Amanda Holden opened up about the 'weird intimate moment' she experienced with Strictly Come Dancing's Pasha Kovalev.
The series sees the Britain's Got Talent judge team up with Dan Jones as the pair attempt to 'shed light on history’s best sex stories'.
"Along the way, Amanda and Dan will be meeting experts in the history of sex, including sex historian Dr. Kate Lister, author of ‘A Curious History of Sex’, international teacher of Dominance studies Anne O Nomis, author of 'The History & Arts of the Dominatrix' and the late executive chair of Ann Summers, Jacqueline Gold CBE, in her very last television interview," the synopsis reads.
In the show, Amanda practises 'The Volta', a dance that was supposedly controversial during the Renaissance period, with her calling it the '16th-century answer to twerking'.
When practicing with professional dancer and Strictly star Pasha, the 52-year-old revealed the intimacy she experienced with him while learning the dance.
"You weren’t even allowed to hold hands and then being allowed to be that intimate, it was weird having that moment with Pasha," she admitted.
"I felt the feeling just in that afternoon, so I can’t imagine how people felt touching like that centuries ago. But Pasha, he was so patient.
"It really took me ages to learn that step, hop and kick."
This comes after Amanda called it 'absolutely ridiculous' when people judge her on her outfit choices, having sparked Ofcom complaints in the past.
"It's like the problem is everyone talking about my t*ts, while these two [Simon and Bruno] all the time… [Simon's] shirt's always undone and [Bruno's] stripping off," she told The Sun in April.
"No Ofcom complaints about me this year, please."
"The Victorians, I think, were to blame – in their eyes, everything became more sexualised than it was meant to be.
"It’s crazy that when you think of the hoo-ha around some of my outfits now, we’re still there. It’s absolutely ridiculous that it’s still going on in an era when we really think that we are ahead of the game."
Sex: A Bonkers History is set to air on Sky History on 18 September at 9pm.
