She continued: “My face is like burning. It’s itchy, it’s dry. It’s just the worst sensation ever.

“Can’t pop to a Boots. Um don’t think they have a Boots here but even if they did I can’t pop to Boots.

“I need to order some ice and take hay fever tablets.”

AJ then shouted out in pain before saying she was going to “try and ignore it”.

She added: “I just need something for this allergic reaction. My face is just a mess.”

AJ then joked: “It feels awful, you don’t need to see this. You don’t deserve this. I hope you’re all well.

“Recommendations for allergies, hit me up.”

It comes after AJ was forced to pull out of the Strictly live tour due to her ankle injury.

Last month, AJ and her Strictly partner Kai Widdrington missed out on the final after she suffered the injury just days before.
