Several days earlier, Abbie had documented a date she'd been on with a mystery man. At the time she didn't reveal his identity.

Posting to Instagram Stories, the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! star uploaded a video of herself sitting in the car next to her mystery male suitor, who was just out of shot.

Abbie asked her followers about whether she should pursue a relationship with the man, given that they both share the same star sign.
