'Strictly Come Dancing' partners Colin Salmon and Kristina Rihannoff are "barely speaking" because the professional is furious with the actor's apparent lack of commitment to the show
Colin Salmon and Kristina Rihannoff are "barely speaking".
The 49-year-old actor infuriated his 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner when he had to fly to Canada to film TV show 'Arrow' last week and though the professional dancer accompanied him on the trip, they managed just 10 hours of rehearsals.
As a result, the pair reportedly had a furious row as Kristina is concerned Colin is not taking the competition seriously, and they have barely spoken since.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Kristina is desperate to win. She was angry he flew out to Canada.
"They're barely speaking at the moment apart from when she shouts at him for getting his steps wrong."
Kristina admitted last week she was "seriously concerned" about their performance because of all the travelling they had done.
She said: "Coping with the jet lag is hard. We're trying our best but it's not at all easy. I'm really worried tiredness will affect our performance.
"We haven't had much time to rehearse, either. We had our first proper day of rehearsal on Wednesday - we squeezed in a bit of training on set between Colin's scenes.
"As well as our routine, I have a professional number, with a solo, to do. I hope it will be OK but I'm seriously concerned."
