Nadiya Bychkova and Kai Widdrington look giddy as they arrive at their hotel together


Strictly Come Dancing’s Nadiya Bychkova grinned from ear to ear as she arrived back at her hotel with professional dancer Kai Widdrington on Tuesday evening.          

The dancers are currently taking part in the BBC ballroom show’s live tour  and both looked giddy with excitement as they arrived side-by-side at Leeds’ Dakota hotel.

It comes amid reports that Nadiya, 32, and Kai, 26, are ‘very much together’ following her split from fiancé Matija Škarabot.

Nadiya – who was not wearing her engagement ring – looked typically chic in a leather jacket.

 She wore her blonde hair loose and added height to her frame in black heels.

Meanwhile, Kai wrapped up, layering a check shirt beneath a hooded jacket.  

The pair were first seen heading into the same hotel a night earlier, with an onlooker telling The Sun: ‘Kai and Nadiya didn’t seem at all secretive about their relationship – they’re a couple like any other.’

Another added: ‘Kai was outside the hotel for about 15 minutes and waited until everyone else in the touring party had checked in — but Nadiya came along a short while later.’

MailOnline reached out to representatives for both Nadiya and Kai for comment.

The paper adds that ‘Nadiya and Matija actually separated months ago’ and footballer Matija is ‘furious’ about recent reports concerning their love life.

The newspaper also claims that the pair enjoyed a dinner together in Birmingham during the tour earlier this week.

An onlooker claims they headed to a bar and chatted for two hours before heading back to the hotel.

The TV personality has been immersing herself in intense rehearsals for the tour this week, after her celebrity partner from last year’s series, Dan Walker, 44, became ‘pillar of strength and support’ after her break-up.

The dancer is single after ending her engagement to Slovenian footballer Matija, 33, as exclusively revealed by MailOnline this month.

On Wednesday it was revealed her partner on the 2021 series, BBC Breakfast host Dan, had been there for her during the split.

Sources close to the stunning dancer revealed that she has been confiding in Dan after accepting the fact that her long-distance relationship with Matija was no longer working.

Dan has been married to wife Sarah for 21 years and the couple have three children.

One source told MailOnline: ‘Dan and Nadiya have such a great bond and he has been a pillar of strength and support for her following the breakup with Matija.

‘The bond between them started during Strictly, leaving the cast and crew surprised at how close they became. They were literally inseparable and got on so well and this has continued even now the series is over.’

Another source added: ‘Dan supported Nadiya with everything, including her breakup, which only made their partnership stronger.

‘He even grew close to her mother and daughter, who really enjoyed watching them dance together on Strictly.

‘Dan and Nadiya enjoy a deep and special bond, which has really helped her to get on with her new life following the split.’
