Strictly Come Dancing: Meet Simon Webbe and Kristina Rihanoff

Blue band member Simon Webbe is hoping to draw upon his boy band dance moves to find success in Strictly...

Boy band Blue have never been recognised for their brilliant dance moves, but that isn’t going to stop Simon Webbe from trying to revive them in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing. 


“There’s always Blue moves out there,” he told “The little shoulder shrug and this, that and the other.”

His professional dancing partner Kristina looks less than impressed. This year, she’s in it to win it. 

“Of course I would like to make it to the final. It’s my seventh year on the show. So fingers crossed it’s my lucky seven!” she says. 

She’s already started cracking the whip to make sure Simon is in with a fighting chance – “She’s in my phone as Kristina “THE BOSS” in capitals…” – not that Simon seems to mind.

“I’m not here to lose, put it that way,” he says. 


Strictly Come Dancing starts on Friday 26th September at 9:00pm on BBC1
