STRICTY Come Dancing pro Nikita Kuzmin was spotted on a night out with a mystery woman shortly before his split with fellow dancer Nicole Wirt was revealed.
The Ukrainian, 24, – who is paired with Paralympian Ellie Simmonds on this year’s 英国广播公司 展示 – appears to have fallen foul of the programme’s infamous curse after The Sun revealed the duo had split after five years together.
The break-up saw a series of cryptic Instagram messages posted by Nicole, who lives in Germany, 出土.
现在, The Sun’s exclusive images show 尼基塔 trying to disguise his identity as he left influencer-favourite bar Menagerie in the heart of Manchester.
Clearly a little camera shy, he gazed through the fabric to determine his route as he walked with the mystery female.
For her part, she continued to stride along the street confidently in her black heels and red dress.
Braving the Manchester chill she went tights-free but wrapped up in a black jacket.
She left her blonde hair flowing over her shoulders in loose waves and flashed a wry smile at Nikita’s antics as she turned her head towards him.
同时, the Strictly ace was dressed in chic all-black, matching his jacket to his trousers and trainers.
本星期, The Sun exclusively reported how Nikita and Nicole had split – prompting the dancer to move out from his London flat.
Yet only a few weeks into the new 严格来跳舞 series Nikita is said to have called time on their longstanding romance.
Now Instagram posts from Nicole published just last month have been unearthed, along with a series of telling messages.
One read: “Letting go of things that no longer serve you, will set you free #letthesunshinein.”
在七月 2021, it was announced that Nikita would be joining UK Strictly as a pro dancer.
About the role, Nikita said: “I’ve always been amazed by the magic Strictly Come Dancing brings.
“No matter what country I have found myself living in, I’ve never missed a chance to watch it.
“And joining it as a professional dancer is my big chance to make some magic on the most famous dance floor. I can’t wait to give it my all!”
