STRICTLY fans are convinced they’ve “found out” who BBC radio star Nikita Kanda was collaborating with – and it sounds great.
Just last week, the 28-year-old host of the Asian Network’s breakfast show announced that she’ll be hitting the dance floor later in the year, and fans have already speculated who she’ll be with.
Strictly megafans have shared their predictions on social media, saying they are dying for Nikita to be paired with professional ballroom dancer Nikita Kuzmin, 25.
Fans said BBC bosses would be missing a trick if they didn’t bring the two Nikitas together.
One superfan shared, “Nikita and Nikita would be a credit…next is the Nikitas!”
Another posted: “I would be shocked if the producers dropped the opportunity to bring Nikita and Nikita together. Especially after last year when we had Kaye and Kai!”
A third added, “Nikita and Nikita would make a brilliant couple.”
The popular presenter will appear on the BBC One show alongside 14 other celebrities.
Nikita said on her radio show today, “I’ve got butterflies in my stomach right now. I’m literally like a kid at Christmas. It feels like Christmas Day. This moment is like a dream come true.”
The bubbly radio star took over the helm of The Breakfast Show in January, two years after joining the Asian Network.
At the time, she said, “It’s the only job I’ve ever jumped out of bed at 4 a.m. because I love radio.” Every day is different — you never know what you’re going to get.
“In the past few months, the listeners have become my best friends. I don’t know what I would do without them as they provide endless laughter and banter on a daily basis and are the focus of the show.
“I can’t wait to see more of what my producers like to call ‘Kanda Chaos.’ Be sure to join this crazy ride, I promise you it will be a lot of fun!”
The addition of Nikita to the Strictly group follows former Emmerdale star Adam Thomas and Love Island’s Zara McDermott.
She also joins actress Amanda Abbington, Bad Education star Layton Williams, Strictly’s oldest star of all time Angela Rippon, journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy, comedian Eddie Kadi and Irish TV presenter Angela Scanlon.
