Tilly praises partner Nikita

The social media star went on praise partner Nikita, saying: “But most importantly the biggest thank you ever to the best partner I could have wished for @nikita__kuzmin.

I have enjoyed every single second of it

“You have helped to grow my confidence in so many different ways whilst also helping me discover things about myself I never knew.

“These are all things I’m going to remember for the rest of my life!! I have absolutely loved learning to dance with you we had the most fun.”

She added: “Thank you to everyone who supported us through this crazy journey it’s something I am going to remember and be so grateful for for the rest of my life!!”
