The heartwarming update comes just hours after it was reported by the Daily Mail that Strictly host Claudia Winkleman had to issue an apology to Kristina and Ben after claiming they began their romance whilst participating in the dance show back in 2013.

Claudia, 50, made the comment on Monday, whilst recording Friday's edition of The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan on Channel 4.

The couple appeared on Strictly Come Dancing together

"The couple I knew had got together were Ben and Kristina," Claudia revealed, according to MailOnline's Richard Eden.

Following Claudia's comments, Kristina threatened to take legal action against the presenter but was soon contacted with a heartfelt apology.

In the message,seen by the Daily Mail's Richard Eden, Claudia reveals she is "so, so sorry," before clarifying that she misunderstood the question she was asked on stage.

"I thought the question was about who has found long-time love [via Strictly]," she wrote.

Kristina and Ben were partnered together in the 2013 series of Strictly and made headlines when they embarked on a relationship a year later, in 2014, following the end of his marriage to Abby, his wife of 11 years.
