Maisie Smith was left in hysterics when she fell over after pro partner Gorka Marquez attempted to throw her over his shoulders in a dramatic lift, while Jacqui Smith accidentally hit Anton Du Beke in the groin.

In the hilarious look behind-the-scenes, HRVY was also seen toppling over when they were recording a video in front of a sparkling backdrop that dropped to the floor to reveal the green screen behind them.

Meanwhile, practising a dance Ranvir Singh fell into her pro partner Giovanni Pernice as she tried to twirl into his arms for one of their dances.

During a break from their rehearsals, Clara Amfo collapsed onto a sofa while she was sat beside Aljaž Škorjanec who looked to the camera with a confused expression.

Caroline Quinten and Johannes Radebe also shared an amusing moment when they were making a fun video where she pretended his legs were hers while sat atop him.

Getting confused, Caroline almost fell over as she laughed and claimed: ‘I suddenly thought you were my knees and I lent on them and I couldn’t feel them!’

Showing how tiring the programme can get, Caroline was seen falling asleep on Johannes, while HRVY crawled across the floor in exhaustion.

Jason Bell was also seen practising with Luba Mushtuk, however the professional dancer got stuck as he lifted her onto his shoulders and couldn’t get down.
