Amanda Abbington, 48, has spoken up about her relationship with her former stuntman fiancé Johnathan Goodwin, who appeared on Britain’s Got Talent. The daredevil, 42, was left paralysed after being crushed during a stunt while in rehearsals for America’s Got Talent.

The actress and her beau were friends for many years before they started dating.

Amanda has said that she couldn’t imagine her life without Johnathan by her side.

She has explained how the accident has changed her outlook on life.

The star said that it was a horrible phone call to receive, but that Johnathan handled it inspirationally before she revealed people ask if she plans to stay in a relationship with him.

Instead, Jonathan became crushed between them as they caught on fire.

Amanda told Jay Rayner’s Out To Lunch podcast earlier this month: “He fell 30ft and lost a kidney, broke both shoulder blades, shattered both legs.

“Third-degree burns, broke his spine and severed his spinal cord and nearly died. And then on the operating table, he nearly died again.”

Amanda and the BGT star became friends after realising they were both single following their split with previous partners.
