Erin Andrews star struck on Dancing with the Stars

Erin Andrews was left starstruck by the NFL players on 'Dancing with the Stars'.

While the 37-year-old co-host of the show has been a reporter on Fox's 'NFL Sunday' for four years, she wasn't prepared for the level of excitement she felt while coming face-to-face with Pittsburgh Steelers player Antonio Brown, Denver Broncos' defensive star Von Miller, and their teammates.

Writing a blog for PeopleStyle about the premiere of the latest series, she penned: "Tonight in the ballroom felt more like home than normal. Our studio was filled with NFL players!

"I'm thrilled we have Antonio Brown and Von Miller on our show this season,

"And I'm even more excited because all their teammates are joining us each week to cheer them on. I was star struck seeing all the players in the ballroom. It made me very excited for football to start back up."

The football players appearance on the dance floor wasn't the only steamy situation for Erin as a malfunctioning air conditioner left the TV presenter "sweating" on the night.

She added: "The producers wanted an all-black formal look.

"It always gets a little warm in my dressing room: We have curling irons, hair dryers, clothing steamers, etc. all turned on,

"Unfortunately, today, my air conditioning wasn't working an hour before the show. My team was trying to get me prepped and in a dress while I was sweating my hair and makeup right off."

Actresses Mischa Barton and Kim Fields, and original member Boyz II Men member Wanya Morris are among the other stars competing in the 22nd series.
