Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Colin Salmon 'not speaking' to Kristina Rihanoff

Colin Salmon (Strictly Come Dancing)

Strictly Come Dancing star Colin Salmon and his pro partner Kristina Rihanoff aren't speaking, it's been reported.

It's claimed that the James Bond actor angered Kristina by flying out to Canada last week to film scenes for his US show Arrow.

Kristina had to fly out across the Atlantic to join him, but the duo managed to squeeze in only 10 hours of training before spending another 10 hours flying back to the UK for Saturday's live show.

The Daily Star reports that the duo have since been rowing over Colin's work schedule, with Kristina worried that Colin isn't putting enough time and effort into the BBC One series.

A source told the newspaper: "Kristina is desperate to win. She was angry he flew out to Canada.

"They're barely speaking at the moment apart from when she shouts at him for getting his steps wrong."

Speaking to The Sun last week, Kristina confessed that the jet lag was causing issues for th epair.

She said: "Coping with the jet lag is hard. We're trying our best but it's not at all easy. I'm really worried tiredness will affect our performance.

"We haven't had much time to rehearse, either. We had our first proper day of rehearsal on Wednesday - we squeezed in a bit of training on set between Colin's scenes.

"As well as our routine, I have a professional number, with a solo, to do. I hope it will be OK but I'm seriously concerned."

However despite the complaints, the duo avoided the bottom two on Sunday and continue to train for this weekend's show.

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.
