The couple went public with their relationship in April

Nadiya and Kai began dating earlier this year but only went public with their relationship a few months ago.

Speaking to the Daily Mail's Weekend Magazine back in April, the Ukrainian-born pro confirmed that she and Kai had been dating "for a couple of months now".

She continued: "It's early days and we've been rehearsing for the Strictly Professionals tour, so there's been very little free time. But we're getting to know more and more about each other day by day. He's kind and compassionate and makes me laugh. I feel very relaxed with him."

The couple look happy as they took home the award

She also revealed that the budding couple have earned the support of their cast-mates, and had even gone on date nights to watch their fellow stars perform.

In the interview, Nadiya also opened up about her split from her fiancé, Matija Škarabot, who she shares a five-year-old daughter, Mila, with.

"You're apart for so much of your lives and neither of us wanted that. Unfortunately, we grew apart," she explained.

But she added that the former couple are determined to have a "good relationship" in order to make sure that their daughter is the "happiest child".
