Strictly Come Dancing’s Kristina Rihanoff and Ben Cohen ‘in talks for their own reality show’

Ex Strictly Come Dancing pro Kristina Rihanoff and boyfriend Ben Cohen are in talks for their own reality series.


The pair got together shortly after dancing with one another on the 2013 series of the BBC One series.

They’ve since welcomed a baby daughter and could soon allow cameras to follow their new family life.

Kristina, who left Strictly in 2015, said: “We were asked to do one but I was pregnant. Several production companies were in talks, but there was a lot happening.”

She added: “In my heart and soul I am a dancer. To open the doors on our private life it has to be a very good contract.”

Kristina appeared in Celebrity Big Brother before giving birth and was also offered to appear on Channel 4’s The Jump, but turned down the show after fellow Strictly dancer Ola Jordan was left injured.

Meanwhile, speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Kristina kept a dignified silence following recent tabloid reports over her connection with new Strictly judge Shirley Ballas.


Kristina was previously in a relationship with Shirley’s ex-husband, who has been speaking out about their past in the papers.

But Kristina said she had “more important” things to worry about and declared: “What people say about me is their business.”
