Countdown presenter Rachel Riley has revealed that she butts heads with her Strictly Come Dancing pro partner over an issue so many couples will be able to relate to.
The 32-year-old – who met Pasha on the 2013 instalment of the BBC dance show – opened up about her relationship in an interview with the Radio Times.
The maths whizz revealed that her boyfriend of four years teases her about her addiction to US TV shows.
“I like American late-night shows, like Trevor Noah, John Oliver and Bill Maher – I’ve got them all on series link,” she began.
“Pasha finds them funny, but I guess because he’s from Russia, where they’ve had such bad politics in their time and couldn’t do anything about it.”
Continuing she added: ‘He’s kind of switched off to all the politics, so I tend to watch them by myself.’
And on Pasha’s decision to upgrade to a 55 inch TV Rachel joked: “I had one a quarter of the size that I thought was perfectly fine.
“But he said ‘We need a bigger one,’ and then he said, ‘Now we’ve got a TV, we need speakers’.”
The presenter also revealed another TV moment that she struggles with, confessing that she finds it hard to watch Pasha dancing with other women on the popular BBC Series.
“It’s left its mark. It just makes me feel nervous – so I make myself busy when it’s on. I leave Pasha to it,” she said.
But luckily the loved up pair – who are both vegans – have found TV common ground in the form of the Great British Bake Off, and enjoy tuning in to watch contestants vie for Paul and Prue’s baking seal of approval.
“We’re both vegan so we loved vegan week,” she told the publication.
And despite their minor domestic disagreements it seems that the duo couldn’t be happier together.
Speaking to the Express previously Rachel said: “I am in love now. I don’t feel I have to get married. I don’t think I need that pressure any more.
“I don’t worry about getting married or whether he is taking a long time in the morning or whether he has done the dishes.
“That does not really bother me in the long term. I feel settled.”
Rachel was previously married to Jamie Gilbert for 16 months, after dating for nine years.
