Strictly Come Dancing 2022: Professional dancers Nadiya Bychkova and Kai Widdrington ‘have been dating for months’

Strictly Come Dancing’s Nadiya Bychkova and Kai Widdrington ‘have been dating for months’ according to reports.

It was recently revealed that Nadiya split from her fiancé, Slovenian footballer Matija Škarabot, last year, with whom she shares a five-year-old daughter.

It’s since been claimed that the professional dancer is in a relationship with co-star Kai, who joined the BBC series in 2021 and was partnered with television presenter AJ Odudu.

The Sun obtained photographs of the couple checking into a hotel in Leeds after a busy day performing for the Strictly tour.

‘It was low-key at first but they can’t help it now — they’re very much together,’ an insider said.

‘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.

‘She handed him her bags, and together they went and checked into a room. It’s clear they’re a proper item.’

Another onlooker added to the publication: ‘Kai and Nadiya didn’t seem at all secretive about their relationship – they’re a couple like any other.’

Last year, Nadiya, 32, competed on the series with BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker, with the pair becoming the 10th to be eliminated in the competition.

It emerged last week that she and Matija decided to go their separate ways due to the commitments they both give to their jobs. Their long-distance relationship was said to be an additional factor.

A source told MailOnline that they hadn’t been together ‘for some time now’, with Matija, 33, ‘dedicated to his footballing career in Slovenia’ and Nadiya being ‘predominantly based in London’.

‘Performing on Strictly and the Strictly Live Tour takes up half her year, in the end the commitment to their jobs made it too difficult for the relationship to work,’ the insider said.

‘There’s still a lot of love and respect between them and Mila is and always will be their priority.’

Newcomer Kai was embroiled in romance rumours during the most recent series of Strictly, with viewers convinced he’d struck up a relationship with his celebrity partner AJ.

AJ joked that the rumours were actually slowing down her real prospects, as her DMs have been left dry.

Kai split from his dancer girlfriend Giulia Dotta in 2021 after five years together.
