Police called to Ben Cohen's home

Police were called to Ben Cohen's marital home after an argument with his estranged wife Abby.

The 36-year-old rugby star - who is dating his former 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner Kristina Rihanoff, 37 - and Abby Cohen are in the middle of a bitter divorce and friends reportedly called the police to their Northampton home after a row got out of control.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "The divorce has been a difficult and painful one and things are still very fraught between them.

"There have been a lot of heated arguments but this time friends felt the situation was dangerously close to getting out of control."

When police arrived at the £1.75 million property, which Ben recently moved back into to renovate before selling, they decided there was no cause for them to intervene.

However, an insider said: "Pals are still very worried about Ben and Abby. They feel that their relationship is like a pressure cooker just waiting to explode."

Both Ben and Kristina have denied that they had an affair when they were partnered together on 'Strictly' in 2013, despite accusations from Abby, and the blonde dancer has been helping Ben in between rehearsing for the new series.

A source told the Sunday People newspaper: "Kristina has been very supportive. She has been in London focusing on her dance rehearsals for 'Strictly' but is trying to help Ben when she has time off."
