Strictly Come Dancing is back once again for another thrilling series in 2021!
Luba Mushtuk is one of the many returning Strictly professional dancers, and here is a handy guide to the talented star.
Luba was born on November 14, 1989, in Russia. She celebrated her 31st birthday in 2020.
She had previously worked on the show as an assistant choreographer since 2016, and has contributed to a number of group routines.

Luba has won the Italian Dance Championship and Italian Open Latin Show Dance four times. She was ranked second in the European 10 Dance Championships, and was a finalist in the Latin European Championship.
In November 2017, it was reported that Luba was dating fellow Strictly star Giovanni Pernice before breaking up.
They have been friends for several years, with The Sun claiming: “She would like their romance to be out in the open. Luba is very keen to be on the show one day."
In 2020, it was reported that Luba was dating Italian TV star Constantino Vitagliano.
