James Jordan Slams ‘Strictly Come Dancing' Pro Kristina Rihanoff, Claiming She's ‘Playing The Innocent Card'


James Jordan is never afraid of speaking his mind, and the latest star in the firing line is ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ pro Kristina Rihanoff.

Earlier this month, Kristina revealed that she nearly quit the show, after being forced to deny rumours that she was more than friends with her married dance partner Ben Cohen in 2014.

Is there anyone James hadn't had a go at? Um, no.

However, James thinks she was telling porkies, and is now accusing Kristina of pretending to be innocent, adding that there’s no way she’d ever leave the BBC1 show.

“Trust me, she won’t leave ‘Strictly’.”

Kristina's friendship with Ben hit headlines

James left the show back in 2014, however, his wife Ola is set to return to the dancefloor for this year’s series.

Ola’s career was left in doubt though, when an accident while training for the risky reality TV show ‘The Jump’ left her with "career-changing" injuries.

The dancer underwent knee surgery, and is now believed to be making a full recovery.

This isn’t the first time James has made controversial comments, and if anything, his verdict on Kristina is rather tame.

Last week, he hit out at ‘Strictly’ bosses, slamming their decision to allow a same-sex dancing couple.

“I have nothing against same-sex couples, if they want to go and do their own competitions,” he said. “But ballroom and Latin dancing is about a man dancing with a woman – that’s fact.

“It annoys me that people like Craig can say this because he’s gay. That’s the only reason he’s pushing it.”
