Strictly Come Dancing 2013: Ben Cohen reckons his butt has ‘done me good so far’ and Kristina is obsessed with his bulge!

On tonight’s third live show of the series, Ben Cohen and Kristina Rihanoff will dance the Rumba to Adele’s version of Make You Feel My Love.

If there’s one thing that has been causing Ben a few problems this week, it’s his manliness! His rear end has been getting him into a bit of bother and his bulge has been giving Kristina all sorts of hot flushes.

“The first two weeks have been the most nerve-wracking things I have ever done, they have been so hard, it’s different when you’re playing rugby. I’ve never danced before… I’ve come from the drunken stumble. I’m getting the confidence up but I’m getting there,” Ben explained when asked how last week went for him.

One thing that has been causing a bit of a problem lately is Ben’s butt… On Saturday night, Craig Revel Horwood told Ben that he had to tuck his rear under in a little bit. We also reported yesterday that Ben’s rugby butt has been causing a few problems for the wardrobe department as well as they can’t find trousers to fit him properly… Oh dear!

He said, a little embarrassed: “My bottom, bless it, has come into a lot of criticism recently and all I’ve had in the last couple of weeks is to tuck my bottom under and my frame… it has done me good so far!”


In the first week, Ben and Kristina scored 19 and last week they had a score of 25, so they’re slowly working their way up the leader board. Will this week prove to be another success?

Kristina said: “I think he’s one of those perfect examples of the show, when he starts kind of slowly and then learns and gets better. He works so hard, it’s unbelievable.. so many hours, I’m really proud of him”.

In one VT shown on last night’s It Takes Two on BBC Two, Kristina is seemingly obsessed with Ben’s bulge… of the muscle kind, of course. If there was a record for the amount of times the word ‘Muscles’ could be used in one VT, Kristina would have win it hands down.

The couple will be dancing the rumba on this evening’s show which is a tough dance to carry off, technically speaking. They will also be dancing to Adele’s version of Make You Feel My Love.

Strictly Come Dancing continues this evening on BBC One/HD at 6:30pm.
