Nadiya, 32, cut a chic figure in a cropped alabaster blazer which she teamed with stylish black trousers. 

Opting for a simple make-up look the stunner let her blonde tresses cascade to her shoulders as she shielded her eyes behind oversized shades.

A source told the publication: ‘As a publicly-funded corporation, the BBC has to be careful with its commercial guidelines but there is a clear grey area when it comes to performers.

‘The dancers being booked to perform at private events isn’t the same thing as them mimicking a scene for an advert.’

While the company’s website states that they are not endorsed by the cooperation,¬† their website features a version of the show’s famous glitterball as well as a similar purple colour scheme.¬†
