Ben Cohen's ex-wife Abby says she's not shocked Strictly curse has struck again four years after her husband waltzed off with Kristina Rihanoff

Abby Blayney was married to childhood sweetheart Ben for 11 years and had twin daughters before they split in 2014, just months after he took part on Strictly Come Dancing and was partnered with Kristina Rihanoff.


Yesterday it emerged that Seann Walsh, who has a girlfriend, and married Katya Jones, had been caught kissing during a very flirty night out – leading to a fan to tweet Abby.

Tagging her in a tweet, they wrote: “Can I ask the dancers on Strictly stop breaking up relationships ffs. All the millions of people in the world and you pick the taken ones you morons. Have respect for people.”

Abby replied: “Yep another one. Shocking but I am not surprised at all!”


Ben and Kristina announced  they were in a relationship in 2015, and in June 2016 the couple had a baby daughter, named Milena – just three months after his divorce went through.

At the time both Ben and Kristina insisted the romance only started after his marriage to Abby had ended and they vehemently denied affair claims or the Strictly curse.

Kristina, 41, was a professional dancer – a role she held for eight years – on the long-running show, starting in 2008.

During her time on the programme, she had a number of public relationships with fellow dancers and competitors.

She once romanced Vincent Simone – who quit the series in 2012 – before embarking on a relationship with boxer Joe Calzaghe years later after she mentored him.

Meanwhile Sean and Katya have both apologised for their smooch, claiming it was a “one-off”.
