She's always been a girl who knows how to impress but before lighting up the dance floor on hit show Strictly Nadiya Bychkova has a wild life – which included modelling for Playboy.
Strictly Come Dancing pro Nadiya has been impressing the judges with partner Dan Walker since the series began in September – but she's had a lot of practice.
Born on August 24 1989, Nadiya is a Ukrainian-Slovenian ballroom and Latin dancer, winning the World Champion and European Championship awards twice for Ballroom and Latin '10' dance.
She also took part in the Bosnian version of Strictly Come Dancing.
However before joining Strictly, Nadiya was a Playboy model and in 2015, she took part in a sexy photoshoot on the beach for the magazine.
The beautiful Ukrainian dancer modelled naked in a series of sizzling snaps including standing naked by a tree, posing on the beach in a thin thong and climbing a palm tree, showing off her toned figure.
Known on her Strictly Come Dancing profile as 'the blonde bombshell of Strictly', Nadiya has danced with celebrities including Blue singer Lee Ryan and EastEnders actor Davood Ghadami.
In 2017, viewers went wild for the chemistry between her and Davood, with Bruno Tonioli even referring to one of their dances as 'a race to the bedroom'.
However, Davood dispelled the chemistry rumours, saying to The Mirror "People will say things. As long as you know the truth and the people you love know the truth it shouldn’t matter. I guess I did learn that.”
Though he and Nadiya were not struck by the so-called 'Strictly Curse', The Mirror reported that Nadiya's ex Miha Vodicar sent a warning to Davood's wife saying, "Once she decides who she wants, that is it."
Miha first met Nadiya in 2007, but he said that she left him three years later for model Pete Klinc, with who she was partnered on a Slovenian dance show.
Nadiya is currently engaged to her fiancé, the Slovenian football player Matija Skarabot, with whom she has a four-year-old daughter called Mila.
Although she keeps her life private, she occasionally shares photos of her fiancé on social media.
In one post for his birthday in February, she shared a beautiful photo of them dressed up at a party, saying in the caption, ""Happy birthday to a very special man in my life.
"Thank you for everything, thank you for our beautiful daughter, thank you for supporting me in everything I do, thank you for letting me follow my dreams and thank you for believing in me sometimes even more than I believe in myself, thank you for YOU I wish you to reach your goals and the most of all I wish you happiness."
