Crave. Open on Sky Digital reports comments from Christina's choreographer
Tina Landon who says Ricky and Christina seemed reluctant to get close
during their video shoot. Tina admits, "They're both more on the shy side.
There's one scene you'll see them embracing but you know, they aren't flirtatious
with each other - so when I was placing them, it was almost like children.
It was like, 'uh, Christina, can you get just a little closer to Ricky?
Uh, no honey, a little closer, could you get your hips on his hips?' It's
really funny since they both got picked on for their over-the-top sexy
videos. I had to practically shove them together for this one embrace scene.
It was pretty funny."
