Pasha Kovalev and girlfriend Rachel Riley
The Strictly Come Dancing curse worked in Pasha and Rachel’s favour as they’re still going strong in the relationship department. They first met when they were paired up on Strictly in 2013.
They later officially struck up a romance when Rachel split from her husband and have been happily in love ever since.
Pasha and Rachel were recently brought into the Strictly curse scandal as an ex contestant revealed the professional would never be a part of it thanks to his reserved nature.
Pasha’s net worth
Pasha has done very well for himself off the back of Strictly. Not only has he been contracted for multiple series, he’s also done personal tours and released an autobiography.
All of this has meant the Russian dancer has earned himself a comfortable fortune.
Who were Pasha’s previous Strictly partners?
Pasha won Strictly with Caroline Flack in 2012 and has also been partners with Kimberley Walsh, Chelsea Healey, Carol Kirkwood, Naga Munchetty and Chizzy Akudolu.
