Kristina Rihanoff wants Harry Styles to partner her on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 35-year-old dancer is keen to take to the floor with the 19-year-old singer because she thinks he would be happy to make the routines "sexy", but admitted she would have loved to have teamed up with McFly drummer Harry Judd, who won the Glitterball Trophy in 2011 with Aliona Vilani.
She said: "If I could have any celebrity to dance with I thought I would like someone like Harry Judd, a very handsome and gifted boy from a very likeable band. I think that is the right combination.
"Harry Styles. He's a bit of a naughty boy, though! I think he would be happy to make the dances sexy."
Kristina - who has been dating retired professional boxer Joe Calzaghe since partnering him on the BBC show in 2009 - admits she developed a "girl crush" on Kimberley Walsh when the Girls Aloud star performed on the programme last year.
She explained: "Louis Smith was there, and Denise van Outen, Lisa Riley and Dani Harmer. It was great to see how addicted they've become to dancing.
"You make great friends during the show. I've kept in touch with Kimberley Walsh from last year. I was so taken by her. I had a little girl crush because she's so lovely and unaffected by fame.
"We ended up in the same resort because Joe and I went to Barbados on holiday and Kimberley was there with her family. We had great fun together.
"I'm also still close to Kara Tointon from the 2010 series."
While Kristina is yet to be asked back for the 10th anniversary series of 'Strictly' this year, the blonde beauty is keen to do the show again in its "most exciting year".
She added to the Daily Star newspaper: "I would love to do it again this year if they ask me. I think it's going to be the most exciting year.
"Last year was incredible and the ratings showed that."
