To which Kai revealed: "She calls me Kai Lemon Pie, she goes: 'Hi Kai Lemon Pie, bye Kai Lemon Pie!'," and giggled.

Nadiya and Kai were rumoured to be in a relationship for a number of months before they confirmed the news in April.

Nadiya later confirmed that she had been dating Kai since January, after she split from ex-fiancé Matija Škarabot, 34, in 2021.

The loved-up couple were quizzed on how they ended up getting together during their Loose Women appearance.

Kai said: "When we dance together, it just works, it’s not often you get that.

A source told The Sun: "Moving in together was the obvious next step for Nadiya and Kai. They’ve grown so close and it just made sense.

"Kai helped Nadiya move in her belongings this week and they’re excited about making their property feel like a shared home."
