Strictly's Kristina Rhianoff admits she UNDERSTANDS Katya Jones and Seann Walsh's betrayal

However, former Strictly professional Kristina Rihanoff - who is now in a relationship with her former Strictly partner Ben Cohen - is sympathetic to the pair and urged people to give them a chance.

She said: "I don't think "It Takes Two" was the right programme to apologise, because this is about personal lives, not dancing".

"I think she broke protocol over that".

Jon was quick to ask her opinion on whether Seann and Katya were at risk from being eliminated from the competition this weekend due to their behaviour.

"But I say get on with the job and show people what you're made of and show people: "OK, this is what I did, I've been employed to do this job, I'm going to go on, do the job, get on with it and do it well and do it professionally". Also I have a family so I can't really see the connection.

'You prepare for the show, you tour.

During the conversation, Kristina claimed the pair had suffered a "terrible" week but urged them to "get themselves together" and move on.

You can always trust Craig to say what no-one else will.

Yankees seeking trade for Gray
It didn't get much better there as he was left off the playoff roster after posting a 4.90 ERA over 30 appearances (23 starts). In today's baseball landscape, that's a breathtakingly forthcoming comment from a GM about his eagerness to trade a player.

Du Beke, who with partner Susannah Constantine was voted off the show in its second week, has said he's "disappointed" with what went on.

"[The celebrity] is very vulnerable right away, having to learn something new".

Speaking to the Daily Mail, he said she should have put a stop to it and added: "It's her job not only to protect her own relationship, but to protect the celebrity's and be the mentor".

But Kristina rejected comparisons to her relationship with Ben.

"And also I have a family, I have a child and we are a family and that's what matters".

The whole nation will have their eyes on Katya and Seann when they take to the dance floor on Saturday's Strictly Come Dancing.

Last week, during Movie Week, the pair scored a combined 32 points from the judges for their Paso Doble. I'd give quite a lot to be in the studio audience this evening (with Rebecca as my plus one, just for fun), but that would mean missing the liveblog, which would be a dereliction of duty.
