Strictly Come Dancing star Tilly Ramsay held onto her dance partner Nikita Kuzmin for dear life, as he returned back to the live tour after testing positive for coronavirus.
The social media star, 20, welcomed her pro/BFF with open arms as he returned to the Strictly live tour, after he posted a selfie of positive lateral flow tests on social media, which meant he had to isolate.
Nikita took to Instagram and shared a cute update with fans in Leeds’ First Direct Arena.
‘We’re back, back together in Leeds,’ he enthused.
‘We’re ready for you, we’re ready to dance. I’m finally back, I promise I will not leave anymore. She’s not letting go anymore.’ he added while turning to Tilly who had her arms wrapped around him.’
He later pointed the camera to Strictly’s It Takes Two host Janette Manrara and asked if she was excited, as she cheered in the distance.
Nikita expressed last week how ‘sad’ he was to be missing the first half of the highly-anticipated gig.
He wrote: ‘So sad to be missing a portion of the Strictly Live Tour, but unfortunately I tested Positive for COVID-19.
‘Lots of luck to all the amazing Strictly Cast. Will be back as soon as I can :).’
