The voluptuous dancer shows her ex, boxer Joe Calzaghe, exactly what he's missing - improving her already amazing hourglass figure with a session of "Lunchtime lipo" before stripping off for her calendar.

STRICTLY beauty Kristina Rihanoff has had four inches of fat "frozen" off her thighs before posing in sexy lingerie for a new calendar photo shoot.

The professional dancer tried the latest Harley Street non-invasive fat freezing treatment to tone her legs, which she revealed as her least favourite part of her body. Kristina, who is partnered with rugby hunk Ben Cohen on this year's series of the glitzy BBC show, wanted to shave inches off her inner thighs. The super-fit Russian dancer, 36, had the pioneering Lipoglaze treatment in Harley Street.

The hour and a half fat-freezing treatment at the LoveLite clinic was performed in August so she would be ready for her sexy 2014 calendar, in which she poses in a selection of underwear and basques. The stunning blonde said: "Even dancers can have problem areas on their bodies which they struggle to get toned.

"I have always had stubborn areas of fat, which I just can’t shift on my inner thigh. Even when I am dancing and rehearsing eight hours a day I still can’t shift this area. I had heard about the Lipoglaze treatment from a friend and thought I would give it a go. I was a bit sceptical about it at first but it’s really worked and I can see that it’s shifted nearly two inches off each inner thigh. The final results took about six to eight weeks to see but the reduction is clear to me and my thighs look and feel noticeably firmer and leaner. I was in great shape for when I did my calendar shoot and could see the difference."

The dancer added: "One other plus was that it’s completely non-invasive so there was no downtime at all. I had it done in the morning and I was rehearsing in the dance studio later that day."

The non-invasive treatment, which has been dubbed "Lunchtime Lipo" as results can be achieved in just one hour, is completely pain-free and has become popular with celebs wanting to perfect and contour their bodies. Celebrities who have had the treatment include Made in Chelsea star Binky Felstead, Apprentice runner-up Luisa Zissman and TOWIE’s Tom Pearce. The Lipoglaze treatment works by gently warming and then rapidly freezing the treatment area which kills the fat cells and allows them to waste away naturally through the body.
