STRICTLY star Nadiya Bychkova shines like the show’s famous trophy – rumor has it she’s been banned from taking part in the new series.
The 34-year-old Ukrainian, who is with fellow dancer Kai Widdrington (28), was at the opening of the Bóha London restaurant in Fulham.
She is fuming because she doesn’t have a celebrity partner for the BBC ballroom show, which returns this month.
Nadiya, 34, joined the show in 2017 and has had a celebrity partner every year since.
The Mirror reports that she is angry and devastated by the decision as it means she misses out on the chance to win the Glitterball trophy.
A source said: “Nadiya lives and breathes strictly so it was devastating for her to hear that she wouldn’t have a celebrity partner this year.
“She was both disappointed and very, very angry.
“She has come to terms with this over the last few weeks and will do her best to support Kai throughout the series.”
“But it was devastating news for her.”
