Strictly Come Dancing 2013 gossip: Kristina Rihanoff wants to see romance!

Kristina Rihanoff (Strictly Come Dancing 2013)

Strictly Come Dancing 2013 pro Kristina Rihanoff has said she hopes to see romance on the series.

The newly single performer claimed that a lack of chemistry between pros and their celebrity partners made for a boring series.

She told The Sun newspaper this morning: “Nothing happened last year – it was quite boring.

"It’s nice when there’s chemistry but no one fell in love – everyone on last year’s show was happy and settled.

“We have four new professional dancers starting this year so we shall see what happens with the new celebrities.”

Russian dancer Kristina of course got with her celeb partner, ex-boxer Joe Calzaghe on the show four years ago, although the pair split earlier this year.

Now the blonde beauty is paired with the equally hunky rugby star Ben Cohen, but he insisted that his wife has nothing to worry about.

The former England player stressed to the tabloid: “I’ve been with my wife since I was 16 and we have two beautiful children.

"I’m secure in my relationship. Some dances are sexy and passionate and I will embrace it.”

Strictly Come Dancing 2013 will kick off its live shows in October.
