Sharing a defiant picture of herself on the dance floor, Nadiya said: “Don’t believe everything that is reported in the papers, or what you see.

She shared an adorable photo with her daughter Mila and said she can’t wait to see her.

“I can’t wait for you to join me in the UK my little princess 👸🏼 in couple of weeks,” Nadiya posted.

“And I am so grateful for FaceTime so I can speak to Mila every day during the tour. It’s the highlight of my day.”

When did Nadiya split from her fiancé?
