Week 7 of series 12 of Strictly Come Dancing the BBC’s most popular show is underway and with Scott Mills the most recent casualty of the show it seems that Simon Webb is well under pressure. Kristina is not slowing down and is pushing Simon to the absolute limit to ensure he gets much needed exposure after his career took a down-turn when Blue separated. The 36-year-old professional dancer revealed the couple’s gruelling schedule sees her travelling up and down the country to rehearse with Simon, who's on tour with the reformed boy-band Blue, and can take place any time between 6am and midnight. As well as training and performing the couple are also contracted to promote Strictly on local and national media TV and radio shows.
Kristina recently told the Daily Mail that she wouldn’t have been able to maintain the tough demands of Simon’s schedule, but she says a routine test this year that revealed she was intolerant to a series of foods, and led her to completely overhaul her diet and given her more energy than ever. The super-fit Russian dancer has often said that she battles with her weight once the show is over, particularly her thighs. Once she starts dancing though, the weight soon drops off.
Having been in the bottom two twice, Simon and Kristina have had their fair share of stress as well. Not only have they had to dance each week they have also performed extra dances to fight for their place on the hit TV show. With her food tolerances under control and Simon’s fitness hitting new highs the couple hope to hold on for a least a couple more weeks, but realistically can Simon go all the way and raise that glitter ball of victory?
