while her beau AJ spoke about how ‘seconds felt like a lifetime’ when he attempted to quell the flames consuming her during an appearance on Lorraine.

And despite the ordeal, Abbie remained positive about her recovery as she said: ‘I’m doing OK a lot better than I was, that’s for sure. My face has almost healed now.’

She continued: ‘I think when it happened I was just thinking the worst, my face is never going to look the same again, I’m always going to have scars on my body…

‘I’m never going to be able to dance or perform and do what I love doing, so I instantly thought that was it for me. Luckily my face is healing really well.’

Tom opted for a casual blue denim jacket over the top of a black t-shirt, choosing to wear comfortable clothing for the day.
