Former Strictly and X Factor stars to appear in hit stage show at Preston Guild Hall

KRISTINA Rihanoff and Christopher Maloney are to team up in a new smash hit

dance show that promises to transport audiences on a musical journey through time.

The pair became close pals during their time in ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ – and now

they are to appear together in a nationwide tour of glittering stage show ‘Dance to

the Music’.


The new production will showcase every genre of dance, from the roaring twenties to

the present day, with plenty of sequins and surprises along the way! The production

is the creation of professional dancer and choreographer Kristina, who spent eight

years on hit BBC show ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.

Kristina, who became a parent with partner Ben Cohen in 2016, said: “Dance To The

Music is a totally new show with some breath-taking dance routines that I hope the

audience will love.


“Chris and I have kept in touch ever since we left the Big Brother house and I’m

really excited about working with him. As every fan of The X Factor will know, Chris

has got a fantastic singing voice, and I’m very lucky to be joined by him.

“It’s a dance production like no other because it includes everything from tap and the

Charleston, right through to modern Latin and Ballroom. There’s even Break-

Dancing and Hip-Hop!”


In addition to Christopher’s vocals, Kristina will once again be paired with her former

professional dance partner Robin Windsor, who himself starred on ‘Strictly’ for four

years. Also gracing the stage will be Oksana Platero, who partnered Judge Rinder

on Series 14 of the BBC show, becoming famous for her jaw-dropping lifts! Oksana’s

husband Jonathan is also in the cast, as is top singer-songwriter Beth Sherburn.


Dance to the Music’ will be touring with 38 dates across the UK, throughout January

and February of 2018. Christopher, a former finalist on ‘The X Factor’, said: “I’m

looking forward to having a great time in such an exciting show! Hopefully I’ll get to

do to the odd bit of cha cha cha myself, as well as singing my heart out!”
