Pasha Kovalev has led an extraordinary life. His talent and determination have led him from the stark landscape of his Siberian hometown to dance in Moscow, New York, LA and finally in London, where he now lives. Best known for Strictly Come Dancing, which he won in 2014 with Caroline Flack (having previously danced his way to the finals two years’ running with partners Chelsee Healey & Kimberley Walsh), Pasha still remains something of an enigma. Unlike some of his dancing co-stars he has eschewed the limelight. He doesn’t frequent the pages of celeb glossies and, despite his relationship with former dance partner Rachel Riley, his fans have known little about him outside the television shows that made him famous. But all that’s about to change as, in this candid autobiography, Pasha spills the beans on everything from romance to body image, the illness which nearly killed him and, most importantly, what really goes on beneath the veneer of sparkles and glamour.
