Ben Cohen wants to go dancing

Ben Cohen wants to go dancing with Kristina Rihanoff.

The retired rugby hunk asked his beautiful partner - who he met when they were partnered together on 'Strictly Come Dancing' in 2013 - if she wanted to let off some steam in the ballroom with him one evening last week, but she snubbed his offer and he ended up going to the gym instead.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the National Reality TV awards in London on Thursday (29.09.16), he said when asked if they still go dancing together following their successful run on the show: "I asked her the other day if she wants to go dancing together and she just completely ignored me. I was like, 'Oh OK, I'll just go to the gym.' "

The pair got together shortly after Ben split from his childhood sweetheart Abi, with whom he has eight-year-old twin daughters Harriette and Isabelle, two years ago and they now have a three-month-old daughter called Milena.

And, although they're busy running around after their new baby, the couple think it's important they have date nights.

Kristina, 39, said: "Date nights are important when you have a little baby. She's amazing, she's really really good."

The blonde bombshell just wants to focus on Milena for the time being but would also like to drop her baby weight, although she doesn't think her body will ever be the same again.

She said recently: "I think my body will never be the same after having a baby but it's fine because she's the most important thing in the world ... Hopefully I'll lose this weight but I don't want to be obsessed with it. I'm breast feeding... you can't diet or anything."
