Tilly Ramsay’s dance partner in hot water with girlfriend after he wasn’t home to see her amid romance rumors
Newcomer STRICTLY Nikita Kuzmin might be in trouble with his girlfriend – as he hasn’t returned home yet.
His dancing partner Nicole Wirt is in his native Germany and hoped he would return after quitting the ballroom competition.
The Ukrainian Strictly pro, 23, got the boot last week with famous dance partner Tilly Ramsay – but has yet to arrive.
It comes after months of rumors that he had become close to chef Gordon Ramsay’s daughter, 20.
Insiders say he has not visited his girlfriend of five years due to new quarantine rules he would have to follow when leaving and entering the UK.
As a result, that would mean he wouldn’t be available for band rehearsals with the BBC1 Christmas special, which has yet to be filmed.
A source from the show said of the controversial decision to stay away from Nikita: “It raised a few eyebrows, especially Nicole’s.
“She was hoping that as soon as Nikita finished competing, he would be on the first flight to Germany to see her.
“But the new variant of Covid, and the rules around getting in and out of the country and testing, meant he would miss rehearsal time, so he had to drop any plans for the time being.”
Earlier in the series, Nikita and Tilly spent a cozy night together in an apartment.
Our snaps from September showed the smiling pair arriving in separate cars before TikTok star Tilly let Nikita into the south London flat.
