Strictly Come Dancing presenter Claudia Winkleman was left panicking after Bill Bailey and Oti Mabuse fell over near her feet.

The presenter leaped back into a couple of Glitterballs to ensure that she was two metres away from them.

Bill and Oti had danced a Couple's Choice dance to The Sugarhill Gang’s Rapper’s Delight and received glowing reviews from the judges.

So when they returned to speak to Claudia backstage, the pair jokingly collapsed on the floor.

Only, Claudia was clearly worried about the show's strict coronavirus guidelines – particularly after Nicola and Katya's sudden exit from the programme.

Shuffling back, Claudia said: "Hang on, just getting back two metres. Never mind me!"

Crashing into the golden Glitterballs, she joked: "No problem, this is absolutely fine! Casual!"

Bill and Oti jumped back up and sheepishly looked at one another, realising that they probably shouldn't have done that.

But fans found it hilarious, with one joking: "So much chaos tonight omggggg."

While another tweeted: "UNCLEAN UNCLEAN."
