Nadiya Bychkova showcased her dance-honed figure in an incredible photo that the star shared on Instagram.

The Strictly fan favourite took to the social media site to post a throwback image of herself looking fabulous on holiday in Positano, wearing a white string bikini. 

Blonde beauty Nadiya splashed in the water in the sun-kissed picture, with her arms above her head as she looked back over one shoulder.

Nadiya is always so glam

Nadiya's co-star and boyfriend, Kai Widdrington, meanwhile, posted three flaming heart emojis in response. The couple fell in love after dancing a routine on Strictly and quickly went on to adopt a dog and, as Kai recently admitted, to talk about having children together in the future.

Chiming in with her agreement, Nadiya added: "I always wanted to have many children". In the meantime, they love to enjoy sun-soaked breaks, as they proved earlier this month when they made the most of a Maldives getaway

Elsewhere, Ukrainian-born Nadiya posted a sultry video of herself soaking up the sun's rays in a petrol blue bikini. In the short clip, Nadiya could be seen relaxing by the water's edge, before quickly zooming in on the sea where her beau Kai tried his hand at snorkelling.

Captioning the sweet video, Nadiya penned: "Hi [waving hand emoji and laughing face emoji] @kaiwidd [white love heart]". The star, who is a doting mother to daughter Mila, who she shares with her ex-fiancé, footballer Matija Skarabot, was also spotted with Kai looking seriously loved-up at a glitzy Dune event a couple of months ago. 

As part of the shoe brand's 'Let's Dance' campaign, Nadiya and Kai dazzled London fans with a romantic live performance inside St Pancras station.
