Happy Birthday to me (and Rachel Riley)!

 It is Agent Triple P's birthday today so we need no excuse to post some more pictures of one of the few famous (at least in Britain) people also born on January 11th.

We wonder what particular aspect of pert TV quiz Countdown numbers whizz and science presenter Rachel Riley we respond to?

We last gazed, raptly, upon Miss Riley's derriere when she was in the 2013 series of Strictly Come Dancing. Going out in week six, as she really had no dancing skills whatsoever (a state of affairs I have a great deal of sympathy with), viewers were stunned to learn that the 'Curse of Strictly' had struck again.

This is an observable phenomenon where celebrity dancers on Strictly either break up with their existing partners while on the show or hook up with their professional partner romantically (or both).  After she left the show (and her husband (first, she claims)) Rachel started an affair with her professional dance partner Pasha Kovalev.  

They are still together, although what Oxford Maths graduate Rachel and Siberian born dancer Pasha find to talk about is intriguing.  She is currently learning Russian so she can talk to his family. 

What is Russian for 'bend over', I wonder?
