Strictly’s Kristina Rhianoff defended Katya Jones and Seann Walsh after finding love with married Ben Cohen who was recently estranged from his then-wife Abby.

Appearing on Saturday’s BBC Breakfast, the former Strictly star expressed her deepest sympathies as she claimed the pair had weathered a ‘terrible’ week.   

Rubbishing the Strictly Curse, the mother-of-one insisted people fall in love all the time at work and she explained how the BBC show consumes the dancers’ lives.

Of the Strictly Curse, she said: ‘Statistically people get together at work… for the professional dancers on the show it’s a full time job. 

‘You prepare for the show, you tour. You don’t go anywhere else, you don’t do anything else.’

Kristina freely expressed her sympathy to the cheating duo as she claimed she hoped people would give them a chance after their ‘terrible’ week.

She went onto say: ‘I hope people can give them a chance. They’re professionals and they have to put all of that aside. It’s been a terrible week but they have to get it together… 

‘I don’t think It Takes Two was the right programme to apologise, because this is about personal lives, not dancing.’

The Russian stated the fact that her relationship and family with Ben blossomed after the BBC show had finished.  

She said: ‘Our relationship developed after the show. Also I have a family so I can’t really see the connection. Relationships do happen, I’m not the only person to have a second relationship, a second marriage.

‘Anything where you have a partnership or teamwork you do have a connection because you have to trust each other. But whether it’s going to anywhere else, we don’t know.

‘We can’t really judge because we don’t know what’s happening behind closed doors.’
