It comes amid rumours swirled that the duo were set to be victims of the show’s famous ‘curse’ after the pro’s girlfriend Nicole Wirt penned a crypical message about ‘not being supported.’ 

After Tilly and Nikita were seen heading back to her flat one evening, the daughter of TV chef Gordon Ramsay set the record straight, clarifying: ‘No no – we were filming a VT for the show, we really are just good friends and dance partners.’ 

Nikita added that his family and his girlfriend Nicole have been hugely supportive since he joined the Strictly lineup earlier this year.

Refreshments: Nikita clutched a can of Diet Coke following his intense dance rehearsal

He said: ‘My family and my girlfriend have been an amazing support since I started Strictly. I try to call them every day to update them on how it’s going. 

‘We’re used to living far away from each other. I lived in Denmark for most of my youth, then I lived in a separate city in Italy to them, then in Germany for the last five years. 

‘It would be a dream for them to come and watch Strictly live. My mother is a huge Strictly fan – she knows more about the show than I do!’

Excited: She wrote this caption to accompany her post

It comes after Tilly, who is single, insisted that she is on Strictly to focus on the dancing, which she is juggling with her university work.

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.’
