Nikita Kuzmin and Lauren Jaine have a light-hearted relationship with one another, with the pair frequently teasing each other with their loving tributes.

On Monday, Nikita shared a snap of his girlfriend as he belatedly marked World Redhead Day, with his partner sporting flame-red locks. The professional dancer posted a selfie of himself and his beloved taken on a holiday in sunnier climes, with Lauren hiding from the sun's rays underneath a blanket.

"Happy world redhead day @lauren.jaine," the dancer said, before joking: "Hiding from the sun as usual."

Although the couple are stronger than ever, they're currently having to spend time away from each other as Nikita tours the nation with the Strictly Professionals tour. But the pro has kept his fans entertained with plenty of photographs of his co-stars' antics.

It's not known exactly how long Nikita and Lauren have been dating, but they've been linked since last summer. Nikita first posted his girlfriend on his Instagram page back in October last year, but the dancer first appeared on her social media in August when they took a romantic holiday to Croatia.

Taking to social media in November, the flame-haired beauty shared a behind-the-scenes snap showing her, Layton and Nikita all donning purple outfits following the pair's Argentine Tango. Captioning the photo, which sees Lauren sporting a long gown that featured a cut-out around her midriff, the model penned: "Team purple!"
