Strictly’s Nigel and Katya reunite following show finale

Strictly Come Dancing’s Nigel Harman and his professional partner Katya Jones have come together once more after the conclusion of the show’s final last weekend.

Nigel and Katya progressed to Musicals Week during the 2023 series but had to withdraw from the competition just hours before the quarter-finals due to Nigel’s rib injury.

The Casualty star returned to the ballroom for the final, participating in a group routine, and has since reunited with professional dancer Katya.

In an Instagram Story that has now expired (via The Sun), the duo was captured enjoying a meal at a Gaucho restaurant, with the photo captioned: “What a beautiful evening.”

During the live show for Musicals Week after his departure, former EastEnders star Nigel shared with Strictly host Claudia Winkleman the details of how he sustained his injury.

“I was leaping off a rostrum, and I was about to be caught by some very handsome men, and as I flew, I was Peter Pan, and as I landed, I was in A&E,” he explained.

“So I’ve done something to my rib, basically, and it’s quite painful. I’m a little bit high on painkillers as well, but I’m having a lovely time.”

Katya also shared her thoughts after the pair’s departure from the competition with a heartfelt tribute to Nigel.

“And here we are,” the dancer expressed. “What an abrupt ending. But when the dust has settled, I know only beautiful memories will remain in my heart.”

She concluded the message by expressing gratitude for the partnership, stating, “I am so grateful this partnership happened. So proud of you and privileged to spend time with such an enormously talented human.”
