Ben Cohen writing tell-all book

Ben Cohen will set the record straight on his rumoured love triangle in a tell-all autobiography.

The 'Strictly Come Dancing' star - who featured on the BBC dancing competition in 2013 with professional dance partner Kristina Rihanoff - will reveal a "different perspective" to his personal life, including his supposed romances and the tragic passing of his father, who lost his life while trying to break up a fight in a Northampton nightclub in 2000.

On the book, he explained: "It should be out in September. I've got a ghost writer. They have been spending many hours going through all the different parts of my life."

The 36-year-old World Cup-winning rugby player recently split from his wife of 11 years, Abigail, amid rumours he had grown close to his former dance partner, and he hinted intimate details of his private life will be revealed in the book, because he doesn't want it all to be about his rugby career.

He told The Sun newspaper: "I didn't want to create just a sporting book, about how hard I had trained and became the greatest. That would be boring. It's a different view on things - and it is very well written. It's my personal journey and a different perspective."
