Ola Jordan and Kristina Rihanoff reportedly decided to quit 'Strictly Come Dancing' after they had a bitter falling out over who was the most glamorous of all the professional dancers
Ola Jordan and Kristina Rihanoff reportedly quit 'Strictly Come Dancing' after a bitter feud.
The professional dancers are said to have come to blows during their time on the BBC One show over who was considered to be the most glamorous of all the dancers.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Ola and Kristina were friends but jealousy took over and it created an incredibly uncomfortable atmosphere for all of the pros.
"James [Jordan, Ola's husband] wanted Ola to take centre stage as the main star of Strictly and Kristina hated that. There were many whispers and rumours spread about each other and the friendship ended.
"The reality is most of the dancers are very happy and get on. But trouble seemed to follow Ola, James and Kristina wherever they went. Put it this way, no one is upset about them not being around this year."
The news of their feud comes after 'Strictly Come Dancing' legend Brendan Cole insists he isn't worried about change on the show as long as he keeps his place.
He said: "Change can be a good thing as long as Anton [Du Beke] and I don't change we're okay."
Meanwhile, Ola previously claimed she was banned from wearing sexy outfits on the dancing show.
She said: "I loved wearing the catsuits but after a while, they stopped me. I think they thought they were too sexy."
Whilst a source added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "At the time Ola was outraged, she thought it was a fix and another example of how they manipulate votes.
"She felt like the BBC were holding her back by not letting her wear the catsuit again. They clearly felt it was an unfair advantage and were manipulating the vote themselves in their own way."
