Boxer Joe Calzaghe encouraged girlfriend to strip for calendar
Strictly Come dancing star Kristina Rihanoff has revealed that her boxer boyfriend Joe Calzaghe encouraged her to bare all for a calendar shoot.
From revealing black lingerie on a motorbike to wearing nothing but a fur coat, the 35-year-old decided to show off her 'sexier side' to fans in the steamy photoshoot.
Kristina said it was her boyfriend of three years who persuaded her to show off her toned body in a variety of poses, from demure to downright daring.
"It was actually Joe who suggested I should make a calendar," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
"When we were deciding what kind of shots to include, he said I should go for something a bit more 'bad a**' - so that's what I've done.
"I'm very relaxed in front of the camera now. When you are a dancer you learn how to use your body for the camera, you know what angles to pose and I'm much more confident than I was.'
Kristina, whose celebrity partner Colin Salmon was voted off Strictly this year in week five, said she didn't let her boyfriend on the set of the sexy shoot.
She added: "It was just me and the photographer. Joe wasn't with me when I shot it, but he's really pleased with the results."
