According to The Sun, the programme’s dancers are divided on whether the pair should stay for the next series, with claims the pros are calling on producers to make a decision.
Two of the professionals – Nikita Kuzmin, 24, and Nadiya Bychkova, 32 – are both of Ukrainian descent.
A Strictly Come Dancing source told the publication: ‘Tensions are high and there’s a lot of strong feeling about this, some of the dancers would want producers to make a decision and say, “You can’t come back for the next series.”‘

Division: The Strictly pros are allegedly divided on whether Russian stars Katya (left), and Luba Mushtuk, 32 (right), should appear as they feel it’s in ‘bad taste’
They continued: ‘Some of the professionals feel it’s in bad taste to have them on the show, it’s been discussed among a group of them and they are concerned about it affecting the programme and causing a backlash.
‘Given they’re on the biggest show on television they are already open to criticism and they worry that this would only invite controversy.’
However, it is said some dancers feel it is unfair for them to be excluded based on their nationality as they cannot help where they were born, with the insider adding Katya and Luba have done ‘nothing wrong’ and are ‘gutted’ at the situation in Ukraine.
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Katya, Luba and Strictly Come Dancing for comment.
Message: Russian dancer Katya, who was paired with Adam Peaty in last year’s series, recently took to her Instagram story with the message: ‘Praying for peace and love in the world’
