Strictly wardrobe malfunction

Strictly Come Dancing’s Ali Bastian has revealed that a wardrobe malfunction meant she saw dance partner Brian Fortuna’s bum!

‘Brian split his pants!’ Ali, 26, exclusively reveals to Now.

‘He was bending down to pick up a plaster that had fallen off my foot and they just ripped! I made sure I averted my eyes, of course!’

Brian, 27, isn’t the first man on Strictly Come Dancing to flash his toned derriere – Rav Wilding and Ricky Whittle both split their pants during training.

Rumours have been rife that Brian and Ali have been enjoying a Strictly romance since Brian admitted that he’d been asking the former star of Hollyoaks and The Bill for a date for weeks.

However, unlike their Strictly co-stars Kristina Rihanoff and Joe Calzaghe, Ali insists they are just good friends.

Worth £2k, the stunning dress could be yours, all you have to do is get the next issue of Woman magazine – out on Tuesday 6 October – and enter the competition! Good luck!
