The pair danced an incredible Tango to I’m Feeling Good and viewers were thrilled to see them have the opportunity for one more dance.
‘OHMYGOD Nicola and Katya was EXACTLY what I needed tonight. Am screeeeeeaming at the telly,’ one wrote.
Another added: ‘Having Nicola and Katya back for one final dance is a good good good move. It was a shame they had to leave but this is a perfect nod to what they could have done together.’
‘Lovely to have Nicola and Katya back on #Strictly gorgeous routine and even if their run was cut short it was still a huge leap forward,’ one more said.
Nicola and Katya were forced to exit the competition early, after the pro dancer tested positive for coronavirus.
Speaking of her early exit, the athlete said in a statement: ‘Hey guys! I’m absolutely devastated my Strictly journey has come to an end so soon.
‘I had so much more to give and so many people to win this for!
‘But I just want to say a huge thank you to Katya for being the best dance partner anyone could ask for. She pushed me way out of my comfort zone and it’s been an incredible experience.’
Katya added: ‘Dancing with Nicola has been an absolute inspiration. She’s given her all each and every week and we were so excited to create more dances in the competition,’ she said.
‘Of course, I’m devastated to leave this way but I’ve made a friend for life and loved every moment of this special journey. I’d like to wish good luck to all the remaining couples!’
