Kristina, 39, has recently come back from a trip to Los Angeles, where she met up with her best friend and also paid a visit to the Dancing with the Stars set. In her latest HELLO! Online blog post, she revealed: "I'm off to LA next week. I'm so excited. I'm seeing my best friend, she lives in Seattle but we're meeting in LA. I can't wait for our girly catch up time and the sunny weather. It'll be a very quick getaway but I'm really looking forward to it! I'll also be watching Dancing with the Stars and seeing Len Goodman and my other Strictly friends – I can't wait!"

During her short break, Kristina paid a trip to celebrity favourite Soho House in West Hollywood and also day-tripped to Santa Monica. The mum-of-one was the envy of her followers, also sharing a poolside shot from her hotel. "Hello sunshine!" she captioned it. Kristina and Ben welcomed their daughter Mila in June last year. The couple are preparing to celebrate their little girl's first birthday, with Kristina admitting that she still has to plan something.

"I can't believe it, time has flown so fast, it's just crazy," said Kristina. "She's just totally amazing. Every day there's something new about her. She's trying to stand up now, and walk desperately, she's crawling all around the house; we've babyproofed the house. I have to think about what I'm going to do for her in June. More than anything I want to have my family around me and my mum will be coming, she already bought her ticket to fly from Russia. It will be a lovely family affair as always and hopefully Mila will get lots of toys and beautiful outfits!"
