SERIOUS star Nikita Kuzmin was forced to miss part of her Serious to Dancing live tour after testing positive for Covid.
The 24-year-old professional dancer announced the news this evening and told fans he’s glad he missed out on some of the tours.
Nikita, who collaborates with Gordon Ramsay’s daughter Tilly, reassures fans that he will be back soon.
The dancer, who competed in the BBC One dance competition last year, posted a photo with her dance partner Tilly.
He also shared another snap of his three Covid side flow tests.
In the final image, Nikita looks very sad as he shares a selfie of the positive outcome.
The TV star said: “Sad to miss part of Strictly Live, but unfortunately I have tested positive for COVID-19.”
“Good luck to all the great actors.
“Will be back as soon as I can :)”
It happened after Nikita was discovered searching cozy with Maisie Smith.
Although they are not colleagues, the pair seem to have become very close when they are seen playing on the street together.
Maisie, 20, who stepped in to replace AJ Odudu and danced with Kai Widdrington, was seen sharing a joke with Nikita, 24, before he put his arm around her.
Celebrities touring are regularly seen having fun between rehearsals and Maisie joined in perfectly.
The former EastEnders actresses and Nikita even shared a video on Instagram to reveal that they were hanging out together.
Maisie giggled for the camera as they shot a brief clip of their time at the gym – which was posted to the dancer’s Instagram story.
“The idea is better than the execution,” Nikita jokes about the behind-the-scenes video, where they sit up one after another.
Nikita is dancing with Tilly Ramsay on tour, after going upstream with her in the competition.
He is in a relationship with dancer Nicole Wirt, who lives in Germany.
She supported him throughout the contest as fans speculated that he might have fallen in love with Tilly.
Tilly insists: “We’re just having fun. I think people are just obsessed with the Curse but don’t seem to realize we could be just good friends. And that’s all. people seem to have forgotten that.”
“I said from the start that I came here to take dance lessons and that’s it.”
