The latest update in Kai and Nadiya’s romance comes just weeks after the pair were reportedly spotted kissing at a charity event in Leeds.

The duo, along with BBC Breakfast star Dan Walker, were in Leeds to perform at a charity ball.

It was at this event that the couple apparently cosied up to each other.

A source speaking to The Sun said: “Nadiya and Kai appeared to be very much an item and their chemistry was palpable during the rehearsals — even when they weren’t dancing.

“There were quiet moments when they hugged and shared a quick kiss,” they continued. “Nadiya and Kai seem very happy together. It is all very sweet.”
