Strictly Come Dancing's Jeremy Vine has told how he was left blushing after accidentally touching Kirsty Gallacher's breast during rehearsals.

The Radio 2 DJ is the new Strictly diarist for the Radio Times and in his first column for the magazine recalled his awkward encounter with the TV presenter while rehearsing the first group dance.

Vine revealed: "At one point my left hand flew out and landed on Kirsty Gallacher's right breast, like that moment with the Australian woman in Fawlty Towers. She gasped and I apologised. We've put it behind us."

Meanwhile, former Strictly stars are to discuss Life After Strictly at the Radio Times Festival this weekend.
