Strictly Come Dancing professional Nadiya Bychkova has been getting a lot of love from her co-stars after reportedly splitting from her fiancé this week.

The dancer, who competed on the series with BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker last year, was engaged to Slovenian footballer Matija Škarabot.

Since then, she’s been posting snaps of herself with fellow stars from the programme, and it looks like they’ve been giving her plenty of moral support.

The 32-year-old posed for a selfie with Summer Dyason, a makeup artist on the show, on her Instagram stories, as they prepare to hit the road for the Strictly live tour.

She also posed for a group shot with a host of familiar names from the programme – including Amy Dowden, Rose Ayling-Ellis, Tilly Ramsay, Maisie Smith and Katya Jones.

She also thanked the ‘Strictly glam squad’ for a couple of presents, including a set of makeup brushes, before posing with Russian dancer and choreographer Luba Mushtuk.

It recently emerged that the couple had reportedly split, due to the commitment both give to their jobs and their long-distance relationship.

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.’

Both Nadiya and Matija declined to comment, MailOnline reported.

Nadiya was previously married to Russian dancer Sergey Konovaltsev, with their marriage lasting for two years from 2013.
