According to MailOnline, the former couple remain committed to their five-year-old daughter Mila. It was reported that Nadiya is very much focused on Strictly and its nationwide tour, while footballer Matija, 33, remains in Slovenia.

In recent weeks, Nadiya has stopped wearing her engagement ring and is no longer being followed by Matija on Instagram. She last posted about him back in June, sharing a snap of Matija with their daughter Mila.

Although Nadiya is yet to publicly address the split, she has been sharing videos from behind-the-scenes of the nationwide tour. From her makeup chair, she said: "First dress run today… I'm so excited. It's an amazing show, I think it's one of the best shows yet. Everyone's getting ready."

Then at the end of the day after a gruelling session of dancing, the mum-of-one joined fellow pro Luba Mushtuk as they rested their feet in ice baths. "Go on tour they said, it will be glamorous they said," she joked.

The tour will no doubt be a welcome distraction for Nadiya. In December, the dancer came fifth in the latest year's series of Strictly with BBC Breakfast host Dan. She has previously been partnered up with EastEnders actor Davood Ghadam, Blue singer Lee Ryan and former footballer David James.
