Nadiya Bychkova and Kai Widdrington announce dates for fairytale dance show

The pair have appeared on Strictly Come Dancing.

Nadiya Bychkova and Kai Widdrington have released dates for their upcoming romantic fairytale dance show in 2023.

The Strictly Come Dancing stars will showcase their relationship on and off the dance floor as they shine a spotlight on their love affair with dance during 36 shows in the UK.

Bychkova said: “We have both toured with some great shows in the past so now to headline our own tour together will be something special.

“We’re really looking forward to sharing this experience with our fans and giving them an insight into our love of ballroom.”

Ukraine-born Bychkova, 33, is a two-time World Champion and European Champion in Ballroom and Latin 10 Dance, who made her Strictly debut in 2017.

She was paired this year with Bros singer Matt Goss, who was eliminated in week four of the celebrity dance competition.

Widdrington, 27, a Junior World Latin American champion, spent four years as a professional dancer on Dancing With The Stars in Ireland before joining Strictly in 2021.

Him and Loose Women star Kaye Adams went home first during the BBC show in 2022.

Widdrington said: “To headline a show in the UK like Once Upon A Time is a dream come true, and to do it alongside Nadiya will make it even more amazing.

“We believe we have assembled one of the best casts around to support us on tour so we cannot wait to get out there next spring and entertain audiences across the country by giving them all a show to remember.”

Nadia And Kai Once Upon A Time begins in Portsmouth on March 27 and ends in Dartford on May 7.
