Two stars from popular BBC dancing show 'Strictly Come Dancing' are set to perform in St Albans.

Nadiya Bychkova and Kai Widdrington, known as 'Nadiya & Kai' to fans, will perform their 'Once Upon a Time' show on Sunday, April 30.

The show will feature a range of dances and stories from the two performers.

Nadiya is a Ukrainian-Slovenian dancer, who is a two-time World Champion and European Champion in Ballroom and Latin ‘10’ Dance.


She made her Strictly Come Dancing debut in 2017, and has partnered the likes of David James, Dan Walker and Matt Goss.

Kai, meanwhile, is a Junior World Latin American champion, and spent four years as a professional dancer on 'Dancing With The Stars' in Ireland.

He joined Strictly in 2021, reaching the final with AJ Odudu, before an injury forced her to withdraw.

Kai Widdrington said: "To headline a show in the UK like ‘Once Upon A Time’ is a dream come true, and to do it alongside Nadiya will make it even more amazing.

"We believe we have assembled one of the best casts around to support us on tour so we cannot wait to get out there next spring and entertain audiences across the country by giving them all a show to remember."
