Inside Amanda Abbington and Jonathan Goodwin’s relationship after BGT star’s shock injury

Jonathan Goodwin, a highly skilled stunt performer had previously appeared on both Britain’s Got Talent and America’s Got Talent – but it was a stunt on America's Got Talent: Extreme in October 2021, that led the performer fighting for his life.

Recently, Sherlock star Amanda Abbington shared the extent of her fiancé Jonathan's injuries.

Speaking about the incident, Amanda revealed that Jonathan had "nearly died twice" and had been in a critical condition for several days after a dangerous suspension stunt at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Georgia went horribly wrong, leading the skilled performer to plummet 30 feet towards the ground.

Amanda and Jonathan went Instagram official in October 2021, after nine months of dating, and the pair sparked engagement rumours at the time.

Here's a look inside their romance….

Amanda and Jonathan first hinted at their engagement when Jonathan added an engagement ring to his Instagram bio.

The couple had been secretly dating for nine months prior, and Jonathan told a fan at the time: "This particular love feels like the most wonderful safe and secure thing in the world”.

A source added to The Sun: “They’re head over heels in love – it’s obvious they’ve fallen for each other hard, even though they haven’t been dating long.”

The couple have enjoyed several trips together, including a holiday in Vienna where Jonathan referred to Amanda as "the Mrs."

Amanda replied saying: "I so love you."
