SERIOUS Dan Walker sent professional dancer Nadiya Bychkova a sweet message after he skipped his live tour.
Nadiya, 32, has begun touring at Birmingham’s Utilita Arena, but her famous partner in the previous series did not come with her.
But even when the BBC Breakfast presenter, 44, wasn’t on the show live, he made sure to let Nadiya know he was supporting her.
On Instagram, the Slovenian beauty shared a stunning snap of herself in a sparkling outfit.
She wrote next to the snap: “Tonight is the night! @Strictlycomedancinglive
Let’s do it “
Dan then quickly commented and wrote, “Get out there and do what you do best professional partner 💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼 Have a great night 🏻”
The photo comes as it reveals how Dan has been a “pillar of strength” to Nadiya after her separated from fiancé Matija Skarabot, 33.
“He is very caring and always takes care of others.
“He’s selfless and a gentleman.”
The couple split after struggling with a long-distance love relationship.
Matija, 33, remains in Slovenia, where he plays for local club ND Primorje, while Nadiya is based in the UK.
He no longer follows her on Instagram, a sign that the affair has ended for good.
Nadiya, who was previously married for two years to Russian dancer Sergey Konovaltsev, has also stopped wearing her diamond engagement ring.
COMFORT FROM CELEBRATION
The Sun reveals how she was comforted by fellow professional Kai Widdrington after secretly breaking up with her fiancé.
A source said: “Nadiya and Kai have amazing chemistry, and a very strong friendship.
“From the first week, they connected and were always laughing and messing around.
“Nadiya and Matija actually broke up months ago and apparently Nadiya confided in Dan at the time.”
The pro player, who made his debut on the serious site in 2017, had a close friendship with Dan 6ft 6in in the past series.
The duo are also solid favorites with Strictly viewers and have reached the quarterfinals of the BBC1 show.
