Nadiya kept her promise

The dad-of-three was also asked why he didn't join the cast this year. "I really enjoyed Strictly this year with @nadiyabychkova but I said no to the tour because 1. I only expected to be away from my family for three weeks and it became three months. 2. I just have too much work on."

The tour comes days after news of Nadiya's split from fiancé Matija Škarabot was announced. The blonde beauty is said to have ended her engagement after struggling with a long-distance relationship.
