Kristina Rihanoff blasts unglamorous X Factor
Kristina Rihanoff does not believe 'X Factor' has the same level of "glamour and class" as 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Kristina Rihanoff thinks 'X Factor' doesn't have the "glamour and class" of 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The professional star - who is teamed with actor Colin Salmon on the BBC show - does not believes its rival is as good as it used to be, and thinks the voting off of Carolynne Poole in the first week proves the programme is a "joke".
She said: "I don't want to go on about it, but the elimination of Carolynne just proves it's an absolute joke.
"It doesn't come close to the glamour and class of 'Strictly'."
Kristina is now in full-on 'Strictly' mode and admits she becomes very conscious about her figure when the show begins.
She said: "My body confidence depends on the time of year. Now, working all hours of the day, I feel in my best shape. When 'Strictly' stops I become more conscious. I'm careful about what I eat and exercise as much as I can."
