A STRICTLY Come Dancing professional dancer was left fuming after being snubbed by her bosses and left without a celebrity partner.
The hit BBC One show is back this month, but Nadiya Bychkova has been axed from the new series.
Nadiya, 34, joined the show in 2017 and has had a celebrity partner every year since.
However, bosses have not given her a famous partner this year – a move that has left her in turmoil.
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.”
It comes after Nadiya liked a fan’s comment who criticized Beeb bosses over their decision.
The message said, “I can’t believe (they) are treating you like a bastard.” I thought this was finally your year to get to the finals and win. What’s wrong with you @BBCStrictly producers?”
Nadiya turned down the chance to appear on the Strictly Come Dancing live tour this year and instead toured with 28-year-old Kai for her own shows.
This year’s Strictly stars posed for a glamorous photoshoot ahead of the start of the new series on September 16.
