Jeremy Vine's awkward encounter with Strictly star

Jeremy Vine accidentally touched Kirsty Gallacher's breast during 'Strictly Come Dancing' rehearsals.

The Radio 2 host was embarrassed after the incident which occurred during rehearsals for the group dance for the new series of the BBC show.

Writing in the Radio Times, he explained: "At one point my left hand flew out and landed on Kirsty Gallacher's right breast. She gasped and I apologised."

And Jeremy also revealed his own fears that he is the weakest dancer and "buffoon" of the group.

He wrote: " You can't help but size each other up. It's a contest, after all. You look for a suspiciously toned bottom or an overly graceful movement by the tea urn. But as I gazed around, the thing that worried me was: there was no buffoon. No idiot. Nobody who couldn't dance.

"As I stood in that mirrored ballroom, surrounded by grace and beauty, I remembered the rule for online poker. You play with three other people from all over the world who join your table. One of them is going to lose all their money. And Jeremy, if you can't see who the buffoon is - it's you."
