Where are Davood and Nadiya from Strictly Come Dancing now? Updates in 2020!

Waltzes, cha-cha-chas and the flirty Tango are just a few incredible dances that are soon on BBC’s throwback show Strictly The Best Of.

Hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman take a look back at different themed Strictly Come Dancing nights over the years. Tonight’s episode took us back in true song and colour as they revisited the Musicals theme, which a number of pairs on the dancing talent show have impressed the judges with.

A popular BBC dancing pair were Davood Ghadami and professional dancer Nadiya Bychkova. So where are the dancing duo now? We done some research and found out what they have been up to since being a pair!

The pair wowed the judges with their performances when they competed in 2017.

During Musicals Week, they danced a Phantom of the Opera Argentine Tango, which Tess and Claudia looked back on. However this was the same week that Eastenders actor Davood left the show.

It was down to their balance issues which left judges unimpressed, placing them joint bottom of the leaderboard.

The dancing duo were in the dance off against Alexandra and Gorka. It was the first year that Nadiya had joined the Strictly Come Dancing cast as a professional dancer.

Where is Davood Ghadami now?

David, who is now 38, has played Kush Kazemi in Eastenders for six years. However just days ago, it was revealed that he will be leaving the show in 2021 as his contract comes to an end.

In 2017, when he was on the dancing talent show, he allegedly revealed that he really was not worried about the so-called ‘Strictly curse’ that has caused other relationships to crumble.

He is still married to Isobel Ghadami, who he has two children Eva and Grace with. They celebrate their 10-year wedding anniversary this year.

The actor is also into gym training during his spare time, which he regularly shares on social media.

She is currently loved up with fiancé Matija Skarabot, who she has daughter Mila with. They live in London.
