It comes a week after Nicola was axed from the show by TV bosses due to her dance partner Katya Jones testing positive for Covid-19.

Chatting with Zoe Ball for BBC2, Nicola said: "It was a little bit frustrating not being able to continue when I'd just got back into the swing of things and I was enjoying the dancing.

"But the rules are in place to keep everyone safe so I'm doing my part."

Zoe then asked Nicola if she and Katya had been keeping in touch.

The news will be welcomed by fans who were left frustrated by Nicola's departure, given her negative test results.

Strictly just hasn't been the same without the pro boxer. We can't wait to see Nicola and Katya back for what we hope will be an all-bells-and-whistles performance in the final.
