Kai also revealed the new nickname that she has for him, which he said has changed since he last appeared on the show.

He said: ‘She has a new nickname for me – I remember last time I was on the show, it was Kai Lemon Pie, but now it’s Kai Cotton Candy Pie for 2024.’

The dancing duo appeared on Loose Women and performed a routine from their dance tour and opened up on what daily life together was like for them.

It seems as though Mila could follow in her professional dancer mother’s footsteps, as Kai shared: ‘She likes dancing with mummy.’

Nadiya said: ‘We are practising later, she’s preparing for a little competition later this week. I don’t really get involved.

‘I want her to have her own experience, I don’t want to be that parent who’s saying no, you need to do that. I’m just there watching her dance and I feel so proud.’

She also said: ‘Mila is seven so she’s quite a busy young lady. On weekends it’s art classes and dance classes and ballet. Now I’m planning my schedule around her schedule.’

The beginning of the year saw Kai and Nadiya head off on the Strictly Come Dancing tour.

Sharing snaps from their antics while on the tour, the couple looked smitten in loved-up Instagram snaps in January.

They couldn’t keep their hands off each other as they posed for a mirror selfie before heading out for a wholesome dinner.

Nadiya and Kai spent some solo time together amid all the madness.

The couple enjoyed some down time in London and visited an indoor golf course for a date night.

Nadiya also posed in her pink trainers rested on Kai’s lap as they ventured across the city with their morning coffee’s in hand.

It comes after Kai gushed over Nadiya during an appearance on Lorraine in December 2023.

While the public don’t see too much of the couple dancing together on the BBC dance show, away from the TV they make the perfect pair and are taking their tour Behind The Magic on the road come June 2024.

The dancers discussed the new show leading Kai to pay his girlfriend the ultimate compliment.

As Lorraine remarked that the two have quite a different style of dancing, Kai explained that he thinks Nadiya is the ‘most beautiful dancer in the world.’

He said: ‘We’re very different styles, I am very old school, traditional, you know English, British dancer whereas Nadiya is very, well you know I think Nadiya is the most beautiful dancer in the world personally.’

‘But they say opposites attract,’ he concluded, while Nadiya added: ‘We compliment each other.’

Discussing the tour, Kai explained it shows fans how they create things behind the scenes.

‘We want to show the audience what is gong on backstage and all the interesting and tricky moments.’
