Strictly’s Nadiya Bychkova, 32, has split from her Slovenian footballer fiancé Matija Škarabot, 33, reports claim.

The professional dancer- who danced with Dan Walker, 44, on the 2021 series of the hit dancing series – shares a five-year-old daughter with Matija.

“Nadiya and Matija haven’t been together for some time now,” an insider close to the beauty told MailOnline.

“Matija is dedicated to his footballing career in Slovenia and Nadiya is predominantly based in London.

“Performing on Strictly and the Strictly Live Tour takes up half her year, in the end the commitment to their jobs made it too difficult for the relationship to work.”

The source added that the former couple is focused on their daughter Mila and co-parenting the best they can.

It is also understood that Matija is no longer following Nadiya on social media.

The Mirror has contacted a rep for Nadiya for comment.

BBC Breakfast star Dan and Nadiya became great pals when dancing on Strictly and she said that he made her ‘feel safe’ and ‘to be herself for the first time.’

After the pair crashed out, Nadiya was full of praise for her dance partner as she reflected on their time on the show.

Nadiya was nearly in tears as she thanked BBC Breakfast host Dan for giving her the confidence and allowing her to be authentically herself.

Speaking on Strictly: It Takes Two, Nadiya said: “It was very special to me. I loved teaching him, but at the same time, I learned so much from him. You gave me the confidence in front of the camera.

“You managed to create that environment for me where I felt safe, and I felt free to be myself for the first time.”

She added: “Your friendship gave me wings to fly again.”

Dan was clearly taken aback by Nadiya’s kind words, as he added to host Rylan Clark: “I think dancing is one thing but friendship is important isn’t it, and I think it means a lot to both of us. That’s the ultimate complement someone can give to someone.”

After their exit, the presenter confessed he would have saved AJ and Kai as he heaped praise on Nadiya.

“By the way I would have saved AJ and Kai as well! The last 11 weeks have been absolutely amazing, I’ve genuinely loved every second of it,” he said, “When I go back to the first day when I was asked to dance in front of some glitter balls, at that point, if there had been a fire exit, I’d have just walked away.

“But this amazing woman grabbed me by the hand, and brought me out onto this dance floor. I’m not a dancer, but she showed me that I can dance, and that for me, this has been an absolutely incredible experience.”

She said Dan ‘allowed her to be herself for the first time’ The pair made it clear that they formed a tight bond when working on the show (
