Kristina chatted exclusively to the Daily Star and revealed how fans used to send her some strange requests but it's all stopped now since she's become "boring" and a parent.

She told us: "We used to get strange requests all the time but we'd all often have a little giggle with the girls at the back of the show.

"We saw all sorts of things but we tended to smile and laugh, some marriage proposals and some god knows what proposals.

"Send me a picture of your hands, send me a picture of your… You can delete and ignore and I'm sure there are plenty of ladies in that position that receive all sorts of things.

"I think I became a really boring mum so no one sends me messages now.

"It happens very rarely now, well still sometimes, but it's mainly more in a respectful way nowadays."

Since leaving the show, Kristina has set up her own dance academy called Bespoke Ballroom where she helps teach kids her craft.

The dancer has also set up a second business with her partner Ben – a Wellness Academy called Soo Yoga.

Kristina explained: "We work very well together and we are very good at giving each other space and understanding our strengths and weaknesses.

"We both teach different classes, but it works, I can't even imagine working with anyone else. We started it together but it's extremely hard. Like every other family-run business, it's extremely challenging right now with all the rises.

"It is always a challenge but I wouldn't work with anyone else but Ben because we know how to work together add we do it so well."

Ben also has two children from a previous marriage, twin daughters Harriette and Isabelle.
