The 28-year-old actress, who is currently dating billionaire Nick Candy, teased that she wouldn't be disappointed to wake up with the Russian in bed alongside her.
Valance told the Daily Star Sunday: "Artem is very hot. I certainly wouldn't kick him out of bed on a Sunday morning."
However, she added that their working relationship is often difficult, joking: "I want to strangle him from time to time too."
Valance has previously dismissed press reports about a rift between her and Chigvintsev's girlfriend Kara Tointon as "boring" and "predictable".
The Australian was in the Strictly bottom two for the second time last night (November 27), despite impressing the judges with her foxtrot and picking up 34 points.
Strictly continues next Saturday (December 3) at 7pm on BBC One.
