Ben Cohen's ex-wife has seemingly taken a swipe at Strictly Come Dancing's Kristina Rihanoff as the trio's supposed love triangle comes to an end.

Ben and former wife Abby Blayney finalised their divorce this week after splitting up back in 2014.

"Ben and Abby have finally agreed to a financial settlement, which hasn’t been without any argument," a source told the Daily Mirror newspaper.

Abby herself is quoted by the paper as saying: “I’m Ben Cohen’s ex-wife. If it wasn’t for that woman me and Ben would still be married. But so what? I’m moving on.

“I don’t want to talk about being the ditched wife. Ben’s getting on with his life. I wish him well with his new family.”

Ben and Kristina, who are now expecting a baby together, have always maintained they only got together after Ben and Abby had separated.

However Abby alleged previously: "He’s done the dirty on me and I want people to know. My husband, who I was with for 23 years, unconditionally loved and was completely loyal to, has left me for a f*****g Russian dancer."

Speaking last year, Kristina defended her relationship with Ben and claimed: "He left his wife a year ago. Recently we started dating but we’re allowed to see each other as two single people.

“I don’t know why I’m always attacked. I’m a hardworking, self-made person. I support five people in my family in Russia..."

Kristina announced her exit from Strictly earlier this year following a stint in Celebrity Big Brother.
