Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Colin and Kristina travel to Canada for training!

Colin Salmon (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing star Colin Salmon has taken his pro dance partner Kristina Rhianoff all the way out to Canada to train!

Colin has been forced to fly out to the cold country to shoot some final scenes for his work on new sky one show Arrow.

And proving that Strictly does take over your life, he jetted out with Kristina and spent any free time between takes on rehearsals!

A source told The Sun today: “The Strictly stars often have to travel around with their celebrity partners but jetting off to Vancouver is quite unusual.

“But Colin had no choice as he had some scenes to shoot that couldn’t be delayed."

The insider explained: “He figured he could balance both shows but now he’s bricking it that he won’t get enough practice. They only managed to squeeze in a few minutes when they first got there.”

A lucky film crew have also flown out to catch all the action, before they all flew back late last night.

Colin tweeted: “Kristina has just left the set of Arrow. We had fun and got some great footage. Looking forward to getting down to serious training tomorrow.”

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 continues this weekend with the third live show. Johnny Ball became the first celeb to be eliminated last Sunday, and this Sunday will see another star get the axe!
