Strictly Come Dancing celebrity dancer Nikita Kanda was hit in the face in a random attack as she walked through London on Thursday. The BBC presenter Nikita was left shaken when a stranger hit her in the face, laughed and then ran off.

The broadcaster, who appeared on the dance contest last year, called police. She took to social media to say: “Today something really scary happened and I feel the need to share it.

“After finishing my show today I was walking underground at Oxford Circus station minding my own business looking at my phone and a random guy decided to hit me in the face for no reason at all and laughed about it.”

She added: “I’m in utter shock that someone could do this. I’ve lived in London my whole life and something like this has never happened. I would like to think I’m very street wise and always aware of my surroundings. Luckily, I’m not hurt, the big sunglasses I wear actually protected my face in some way. It’s just absolutely disgusting that someone can do this in broad daylight and what was even more sad no one around me cared or batted an eye lid that someone just hit me in public.

“The police are dealing with it and taking it very seriously but I thought it was important to share if you are walking alone or if you travel alone a lot like I do just to be careful. There are some very nasty people out there and this has just opened my eyes and shook me up tbh. What kind of world do we live in.”

Nikita was the second celebrity to be eliminated from Strictly in 2023 after she landed in the dance-off against Zara McDermott.
