They both cut casual figures with AJ wearing a sleeveless red vest to keep cool on the warm summer evening.
The former Strictly professional, 26, opted for cream shorts and had sunglasses hooked over the neckline of his top while wearing a baseball cap.
Abbie was coordinated with AJ because her cute playsuit matched the color of his shorts in the video.

They could be seen pacing back and forth, staring longingly at each other, before disappearing from view.
AJ revealed earlier this month that he is “closer than ever” to Abbie, six months after she suffered horrific burns in a freak accident.
The twinkling star confessed that their relationship has had “ups and downs” since her terrifying ordeal, but their romance is “going in the right direction.”

Dance student Abbie required three skin grafts after being burned trying to turn a glass into a vase for a TikTok video, and has since had to wear a compression vest to help heal her scars.
Speaking with the Sunday Mirror“AJ said, ‘It’s been hard, but it’s brought us closer together.
“She does well when traveling. I hate that word, but it’s a journey.

“Ups and downs and left and right, but in the end it all goes in the right direction. That’s all that matters.’
Meanwhile, Abbie hopes to appear on Strictly with her partner.
She said The sun: ‘I would like to be in Strict. That would certainly be a dream. AJ is actually teaching me ballroom and Latin now.’
And she’s happy to get some extra lessons from her sweetheart, adding, “Being a dancer after all, it feels so weird learning a different style that I’ve never learned before.
‘But I love it. It’s amazing, he’s very patient and that’s good. He is a great teacher. He doesn’t get annoyed if I can’t take the stairs.’
