Kristina Rihanoff has vowed not to discuss her relationship in the Celebrity Big Brother house, but while she hopes to keep her romance with formerly married rugby hunk Ben Cohen under wraps, there’s no hiding the dancer’s dating past...


Branded a ‘man-eater’ for her previous relationships, Kristina Rihanoff has dated three former Strictly partners and was also linked to her 2014 partner Simon Webbe, although the pair strongly denied the romance rumours. The blonde beauty reportedly asked to be paired with 53-year-old Catholic grandfather, Daniel O’Donnell, in the show’s most recent stint, to end the ‘Curse of Strictly’.

So who’s she dated?

Ben Cohen
Kristina’s current beau, Ben Cohen, split from his childhood sweetheart and wife of 11 years, Abby Cohen, 12 months after appearing on Strictly with Kristina.

While the loved-up pair are adamant they only began dating after Ben’s marriage was over, Abby has not hidden her heartbreak-fuelled anger.

In an interview, she said: ‘My husband, who I was with for 23 years, unconditionally loved and was completely loyal to in every respect, has left me for a f*****g Russian dancer.’

Kristina was said to be ‘suicidal’ over allegations she caused the marriage to break down but the pair seem to have moved on as Kristina confessed she was ‘nearly three months’ pregnant while in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

Kristina’s four-year relationship with Joe Calzaghe started in 2009 after the Welsh boxer reportedly ditched his girlfriend of five years one week into being paired with Kristina.

Problems between Joe and Kristina began in 2013 due to work commitments and tough schedules. In an interview, Kristina revealed: ‘He always found it difficult when I danced with other men. Dancing is like acting, but some dances are very intimate and I’d never hold back.’

Their relationship finally came to a head when Kristina accepted a job in the West End’s Burn The Floor. The Russian beauty was said to be devastated at the split.
