Strictly’s Nadiya Bychkova unfollowed by footballer ex after it’s revealed she’s comforted over split by co-star Kai

NADIYA Bychkova has been unfollowed by her ex fiance Matija Škarabot following the news of their break up.

The Strictly dancer, 32, split from the footballer and father of her five-year-old daughter Mila after struggling with a long-distance relationship.

Matija, 33, remains in Slovenia where he plays for Slovenian club ND Primorje, while Nadiya is based in the UK for Strictly, where she is focused on the tour, which will see her dance with Dan Walker again.

He no longer follows Nadiya on Instagram, in a sign that the romance is over for good, while Nadiya hadn’t posted about him for almost seven months.

Nadiya, who was previously ­married for two years to Russian dancer Sergey Konovaltsev, has also stopped wearing her diamond engagement ring.

The Sun revealed how Nadiya has been comforted by fellow pro Kai Widdrington after secretly splitting from her fiance.

She also confided in Dan about the break up as they trained for the show.

Nadiya has since formed a “very strong” friendship with Kai, 26.

Last night a source said: “Nadiya and Kai have incredible chemistry, and a very strong friendship.

“Right from week one they ­connected, and are always laughing and messing about.

“Nadiya and Matija actually separated months ago and obviously Nadiya confided in Dan at the time.”

The pro, who made her debut on Strictly in 2017, struck up a close friendship with 6ft 6in Dan during the last series.

The duo were also firm favourites with Strictly viewers and got through to the BBC1 show’s quarter finals.
