We can reveal that 56-year-old Latin supremo suffered heartache at the hands of none other than ex-Strictly pro dancer Kristina Rihanoff! In 2003 her husband Corky Ballas left her for the now 39-year-old. And the pair stayed together for five years! Shirley and Corky were only officially divorced four years later in 2007. Crikey!
