She wrote: “This photo was taken after my sincere apologies to Dolly! She stepped into Aljaž and I doing our little lift at the end of the show.

“Her excitement to join in was high! She is completely okay and we cuddled and kissed and made up.”

The accident happened after husband and fellow dancer Aljaž Škorjanec spun Janette around the floor.

After a few seconds, Dolly got a bit too close and Janette kicked her right in the nose.

Viewers’ concern

Although it was over within a split second, viewers at home had already clocked the kick and they took to Twitter to ask if Dolly was alright.

Another wrote: “Ermmm I swear the dog on #MorningLive just held a boot to the face. Poor thing.”

Luckily though, Morning Live confirmed on their official Twitter account that all was OK with Dolly.

The tweet said: “Dolly was checked over by Dr James and was completely fine, she won’t be let off the lead for Strictly Fitness again though.”
