Strictly’s Nadiya Bychkova fights back tears as she describes how Kai Widdrington won over her daughter


STRICTLY Come Dancing star Nadiya Bychkova was overcome with emotion as she discussed introducing her new boyfriend to her daughter.

The pro dancer, 33, started dating fellow star Kai Widdrington last year following her split from fiancé Matija Škarabot, with whom she shares her six-year-old Mila.

Speaking on Loose Women today, Nadiya explained how it had been bringing Kai into Mila’s life.

Fighting back tears, she said: “It took quite some time, but he proved himself in all the possible way and Mila absolutely adores him.”

Nadiya and her daughter spent Christmas with Kai and his family in Southend.

The Ukrainian star said: “It was brilliant for Mila, which is probably the most important thing because my mum is away.”

The pair were also quizzed how they ended up getting together and they admitted that sparks flew after they danced together for the first time and it was “perfect”.

Kai said: “When we dance together, it just works, it’s not often you get that.

“She is the best person I have ever danced with and I am not just saying that because she is my girlfriend.”

Nadia added: “It felt perfect as dancers.”

Revealing how they first went on a date, Kai said: “I said, well you know, you’re pretty. Pretty gorgeous. Do you want to go for dinner and stuff.”

The couple will be going on tour together with their own show this year after taking part in the Strictly tour.
