Former Strictly pro Kristina Rihanoff could make a comeback on the US series

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Former Strictly Come Dancing pro Kristina Rihanoff could be making a comeback - in the US.

Kristina left the BBC One series as a professional dancer in 2015 after eight series.

But now she could be set for a Stateside comeback with a role on the American version of the show, Dancing With The Stars.

Apparently ex-Strictly judge Len Goodman, who has also now stepped down from the show, is encouraging her to talk to show bosses.

While Len has left Strictly he remains a judge on Dancing With The Stars which films in Los Angeles and airs on ABC in the States.

However Kristina's plans are said to be unsettling her partner Ben Cohen, who she got together with after they were paired together on Strictly.

"Kristina is in talks to do Dancing with the Stars and she’s flying out to LA at the weekend for secret talks," a source told The Sun newspaper today.

They explained: “They are very keen on her and Len has told her it would be a great move for her to make career wise.

“Ben desperately doesn’t want her to move to the States and it is causing serious tension in their relationship."

After leaving Strictly, Kristina took part in Celebrity Big Brother where the dancer announced she and Ben were expecting their first child and the couple welcomed baby Mila last year.
