Simon Webbe has denied rumours of a romance between him and his 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner Kristina Rihanoff after the pair performed a sexy rumba routine on Saturday night's show (11.10.14)
Simon Webbe says dating his 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner is off limits.
The Blue singer has assured viewers that his relationship with professional dancer Kristina Rihanoff - who previously dated her former celebrity partner Joe Calzaghe - is purely platonic, despite them performing a particularly raunch rumba on last week's show.
He told the Metro newspaper: "It's the rumba. It's one of the most sexual dances that there is. I was just concentrating on the moves. Sorry if it offended anyone. For me, I thought the choreography was amazing.
He added: "All I can say is that we talk, we dance, we high five and go our separate ways until the next day."
Despite finding himself in the bottom two last week, Simon, 36, has full confidence in the blonde beauty and her routines, and believes their work ethic makes them the perfect match.
He explained: "She knows what my strengths are. I'm not really that interested in taking my top off and doing a waltz but if it's for entertainment and it feels comfortable by all means.
"When I met her, the one thing I noticed about her was her professionalism. She's a hard worker and a grafter. I have come into Strictly to learn. That's where we have a synergy straight away."
