Despite being seen engaging in a passionate kiss only days ago, the couple checked into separate rooms following the tiff, according to passers-by.

An onlooker told The Sun: ‘It seemed to start over Kai not carrying Nadiya’s bags and she got irritable.

‘But then it seemed to spiral a bit and they were both making it clear they weren’t happy. It’s only been a few weeks but it looks like a bit of trouble in paradise.

‘They both took separate hotel room keys, but nobody knows whether they shared.’ 

The insider added that there coule be tension between the lovebirds as Nadiya reportedly wants to downplay their romance to keep the peace with her footballer ex, ­Matija Skarabot.

Representatives for Nadiya and Kai have been contacted for comment by MailOnline. 

The pair have been at the centre of romance rumours for weeks after they were reported to have grown close in the wake of Nadiya’s split from her Slovenian footballer fiancé Matija, 33.

In pictures obtained by The Sun, the couple could be seen locking lips in what appeared to be the lobby of Newcastle’s Malmaison hotel.

Nadiya and Kai could be seen leaning in close as they shared an intimate moment together during a cosy coffee date.

A source told the publication: ‘They didn’t seem to care who could see them. It’s clear they’re massively loved up.’

It is said that the new couple spent 30 minutes at the hotel bar and were not in the vicinity of the other pro dancers and celebrities amid their live tour.

The insider continued: ‘Nadiya and Kai met away from the other dancers and celebrities, who were a mile up the road in the Travelodge. She had bought Kai a coffee from Starbucks next door and they talked and cuddled before having a kiss.’

They added that the pair didn’t want anybody ‘gossiping’ as there’s already been ‘so much speculation.’

The publication reports that the couple shared their first kiss at the end of week one on the main Strictly show – despite strong Covid restrictions in place at the time.

A second source confirmed that despite Nadiya’s close friendship with her celebrity partner Dan Walker and rumours Kai was dating AJ Odudu, Nadiya has been ‘single a while’ and Kai was ‘never dating AJ’ – adding that romance struck when they were both ‘free agents’.

They added that the relationship is ‘early days’ but the couple are ‘happy’.

Nadiya is meanwhile reportedly toying with the emotions of her footballer former fiancé Matija Škarabot, 33, by removing and putting her engagement ring back on again during public outings.

She shares a six-year-old daughter Mila with the professional sportsman and the pair speak regularly despite her budding relationship with Kai, according to an insider. 

A source told The Sun: ‘She’s still talking to Matija and he thinks there is still hope. One day she’ll have the ring on but by the afternoon it could be off. These pictures of her and Kai will devastate him.’
