Kristina Rihanoff would do Strictly Come Dancing Christmas special

Kristina Rhianoff may return to 'Strictly Come Dancing' for the annual festive special.

The 39-year-old dancer has no regrets about quitting the show after eight years, and though she insists she is currently too busy with her and partner Ben Cohen's three-month-old daughter Mila to want to go back on the programme, she won't rule out a comeback in the future.

She said: "I've been watching it ['Strictly Come Dancing'] and it's a little weird to be on the other side. I wouldn't have wanted to go back. Not because I didn't love the show, but 'Strictly' has such an intense schedule.

"Having a family makes our priorities shift so much. I don't want to miss Mila growing up. But never say never. I would maybe go back for the Christmas special."

The blonde beauty isn't worried about shedding all her baby weight and doesn't think she'll ever get her pre-pregnancy figure back.

She said: "It's unfair there's so much pressure on women to look a certain way. There's a pressure to bounce back after having a baby.

"I'm not like that - I've put on a few pounds. I don't think I'm going to get back to the same shape as I was before.

"I'm not obsessed with being skinny. I want it to happen naturally. I can't diet because I'm breastfeeding.

"New mums have to be realistic and give themselves a break. I'm not back in my skinny jeans just yet."

Kristina admits she finds it "hard" to feel out of shape, but her daughter's needs come first.

She added to Closer magazine: "To all the other new mums out there, I'm in exactly the same position.

"You feel vulnerable and you are out of shape, which is especially hard for me because I'm a dancer. But when you have a baby, everything takes a different perspective. Mila's the most important thing to me. So being a certain size now comes secondary, it's insignificant."
