BBC Strictly Come Dancing's Nadiya Bychkova's sweet message to Matt Goss after feud rumours

BBC Strictly Come Dancing's Nadiya Bychkova paid tribute to dancing partner Matt Goss with a glowing Instagram post in which she wished him a happy birthday. It came after there had been some rumours of a feud between the two.

Professional dancer Nadiya has been paired with the Bros singer for this year's series of the BBC show. There had been rumours of a 'feud' which had circulated following the first live show on the BBC last weekend, Birmingham Live reports.

However, Nadiya has proven all is good between them. She took to Instagram to wish Matt a happy 54th birthday.

She shared a picture of the two of them beaming at the camera, writing: “Happy birthday partner @mattgoss. Let’s have some fun and Samba.”

It comes after the couple found themselves in the dance-off on Sunday's night's first elimination. Loose Women star Kaye Adams became the first celebrity to depart the show after the judges’ scores this week were added to those from last week, and were then combined with the results of the viewers’ votes to decide the lowest-scoring two couples

The couple looked at ease with each other as they took to the floor with a Quickstep routine. But it was what happened afterwards that got tongues wagging.

There were reports of the Bros star appearing to ‘pull’ Nadiya into shot of the camera as they were interviewed by Claudia Winkleman. One person tweeted: “So I have watched again when Matt Goss pulled Nadiya into the camera spot that all are talking about. I sense many arguments between them too.”

A second said: “Poor Nadiya, I get the feeling that Matt Goss is gonna be hard work.” Matt said he was “proud to announce” his dance partner was the “lovely Nadiya” before the show started. Nadiya also gushed about their partnership.

She wrote on her Instagram: “Please let me introduce you – my celebrity partner fabulous @mattgoss What an honour to be the one who will introduce you to an incredible world of dance. We gonna have so much fun partner. Let’s do this."

On Saturday night's latest episode of the series, the couple danced a Samba to the Bee Gees' Saturday Night Fever.
