Doctor gets a pinch from Amy Pond

Karen Gillan was emotional filming her last scenes for Doctor Who

Matt Smith has told how Karen Gillan pinched the Doctor's bottom as they filmed her final scenes in sci-fi show Doctor Who.

The actress' character Amy Pond is being written out in a "heartbreaking" storyline.

Arthur Darvill, who plays Amy's screen husband Rory, was quoted as saying in The Sun: "The last scene we shot was inside the Tardis with all three of us.

"We were then in darkness and we had a big group hug."

Matt added: "We had a hug and Karen fondled me. I called her Fondling Bottom Gillan."

Arthur, who is also leaving the BBC One show, joked: "All those feelings kept inside for so long just suddenly came out."

Speaking at the Comic-Con convention in San Diego, California, Karen added: "I was in bits. I didn't want to go. There were tears, a lot of tears. But it is the best exit ever."

Former Emmerdale actress Jenna-Louise Coleman was unveiled as the Doctor's new assistant earlier this year.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
