Strictly blow as lovers Kai and Nadiya snub the professional dancers tour to do their own one
STRICTLY Come Dancing fans have a big decision to make - as real-life pro couple Kai Widdrington and Nadiya Bychkova swerve the official tour for their own show.  Both theatre tours hit the road next year, with Kai and Nadiya making the most of their fairytale romance with an 11-date titled Once Upon A Time from late March until the beginning of May.  However, this is a direct clash with rehearsals and initial performances of the official Strictly Come Dancing: The Professionals tour, which starts at Hull Bonus arena on May 2nd.  It will continue to cover the whole of the UK, including a three-day stint at the London Palladium, before finishing at Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena on May 30th.  As a result, they won’t be able to make it, proving a knock for both fans and the show itself, seeing as they are two of Strictly’s most prominent professional dancers.  Dianne Buswell, Vito Coppola, Carlos Gu, Karen Hauer, Neil Jones, Nikita Kuzmin, Gorka Marquez, Luba Mushtuk, Jowita Przystal and Nancy Xu have all been confirmed to perform in the upcoming 31-date official show.  Nadiya and Kai went public with their romance earlier this year, following Nadiya’s split from footballer fianceé ​Matija Škarabot ​in 2021.  When taking part in the Strictly tour last year, Kai was first spotted comforting her. After initially keeping their relationship a secret, they are now regular faces on red carpets including the Black Adam premiere in September, and frequently jet off on romantic holidays together.
