Strictly's Kristina Rihanoff blasts X Factor: 'It's an absolute joke'

Strictly Come Dancing pro Kristina Rihanoff has hit out at the X Factor, calling it an absolutely joke.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz, Kristina claimed that the rival ITV1 series didn't have the same glamour and class that Strictly Come Dancing has!

The ballroom champ, who has been paired with Hollywood star Colin Salmon on this year's series, blasted the latest X Factor results.

"I don't want to go on about it," said Kristina, going on about it, "But the elimination of Carolynne just proves it's an absolute joke."

She added: "It doesn't come close to the glamour and class of 'Strictly'."

Meanwhile, super fit Kristina reveled she's only happy with her body when she's training for the BBC series.

She said: "My body confidence depends on the time of year. Now, working all hours of the day, I feel in my best shape. When 'Strictly' stops I become more conscious. I'm careful about what I eat and exercise as much as I can."

And it sounds as though Kristina is working celeb partner Colin very hard in training this week, as the pair prepare to Salsa on Saturday night's show.

The Arrow star tweeted: "Good morning. In all my years of sport and gym nothing touches Kristina and Salsa. Feel the burn!"

Strictly Come Dancing returns this weekend on Saturday 27th October at 6.30pm for Strictly’s spooktacular Halloween special with the results show on Sunday 28th October at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
