Strictly curse regrets
Strictly star Ben Cohen’s ex wife Abby says she regrets calling Kristina Rihanoff ‘a f**king russian dancer’.
Abby, 42, and Ben were still very much a married couple when he was paired up with Russian dancer Kristina on the BBC show back in 2013.
But the former rugby pro left her for the professional ballroom star – with their divorce finalised in 2016.
At the time, Abby lashed out at Strictly favourite Kristina, 43, calling her a “f**king Russian dancer” as she battled her heartbreak.
But now the mother-of-two, who shares daughter Harriette with Ben, has revealed she regrets losing her temper at the time of the break-up.
Abby told New magazine: “At the time of the break-up, when hugely stressed, I once angrily referred to Ben’s partner as a ‘f***ing Russian dancer’ to a journalist hassling me. I regret that now.”
She went on: “I’m happier in my own skin and I’m not that broken girl who used to be married to a famous rugby player.”
