Kristina couldn’t hide her excitement when she got partnered with Jason at the launch show and now we know why.
‘Growing up in Russia he was popular. We had a poster of him and Kylie Minogue on the wall and his songs were played all the time,’ she reveals in an interview with OK! Extra.
‘It’s unbelievable that all these years later I get to dance with him on TV – it feels like a dream.’
Meanwhile, Kristina spent last night celebrating her 34th birthday with Strictly chums including pro dancers Robin, Natalie, Flavia, Artem, James and Ola.
Let’s hope they’re not too hungover for training today!
