Strictly’s Nadiya Bychkova and Kai Widdrington ‘have been dating for months’

Strictly Come Dancing co-stars Nadiya Bychkova and Kai Widdrington have reportedly been dating for months.

Rumours around the pair first started in mid-January following the news that Nadiya had reportedly split from her fiancé Matija Škarabot, who is the father of her five year old daughter Mila, several months ago.

Now, The Sun Online has obtained photos of Nadiya, 32, and Kai, 26, looking close as they checked into a hotel together during the Strictly Live Tour.

A source told the publication: “It was low-key at first but they can’t help it now – they’re very much together. 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.”

While an onlooker added: “Kai and Nadiya didn’t seem at all secretive about their relationship – they’re a couple like any other.”

OK! Online has approached both Kai and Nadiya's representatives for further comment.

Nadiya took part in the TV series with BBC presenter Dan Walker, 44, while Kai competed with AJ Odudu, 33.

Since the news around Kai and Nadiya started circling, AJ is said to be "shocked" to learn that her former dance partner is "moving on".

"AJ and Kai got really close during the show, and their chemistry was electric," a source told the same publication.

Referencing AJ's ankle injury, they continued: "She's obviously gutted not to be on the tour while her ankle heals, and she is shocked that Kai has already seemingly moved on by comforting Nadiya."

It was added by the publication that Nadiya has "raised eyebrows" with her "incredibly flirty" behaviour.

Nadiya and Matija were said to have split while she took part in Strictly Come Dancing in 2021.

A source told MailOnline: "Nadiya and Matija haven't been together for some time now. Matija is dedicated to his footballing career in Slovenia and Nadiya is 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.

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