Ben Cohen has reportedly invited his 'Strictly Come Dancing' star girlfriend Kristina Rihanoff to stay with him at his family home
Ben Cohen's estranged wife is furious he's opened his marital home to his dancer girlfriend.
The 37-year-old retired sports star has reportedly enraged his divorcing wife Abby, 37, after he told his 'Strictly Come Dancing' star girlfriend Kristina Rihanoff that she'll always be welcome at their five-bedroom home on the outskirts of Northampton.
A family source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Abby's not at all happy at the prospect of Kristina staying there, but she knows there is nothing she can do but grin and bear it."
The 37-year-old hunk has moved back into the £1.75 million property he shared during his marriage, while Abby and their twin seven-year-old girls are currently living in a nearby home that Ben has rented.
The luxurious property has been on the market for the last six months and is less than 90 miles from the London studios where Kristina is currently partnering Irish singer Daniel O'Donnell on the latest series of 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
However, it remains unclear if Kristina has accepted Ben's invitation to stay with him at the property.
This comes after it was recently reported Ben and his estranged wife had decided to live together because of the cost of their mortgage.
A source previously said: "Ben thought he'd be able to sell the house and rent somewhere for Abby and the kids before their divorce went through.
"But there's been little interest and the cost of the mortgage and renting has become very expensive.
"He gets to see his kids more, but it has been really awkward for him and Abby."
