Alesha Dixon says she needs protection from fellow Strictly Come Dancing judge Bruno Tonioli's manic hands - because she fears he may cause a wardrobe malfunction.

The 32-year-old said the Italian - known for his expressive gestures - almost caused her breast to pop out during a live edition of the TV dance contest last year.

Alesha said: "With Bruno, this year I'm debating whether to take a helmet and a shield.

"Because last year I think a boob nearly fell out - he pulled me a few times, he nearly pulled my hair out. There were a few times I was like, 'this guy!'."

The singer turned dance judge - who won Strictly as a contestant in 2007 - added: "He's brilliant, I wouldn't change him for the world. I think that's what makes Bruno who he is.

"He's extrovert and flamboyant and we love him for it."

Alesha is also busy hosting a new talent show which will give a break to promising dance crews. Alesha's Street Dance Stars begins on August 22 on CBBC and will go out each weekday at 9am and 5pm.
