Strictly pro Nikita Kuzmins love life – dancer girlfriend to co-star romance

One of Strictly Come Dancing's latest additions to their professional dancer line up, Nikita Kuzmin, graced the ballroom floor with his moves and guidance when he joined the show in 2021.

During his first stint, he danced with Gordon Ramsay's daughter Tilly, making it to tenth place with the starlet and while they didn't take home the Glitterball trophy, romance was rumoured for the pair – though nothing came to fruition.

Nikita's love life has only accelerated since his shock breakup from long term girlfriend Nicole Wirt and some fans think he may have fallen prey to the scandalous Strictly curse, having danced with some stunning celebs in his short time on the show.

The Daily Star has taken a deep dive into Nikita's fast paced love life to see who could be next for the handsome dancer.

Nicole Wirt

Nikita's long term girlfriend Nicole Wirt is a professional dancer from Frankfurt, Germany. She proudly states on her Instagram, which is followed by over 4,000 users that she's a German Champion in the ballroom game, so she must've kept Nikita on his toes.

After the pair split, following five years together, Nicole posted a cryptic caption accompanying a series of bikini snaps, writing: "Letting go of things that no longer serve you, will set you free #letthesunshinein".

Nikita said he split from the German babe to "focus" on Strictly with his new dance partner, former Paralympian Ellie Simmonds.

"Nikita wanted to totally focus on this series of Strictly and decided a while back he wanted to end his relationship with Nicole", a source told the Daily Mail.

They continued: "They had been together for five years and it ended up being a mutual decision. Nicole is mainly based in Germany and she is getting busier with work."

Mysterious blonde

Nikita was spotted with a stunning mysterious blonde before he had announced his split from Nicole, confirming that the Strictly curse had come around for the German dancer.

In pictures posted by The Sun, Nikita is shown covering his face with his jacket as he walks alongside the the blonde bombshell, who strutted her stuff in a red mini dress paired with a black blazer and black strappy heels.

The supposed couple had stepped out of trendy bar Menagerie in the heart of Manchester.

Tilly Ramsay

Nikita was pictured leaving Tilly Ramsay's flat during the competition last year, but Tilly squashed rumours, saying: "No, no – we were filming a VT for the show. We really are just good friends and dance partners!"

More recently, Tilly and her brutally honest dad Gordon had a heart-to-heart about boyfriends on an episode of Celebrity Gogglebox. Gordon persistently asked: "Have you got a boyfriend, yes or no? Matilda?"

It wasn't long until Tilly gave in, confessing: ""Yes! She's got a boyfriend. Finally."

Although she didn't reveal anything about her mystery man, fans are still set on the hopes of Nikita and Tilly getting together, with one taking to Twitter to write: "So did that mean #Tilly & #Nikita?!"

Molly Rainford

Nikita's most recent rendezvous comes from this year's semi-finalist Molly Rainford.

Although Molly is dancing with new pro dancer Carlos Gu and Nikita danced his best with star Ellie Simmonds, the pair have reportedly gotten close outside of the live shows.

The couple are supposedly dating after getting closer at the National Television Awards earlier this year. A source told The Metro that Molly and Nikita "couldn't keep their eyes off each other".

"Molly and Nikita couldn’t keep their eyes off each other the entire evening. They didn’t mind who could see them flirting and chatting away – and Molly had a huge smile on her face," the source revealed.

An insider for the Mail Online added more fuel to the fire, claiming that the chemistry between the pair was "clear".

"The chemistry between them was clear and they even waited until they had both safely got into taxis at the end of the night", the insider confirmed. "But it appeared that they were making arrangements to continue the after party just the two of them."
