Strictly Come Dancing star Clara Amfo suffered a ‘wardrobe malfunction’ during tonight’s live show after she almost tripped on her dress.

The Radio 1 presenter danced the Viennese Waltz with her partner Aljaž Škorjanec.

However, mid-way through the routine, Clara ran into a bit of trouble with her beautiful gown.

But like a true pro, the 36-year-old carried on like nothing had happened.

Speaking to Clara afterwards, host Tess Dale asked: ‘You did so well to carry on with your wardrobe malfunction then, I noticed your dress got caught in your shoe didn’t it?’

To which the Radio 1 DJ replied: ‘It did but we pushed on through!’

Viewers praised Clara for carrying on with the routine despite the mishap, taking to Twitter one commented: ‘

Another tweeted: ‘Think Clara did very well, she carried on after her foot got caught.’

While one added: ‘I couldn’t watch this properly as I was freaking that they were going to stumble over the costume malfunction.’

‘I loved this and what a well handled wardrobe malfunction,’ another said.

Fans feared that the dancing competition would be cancelled after viewers anxiously waited for Boris Johnson’s latest coronavirus announcement.

However, the BBC series went ahead as usual, just a few minutes later than planned.

The delayed start also meant that the professional dancer’s Halloween routine was cut from the beginning of the show.

Strictly Come Dancing airs on Saturday at 7.10pm on BBC One.
