DANCER Abbie Quinnen looks to have made a full recovery — a little over a year since being badly burned in an accident.
Abbie, 24, suffered injuries to her face, neck and right arm when an online video stunt went wrong in January last year.

She had to have three ops and laser therapy for her scars.
But Abbie — dating Strictly Come Dancing’s AJ Pritchard, put the traumatic experience behind her by posing in lingerie and getting back to her dancing.
She said: “Only recently have I had the confidence to go back into auditions.”
Last week Abbie and AJ joined Curtis Pritchard and Sophie Sheridan at Cheltenham races.
And the pair were also spotted at the glam premiere of Ice Age with Amy Childs.
Last year Abbie told Fabulous: “There was definitely a point when I thought I wouldn’t ever be able to perform again.
“After the accident, I looked in the mirror and my first instinct was ‘I’m not ever going to look the same again, I’m not going to be able to do what I love doing, this is it’. I didn’t feel comfortable in my own skin.
“I have trained since I was three years old. For my whole life, all I’ve ever known is to be on stage, perform, dance and act. At college, I trained seven days-a-week, from 8.30am until 6pm.”
