Strictly's Nikita Kuzmin hasn't returned home to Germany to see his girlfriend


‘It’s raised a few eyebrows’: Tilly Ramsay’s Strictly dance partner Nikita Kuzmin ‘is in hot water’ with girlfriend because he hasn’t returned to Germany since being eliminated


Strictly Come Dancing’s Nikita Kuzmin is said to be in ‘hot water’ with long-term girlfriend Nicole Wirt after failing to return to Germany following his elimination from the show. 

Nicole is currently in her native Germany and had hoped the Srictly pro, 23, would fly back after being eliminated from the contest last week with celebrity partner Tilly Ramsay, 20.   

Insiders informed The Sun that the decision has been influenced by new quarantine rules which he would have to follow when leaving and entering the UK.

The Strictly Christmas special has not been filmed yet, meaning he would not be available for the group rehearsals. 

A show source said that the choice had ‘raised eyebrows, not least Nicole’s.’

‘She hoped that as soon as Nikita was done with the competition he would be on the first flight to Germany to see her.

‘But the new Covid variant, and rules about going in and out of the country and testing, mean he would miss rehearsal time so he’s had to shelve any plans for now,’ the source added.

Speaking on their last It Takes Two appearance, the daughter of Gordon Ramsay gushed over her experience. 

She told host Rylan Clark: ‘You know what, I’m so sad that’s it’s over but I’m also celebrating what we’ve done in the past ten weeks. It’s just been amazing and I want to look back at it positively, because that’s what it was, just the best experience.’   

Weighing in on her time on the show, Tilly credited Nikita for her growth. She said: ‘I actually watched back our week one dance the other day and then watched this dance, and I couldn’t believe it was me still. 

‘In that one I could barely let go of Nikita whereas in this one he’d managed to get me dancing around the floor smiling, shaking and just having fun.’
