“Matija is dedicated to his footballing career in Slovenia and Nadiya is predominantly based in London,” said the source.

“Performing on Strictly and the Strictly Live Tour takes up half her year, in the end the commitment to their jobs made it too difficult for the relationship to work.

“There is still a lot of love between them and Mila is and always will be their priority.”

The couple apparently no longer follow each other on social media and Nadiya last posted about Matija on Instagram in June.

In a tribute to him on Father’s Day, she posted a photo of him with Mila, adding: “Happy Father’s Day @matija_skarabot.

“This beautiful connection between daughter and father is so important. Makes me so happy to see this kind of moments between them. Thank you for being the best dad to our beautiful little girl. We love you.”

The three of them appeared to be on holiday in Croatia.

MailOnline also reports that Nadiya, who was previously married, has stopped wearing her diamond engagement ring.

Nadiya finished fifth in 2021’s competition alongside her dancing partner, Dan Walker.

The pair won Strictly fans over with their close bond.
