The TV judge was giving a critique to last year’s Strictly winners Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice after their tango when he made the slip.

Praising the dance partners for their ‘passion’, Bruno put his hands around Shirley, 61, to demonstrate a move but accidentally grabbed her breast.

Realising his mistake, he said: ‘Oh sorry my love, I apologise.’

Shirley burst out laughing at the mishap as fellow judge Craig Revel Horwood jokingly put his face in his hands.

As the laughs died down, host Janette Manrara said: ‘Are you OK, Shirley? OK, Bruno carry on with the dancing.’

Bruno carried on with his praise, saying: ‘It was all exquisite, and the shape. What was so special, she gives meaning, intention, purpose to everything. You acted the dance, you acted it beautifully.’

Bruno missed out on judging last year’s Strictly as he chose to remain in America and judge Dancing With The Stars amid the coronavirus pandemic.

To which Shirley responded: ‘You know, romancing and dancing; things you know…I don’t really know what’s going on to be honest.

‘It’s not my place to say who’s what, where and when. There’s always rumours you know that Lorraine.’
