Sinitta shares video of a heavily pregnant and glowing Kristina Rihanoff at her baby shower

Strictly Come Dancing star Kristina Rihanoff was a picture of happiness at her baby shower which was held in London designer store Bulgari.

The Russian-born dancer is just weeks away from giving birth to her first child with Ben Cohen.

The lavish event included 1980s pop singer Sinitta who shared a video from the function on Twitter via her Periscope account.

The 38-year-old Strictly professional wore a black dress with a pink tie around her waist, accentuating her baby bump.

Kristina can be seen smiling and waving in the video shot by So Macho singer Sinitta, who also provided a running commentary for her 160,000 followers on Twitter.

Sinitta also shot footage of the wrapped up presents, attending guests and the plush surroundings in Bulgari.

Kristina met rugby player Ben when they were partnered on Strictly in 2013. They were the eighth couple to be eliminated in November.

The friendship became a romantic relationship after Ben, 37, split from his wife Abby with whom he has two children.

Kristina signed up for Celebrity Big Brother and announced her pregnancy inside the famous Elstree house in January.

At the time, she defended her decision to go public with the news.

"I wanted to keep (the pregnancy) to myself at first but then I spoke to the producers and what I felt was that if I was treated differently in the house - if I was always fed and could opt out of tasks - I felt that the housemates would be very upset with me and I wanted to be fair," she added.

"It would stress me out to keep it to myself."

Ben's former spouse Abbey Blayney told the Daily Mirror: "I'm Ben Cohen's ex-wife. If it wasn't for that woman me and Ben would still be married. But so what? I'm moving on."

She added: "Ben's getting on with his life. I wish him well with his new family."
