The dancer made history as part of the the show’s first same-sex pairing with dance partner Nicola Adams.

But, their time on the show was cut short after Katya tested positive for coronavirus and had to pull out of the competition.

After self-isolating, the pair returned to the show to dance together for one last time at the final.

The latest series was won by Oti Mabuse and her dance partner Bill Bailey.

Elsewhere, Katya recently took to Instagram to showcase her first tattoo.

The dancer gave a sultry pose to the camera as she flashed her new ink, located on her right wrist.

She commented: “I guess it’s time. It’s been long enough, I’m ready… Sorry mum, I got a tattoo.”

Katya later reassured her fans her mother had liked her post and was seemingly fine with her decision.
