Strictly Come Dancing star Vincent Simone won the 2008 series with Rachel Stevens

When Russian dancer Kristina Rihanoff first came to the UK to work on Strictly Come Dancing, there was one person who took her under her wing: Susan Duddy, the girlfriend of Strictly professional Vincent Simone.

Little did Susan know that months later Kristina would shatter her relationship with Vincent and leave her facing giving birth to their child alone.

Last week, pregnant Susan fled back to her native Northern Ireland after Vincent, 30, ’fessed up to his fling with Kristina, 31.

And although Vince is said to be desperate to win Susan back, friends say she’s told him: ‘No chance.’

A source close to Susan tells Now: ‘Vincent had been keen to get married, but even though they’d been together for a year Susan wanted to be sure.

'Now there’s no chance of them getting back together. It’s very sad.'

Vincent first got amorous with Kristina – who partnered John Sergeant on the last series – during the Strictly tour, which started in January.

The first Susan, 36, heard of it was when she received an anonymous phone call that sent her world into turmoil.
