The lovebirds will again tour the country with their show Once Upon A Time in 2024, with dates yet to be confirmed but last year clashed with the BBC’s show’s arena tour schedule.
A source said: ‘They found love on and off the dancefloor and Nadiya and Kai’s chemistry was such a hit they have been asked to do a second tour next year, this time closing in Kai’s hometown of Southampton. They’re in huge demand.’
The couple previously said that they are living the ‘dream fairytale’ after falling in love on the BBC show.
They exclusively told MailOnline their romance is ‘incredibly special’ because the chemistry they share on stage is real.

In an exclusive interview, Nadiya and Kai revealed that despite public misconception, they are yet to take their year-long relationship to the next level and move in together as they admit it is ‘difficult’ being under the watchful gaze of their loyal fanbase.
Nadiya, who shares daughter Mila with ex-fiancée Matija Škarabot, explained that it took herself and Kai some time to establish their feelings for each other, while Strictly viewers were keen to discover if they had become the show’s first professional pairing to find love on the dance floor.
She said: ‘At the beginning we were still figuring it out for ourselves! It is easier now in the sense that everyone knows we’re together but having a relationship in the public eye is tough.’
Kai added: ‘Everything is scrutinised,’ before Nadiya continued, ‘but there are some positives, we get to do what we love, and create the show, so it’s how you balance it
