Healey had a mishap with her dress during her Halloween-themed dance on the BBC One show and believed that she had exposed her breasts to the ten million viewers.

Despite being comforted by her pro partner Pasha Kovalev and host Bruce Forysth, Healey couldn't hold back the tears when she faced the judges' comments.

Alesha Dixon told Healey: "You have nothing to cry about, my darling. It did not distract from the dance."

Meanwhile, Tess Daly added: "Can I just reassure you, we saw absolutely nothing."

However, Healey did lose marks and slip down the judges' scoreboard as she spent the last part of her dance ensuring that her dress was held up. Healey and Kovalev fell to 32 points, a drop from last week's scoreboard-topping 36.

Writing on Twitter last night, she added: "Mortified I got upset on Strictly! Just upset that I let Pasha Kovalev down! He's worked so hard and I messed up!"
