Ever the doting boyfriend, Nikita often praises his girlfriend in the comments section of her posts. Similarly, Lauren shows her support for Nikita by cheering him on from the sidelines of the Strictly ballroom. 

Earlier this month, Lauren made an appearance at Elstree Studios to support Nikita and his celebrity dance partner Layton Williams as they performed their Argentine Tango.

Taking to social media at the time, Lauren shared a behind-the-scenes snap showing her, Layton and Nikita all donning purple outfits. 

While the two dancers looked suave in suits, Lauren sported a long gown that featured a cut-out around her midriff. In the caption, the model penned: "Team purple!"

Lauren also shared her pride over her boyfriend's hard work the week prior. Posting a sweet photo of her and Nikita, who were both looking uber glam as they posed together in a restaurant, Lauren penned in the caption: "So hugely proud of you this week - it's been far from easy and you were just incredible."

In one post from September, Lauren posted a series of pictures, several of which included images of herself and Nikita. The caption simply read: "Happy days."

Nikita was quick to show his affection in the comments section below, penning: "Love you," alongside a red heart emoji. 

While Nikita is a familiar face to Strictly fans and has become a firm favourite since joining the series in 2021, Lauren is less known.

Like her boyfriend, Lauren does, however, have a career in the spotlight as she is signed to the model agency, First Model Management. She also boasts almost 5K followers on Instagram. 

Although we don't know too much about Lauren's life, it's clear from her Instagram page that she moved to London last year and is a Durham University graduate. 

Although Nikita hasn't publicly spoken about his relationship with Lauren, the pair have been photographed together in public, including on the red carpet of The Tina Turner Musical at London's The Aldwych Theatre.
