Helen Skelton's boobs caused her problems on the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas special.

The Blue Peter presenter will be amongst an all star line up on Christmas Day's Strictly 2012 special.

But the 29-year-old admitted she had to ask bosses to change her outfit after some malfunctions in rehearsals.

The blonde beauty told the Daily Star Sunday: “I had to ask for more clothes – they were about to send me out in just a bra. With my double-D cups that was never going to happen. I told them I can’t do a cartwheel in a bra.”

A production insider told the newspaper: “Helen is a lovely girl with a fantastic figure but there would have been every chance in the original outfit that her boobs would have leapt out at any second.

“There’s no way they would have stayed in.”

Meanwhile, Helen - partnered with Artem Chigvintsev for the one-off special, said: “I felt the pressure on this show – I think everyone expected me to win.

“I knew some of the cameramen from Blue Peter and they’d all had a bet on me to win but I was much more nervous than I thought I’d be.”

The Strictly Come Dancing 2012 Christmas special is on Christmas Day, BBC1 at 6.15pm
