Ben Cohen’s dumped pink babydoll nightie wife Abby to launch lingerie company with Neil Ruddock’s wife Leah
She’s had one hellish year but now Abby Cohen is putting her life back together
While hubby Ben’s new girlfriend Kristina Rihanoff poses for calendars in skimpy underwear, we can reveal that Abby wants to help launch a whole new lingerie range and model it too.
And as she hits the gym to get into perfect shape for a sexy photoshoot, she’s on the lookout for a new man.
The lingerie venture is the brainchild of her close friend Leah, wife of ex-soccer star Neil “Razor” Ruddock. Leah told in an exclusive interview how she has been supporting Abby after the break-up of her 11-year marriage.
“Abby has been to hell and back,” said Leah.
“It has been a nightmare, because Ben was her whole world. But she is finally getting the fun back into her life.”
The two women have been close since their children appeared on Big Star’s Little Star early last year, when Abby, 37, was still wed. But her marriage broke down this year and she and Ben are now divorcing.
Abby believes Kristina, the Russian dancer Ben partnered on Strictly Come Dancing in 2013, is the reason he left. But the new couple deny an affair – Kristina, 38, insists they started dating only after Ben walked out.

Leah said: “Abby just wants a fresh start and a new life now. She’s been living with the stress of her marriage split for so long and she’s told me she would love to find a new man.
“I have vowed to set her up with someone amazing. That’s my mission and she is up for it.”
Abby has been hitting the gym after vowing to get her body into the best shape it has ever been. Leah went on: “She’s told me she’s been training really hard and has a goal of three to four more weeks to get herself into mint condition. She doesn’t need to – I’ve always thought what a great figure she has. It’s incredible.
“But she wants to look at herself and feel great and sexy, I think. It’s the start of a new chapter.”
