Strictly Come Dancing’s new professional dancer Nikita Kuzmin made his debut on tonight’s launch episode, and he quickly made his mark on the viewers watching at home.

After Nikita was partnered up with Gordon Ramsay’s daughter, social media and TV star Tilly Ramsay, fans flocked to social media to say what a great addition to the show he was.

And it wasn’t long before many were complimenting him on his appearance, with some even saying that he has a very famous look alike – England footballer Jack Grealish.

As BBC One viewers congratulated the 23-year-old Ukrainian dancer on his first Strictly appearance, they described him as “gorgeous” and “amazing.”

While one fan went one step further, writing: “Nikita is my type of guy! He looks like Jack Grealish”.

While Nikita is partnered with Tilly on the show, away from our screens he is in a relationship with fellow dancer Nicole Wirt, who he credits with being completely “supportive”.

And during an exclusive shoot and interview alongside fellow new professionals Kai Widdrington, Jowita Przystal and Cameron Lombard, Nikita told OK! all about their romance.

Nikita said: “My girlfriend Nicole’s been extremely supportive since the beginning, just helping me and motivating me.”

The six-time Latin and Ballroom National Champion in Italy continued: “I’ve moved over here from Germany for the show and it’s actually the longest we’ve been apart since we got together.”

“I believe 100% that we are professionals. We are here to do our job and all the Strictly curse talk, maybe it’s not a nice way to say it, but it’s nonsense to me.”

The Strictly newcomer also said that he hopes to bring some fun to our screens now that he’s landed one of the biggest gigs in TV.

He told us: “I hope to bring a lot of brightness, a lot of new energy, a lot of freshness, a lot of Latin playfulness.”

“The way I see it, I would love to just bring a breath of fresh air.”

Nikita, Cameron, Kai and Jowita have joined the other professional dancers, including Aljaz Skorjanec, Amy Dowden, Dianne Buswell, Giovanni Pernice, Gorka Marquez, Graziano Di Prima, Johannes Radebe and Karen Hauer.

Katya Jones, Luba Mushtuk, Nadiya Bychkova, Nancy Xu, Neil Jones and Oti Mabuse complete the all-star line-up.
