Strictly Come Dancing’s Niktia Kuzmin has recently disclosed that he is still in touch with his celebrity dance partners from the show.
During his debut series in 2021, he was paired with Tilly Ramsey and in the last series, he danced with Ellie Simmonds.
Niktia spoke about his close relationship with his dance partners during his recent appearance on BBC Breakfast.
The 25-year-old Ukrainian dancer and choreographer said, “I don’t feel like I let go of any of my partners.
They say it’s a friendship for life, but I really believe in that.
I still speak to Tils and Ellie.”
Nikitia also revealed that he would like to see TV presenter Graham Norton on the dancefloor in the upcoming series.
He said, “I really wish to have Graham Norton, just because I think it would be really good entertainment.
I love his show, and I think he’ll be really good television.
Graham, come to me baby.”
The Strictly Professionals UK tour, which will showcase 10 of the world’s best professional dancers, will start next month.
Niktia, along with Dianne Buswell, Vito Coppola, Carlos Gu, Karen Hauer, Neil Jones, Gorka Marquez, Luba Mushtuk, Jowita Przystal, and Nancy Xu, will perform world-class dance, stunning choreography, and glamorous costumes live and up close.
Niktia shared what fans can expect from the show, “We’re doing so many exciting numbers.
I can’t remember the last time I was excited every single day to go to rehearsals.
A lot of the numbers audiences have seen on the Strictly, but there are also new numbers.
We’re trying some new lifts which we’ve never done before, and we want to impress everyone.”
While the official line-up for the upcoming series of Strictly Come Dancing has not yet been announced, fans can expect the show to return to BBC One later this year.
