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

Kai, who was previously a professional dancer on Dancing with the Stars in Ireland, split from his girlfriend Giulia Dotta last summer after five years together.

The couple first began dating in spring 2016 and friends believed that they would eventually go on to get married and have children together.

Giulia’s rep confirmed the news of the split to The Mirror and said that the pair are still on good terms.

Fans believe that the dancers have fallen victim to the so-called “Strictly curse” after it was announced earlier this month that Kai would be joining the cast of Strictly Come Dancing.

Now, the 26-year-old has been spotted out and about with his co-star Nadiya as they checked into the Dakota Hotel in Leeds together on the Strictly Come Dancing annual tour.

A source told The Sun that the pair were all loved up.

They said: “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.”

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