The Strictly Come Dancing star was met with a mixture of cheers and boos as she emerged to greet show host Emma Willis during Tuesday night’s live eviction.
The pregnant 38-year-old dancer, who is expecting a baby with her partner Ben Cohen, was overjoyed when she was informed she had received the lowest amount of public votes and was shortly set to be reunited with her rugby player boyfriend.

Evicted: Strictly Come Dancing ballroom professional dancer Kristina Rihanoff has left the Celebrity Big Brother house on Tuesday after the third live eviction
‘Oh my god! Thank you so much!’, she kept repeating as she bade farewell to her shocked housemates.
‘I’m so happy!’, the Siberian Siren enthused as she danced her way up the stairs to meet Emma, leaving her fellow nominees John Partridge, Danniella Westbrook and Tiffany Pollard stunned by the announcement.
'I'm over the moon! It's all I was praying for, the arguments got so vicious in the house. Pregnant or not pregnant - it's not really my game', Kristina explained during her exit interview.
She also opened up about her decision to announce her baby news live on the show, which proved controversial with viewers.

Not looking back: The 38-year-old blonde was met by a mixture of cheers and boos by the animated crowd, but didn't seem bothered in the slightest
Kristina admitted she hadn’t originally intended to tell everyone, but felt it was necessary to explain her special treatment in the house.
She said: 'I wanted to keep it to myself at first but then I spoke to the producers and what I felt was that if I was treated differently in the house – if I was always fed [properly] and could opt out of tasks – I felt that the housemates would be very upset with me and I wanted to be fair. It would stress me out to keep it to myself.'
The blonde beauty added: 'Also I’m growing – I’m like a hoover – I eat everything I see in front of me!'

Kristina's pregnancy bombshell came as a shock to many, including boyfriend Ben's estranged wife Abby.
The couple had only recently confirmed their relationship following months of speculation surrounding their close bond fostered when they were partnered together on Strictly.
Insisting her announcement wasn't a calculated move, Kristina revealed: 'I was signed up for the show in mid-November, I didn't know anything about it [at the time].
'It was such a shock when I found out I was pregnant over Christmas, I had to tell the producers and they convinced me to do the show, they said I could opt out from tasks.'
Kristina also confessed she was very surprised David Bowie's ex-wife Angie had nominated her for elimination in spite of her constantly sticking up for the 66-year-old during her clashes with feisty American contestant Tiffany Pollard.
'I know it came from a kind place, but it took me by surprise because we all stood up for her and when she had a chance to say something to Tiffany she backed down', she told Emma.

'It became very aggressive. I'm a kind of peace-maker. I hate fights, it was getting really hard for me. It's a row in the bedroom every night', she said.
Discussing her close bond with John Partridge, who has been branded a 'liar' and 'manipulative' by several housemates including Gemma Collins, she revealed she had made a friend for life.
She said: 'We have a lot in common, a similar background. He's very outspoken.
'But for me, Gemma is the one who's very manipulative. I personally was very disappointed, I liked her at the beginning. I've seen this vicious person who is there for herself.'
'Let her win - she'll be the biggest b***h in the world!', she cattily added of her arch-enemy, before adding that she thought Scotty T would be the public favourite for the win.
John had a lucky escape; the former EastEnders star was met with a surge of boos every time he appeared on screen and seemed resigned to the fact he was next to leave.
'I don’t care what people think of me, I don’t care if people boo me. I've not done anything in here that I've been ashamed off. I'd rather be booed for that than be a b***h', he told Big Brother in the Diary Room.
Tuesday night’s installment of Celebrity Big Brother also showed the exit of Angie, who became the third contestant to voluntarily leave the show, after Jonathan Cheban and David Gest walked.
