Strictly star Nadiya Bychkova supported by Kai Widdrington after fiancé split

Strictly Come Dancing star Nadiya Bychkova is being supported by her fellow dancer Kai Widdrington following her split from fiancé, according to reports.

It was recently revealed that the 32 year old has allegedly split from her fiancé Matija Škarabot, a Slovenian footballer.

It's thought the pair called it a day just a few months ago, while she was still competing with Dan Walker on the BBC series.

Since then, it seems Nadiya has formed a friendship with Kai, 26, which is helping her get through the tough time.

A source has said: "Nadiya and Kai have incredible chemistry, and a very strong friendship.

"Right from week one they ­connected, and are always laughing and messing about," they continued to The Sun.

"Nadiya and Matija actually separated months ago and obviously Nadiya confided in Dan at the time.

"[Kai] has cheered her up and made her smile again. They’re great mates, and lots of people backstage think they’d make a really cute ­couple when the time is right."

Nadiya and Matija have a daughter, Mila, together and it's thought they will continue to co-parent her.

Rumours of the split emerged on Tuesday. Matija has unfollowed his fiancée on Instagram and she has not posted about him in seven months.

Matija is dedicated to his football career at Slovenian club ND Primorje and Nadiya is usually based in the UK for Strictly and the live tour that closely follows.

Nadiya, who was previously ­married for two years to Russian dancer Sergey Konovaltsev, has also stopped wearing her diamond engagement ring.

The most recent series of the dance show saw of Nadiya partnered up with BBC Breakfast's Dan and the duo became fan favourites.

The pair struck up a close friendship and when romance rumours began to swirl, Dan described them as "disappointing".

He said: "There was only one person I was allowed to touch in the entire production that night and that was my partner. I needed somebody to give a hug to, and that was literally it.

"The rumours about us were . . . disappointing. I know these happen every year on Strictly, and there have been instances in the past of the so-called curse, and it’s just telly. But it’s just not nice."

Nadiya and Kai's representatives have been contacted for comment.
