Strictlys Tilly Ramsay sees Nikita as a big brother after romance claims

Tilly Ramsay has reportedly laughed off claims of a budding relationship between her Strictly Come Dancing partner, Nikita Kuzmin.

Following speculation that the pair had grown close in recent weeks, the 19 year old is said to have likened the dance professional to a "big brother" than a potential love interest.

A source told The Sun: "Tilly finds the stories really funny. Lovers? She's been saying he's more like a brother.

"Tilly says Nikita is literally the funniest person she's ever met, but there's nothing at all going on behind the scenes," it was added of the blonde's relationship with the Ukrainian professional dancer, who is in a long-term relationship with Nicole Wirt.

The source added that the dance partners are "too busy having fun", and Tilly has also spoken to Nikita's girlfriend Nikita "a couple of times on FaceTime".

"Tilly thinks Nicole's amazing – an absolutely incredible dancer. She's been really supportive of them and been wishing them well in private throughout the series," it was added.

OK! has contacted a representative for Tilly for further comment.

This comes after Nikita's girlfriend Nicole posted a cryptic message on Instagram.

Nicole posted a split-screen image with a single individual on one side with the caption "The Support" alongside a second photo of a huge crowd with the caption: "The Congratulations."

Over this, she wrote: "Don't get fooled," alongside an emoji of a person with their finger over their mouth.

Sharing a photo of the pair's week one Waltz, Nicole added love heart emojis and wrote "cheering on my favs" before adding that the duo's performance was "mesmerising".

Meanwhile, Tilly has been having the time of her life competing on Strictly.

Social media sensation Tilly recently spoke to new! about her relationship status, confirming that she's single and adding: "Yes, I am single, but I'm here to focus on dancing.

"I'd have been crazy to say no to Strictly Come Dancing. It really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and most importantly, I really want to learn to dance."

Her debut dance on Strictly left her famous father, Gordon Ramsey, in tears.

Appearing on Strictly's It Takes Two, Tilly said: "Dad couldn't watch until after because he was away, he said he cried as well. I moved them all to tears… I guess that's a good thing!"
