SERIOUS beauty Nadiya Bychkova spent the night with her professional colleague Kai Widdrington – after breaking up with her fiancé.
The Ukrainian looked super cozy with her lover Brit as they checked into their hotel together for the dance show’s annual tour.
They wait for their co-stars 15 minutes before they start – to try to avoid detection.
Kai, 26, who participated in Serious last year, brushed off Nadiya, 32, as he carried her bag into the Dakota in Leeds.
The couple – who previously said they were “just good friends” – are understood to have been dating for several months after she split from the footballer last year Matija Skarabot, father with her daughter, five years old.
A source said: ‘It was difficult at first but now they can’t help it – they are very close. Kai was outside the hotel for about 15 minutes and waited until everyone else in the touring group had checked in – but Nadiya left at the same time after that.
“She gave him her bag, and together they went into a room. Obviously they are a niche item. “
Another viewer said: “Kai and Nadiya don’t seem to be hiding anything about their relationship – they’re a couple like any other.”

Nadiya, who collaborated with BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker on the previous series, became increasingly close to Kai, who was dancing with presenter AJ Odudu.
An insider explained: “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. Kai, meanwhile, is also brilliant and she confided in him throughout the movie. ”
They added that she “remains a loving fellow mother to Matija”.
However, sources say that Matija is angered by recent reports of their split and is contemplating a trip to the UK for negotiations.
A friend said: “He’s in Slovenia, lives with her mother and their child, so it’s a bit cold.
“He is very understanding but it seems recent developments have angered him somewhat – and he wants to come back for a proper challenge about the future.
“Matija is bound by football. He has also been playing in Italy recently, but he is frustrated with the way Nadiya behaves while he deals with things at home. ”
