Speaking to new! magazine, she said: ‘Yes, I am single but I’m here to focus on dancing. 

‘I’d have been crazy to say no to Strictly Come Dancing. It really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and most importantly I really want to learn to dance.’

Nikita, 23, is in a relationship with girlfriend of five years Nicole Wirt who recently liked a post about Tilly’s training with Nikita before changing her mind and removing it, according to The Mirror.

Nicole, who is also a dancer and is currently based in Germany, was said to have taken to Instagram and shared a cryptic post of a split screen image with a single person on one side and the caption: ‘The Support’.

Alongside this was a photo of a large crowd which she captioned: ‘The congratulations’.

Nicole was then said to have written ‘Don’t be fooled’ over the photos along with an emoji of a person with their finger over their mouth.

She also shared a photo of Tilly and Nikita’s waltz from week one and wrote: ‘Cheering on my faves’ and said their performance was ‘mesmerizing’.

It comes after Craig Revel Horwood predicted Tilly might ‘fall in love’ with Nikita during their time together on the show.

He told The Mirror: ‘Nikita is hot, hot, hot. Tilly might fall in love! They look great together.

‘I would love to see Gordon Ramsay on here and having his daughter is the best, best thing. She looks keen and I can’t wait to see her personality…’ 

Chef Gordon revealed he gave his youngest daughter one piece of advice when she signed up for the show, notorious for its stars forming romantic relationships.

In an interview with You magazine in The Mail on Sunday, Gordon recalled: ‘I said to her, ‘Please don’t date the effing dancer.’ ‘

Tilly responded equally sharply to her father, saying: ‘Excuse me? Dad, I’m effing single, I’ll date who I want.’ 

Last week, pictures were published of the 19-year-old CBBC presenter enjoying a cosy night with Ukrainian dancer Kuzmin, 23, who is starring in his first series of Strictly. 

He was seen dashing into her flat in South-West London after a day training together in a nearby studio.
