Strictly Come Dancing star Nadiya Bychkova, 33, was a vision of beauty as she donned a canary yellow gown to attend the Grand Prix Ball 2023 at the Hurlingham Club in London on Wednesday night.

The Ukrainian ballroom and Latin dancer looked so in love as she stepped onto the red carpet with her beau, fellow Strictly star Kai Widdrington, 27.

Looking ethereal in her yellow Elie Saab dress, which featured dramatic batwing sleeves, a plunging neckline and a dramatic sky-high slit, Nadiya swept her blonde hair into a sleek low ponytail, adding a slick of red lipstick to complement her old Hollywood glamour aesthetic.

The mother-of-one upped the ante in golden heels adorned with black floral embellishment, and she carried a timeless quilted Chanel bag in black leather to complete her head-turning ensemble. 

Kai, who is five years Nadiya's junior, looked equally dapper in a black tuxedo laced with satin lapels and a plush velvet trim.
