AJ Pritchard documented his emotional goodbye to girlfriend Abbie Quinnen and brother Curtis before he left for camp.

The professional dancer seemed emotional ahead of his I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! stint as Abbie and Curtis saw him out.

Taking to Instagram, the 26-year-old shared a sweet snap hugging his lady just moments before he headed for camp.

The dancer – who quit Strictly Come Dancing earlier this year – had his bags all packed and ready to go by the front door, which included two suitcases, one carry-on bag and a rucksack.

Sharing another snap with his brother Curtis, AJ admitted he’s excited to see what this “new adventure” has in store for him.

“Off I go on my new adventure! I hope to do you proud see you all on the other side,” he wrote alongside the snaps.

The sweet snaps saw fans rush to the comments section to wish AJ luck ahead of his stint on the show.

“Team AJ all the way, good luck mate,” one fan wrote.

Another added: “Good luck AJ! Rooting for you.”

A third added: “Good luck AJ! You’ll do amazing, I’m rooting for you all the way.”

While girlfriend Abbie gushed over her man, writing: “My hero! have the best time ever! Go and smash it,” alongside a heart emoji.

It comes just days after the dancer tested negative for coronavirus after fears he was in quarantine this week.

AJ tested positive for the virus just days before the new series was set to air, causing bosses to scramble as they came up with alternatives to keep the show on.

But it seems as though they’re not going to have to worry about that anymore, as AJ has now tested negative after self isolating with Abbie in Wales.

AJ posted a negative coronavirus test thought to be around two weeks ago when he started isolating in Wales for the ITV show.

But he confirmed he has now had two negative tests and will line up with the other nine contestants this weekend.

*I’m A Celebrity returns to ITV at 9pm on Sunday 15 November.
