Dancing With The Stars host Tyra Banks has opened up about a mishap which happened live on air in the early weeks on the show.
The America’s Next Top Model creator has powered through a whole heap of slip-ups in the first half of her time anchoring the dancing competition.
But the TV personality admitted that there have been a few mishaps that viewers didn’t pick up during her rocky DWTS journey.
Fans will have noticed that the model has been all about the fab looks each week, but changing into all those outfits has nearly gone terribly wrong.
She told Entertainment Tonight, Tyra admitted: ‘I think it was the third or fourth episode, I walk out and my hand is on my back and I was holding my dress together. It was not zipped up!
‘And I did not have on any of my jewelry. Then, you’ll notice, a couple of acts later my hand is down, I’m zipped up and I have on jewelry.’
Tyra, 46, has slowly been getting in her stride after she replaced long time frontman Tom Bergeron and his co-host Erin Andrews.
Indeed, the star has been candid about the fact she’s learning as she goes in the new role.
Taking to TikTok last month, the model opened up about making mistakes on air and explained how she planned to keep improving.
She explained: ‘Tonight I hosted the second episode Dancing with the Stars… and yeah, it wasn’t perfect. Yeah, I had a lot of fun but I messed up, I said the wrong words, but I kept, kept going.’
As a parallel to her own error, the star pointed out how contestant Skai Jackson made a fairly big misstep during her samba with pro partner Alan Bersten.
The young contestant almost fell during the number but she didn’t let it dampen her spirits, and Tyra has done the same.
Speaking from her dressing room, Tyra continued: ‘She got back up and she kept going, and because of that she’s here for another week. So the message is: I messed up this week, Skai messed up this week, but we’re gonna keep on going and going. Forgive yourself when you mess up and keep going.’
