Christine McGuinness has told how she ended up in hospital after husband Paddy tried to re-create the Dirty Dancing lift.

The couple were on holiday in Spain when they attempted their version of the move by Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey in the 1987 film in a pool.

Christine said: “He lifted me up and I sort of went over to go into the water and I cut my chin open at the bottom of the swimming pool.

“Then I had to go to the hospital and get stitches on the first day. After that I couldn’t go into the water or sunbathe.

“I just wanted to be in Dirty Dancing and I bloody cut my chin open.”

Christine recalls the incident in her new memoir A Beautiful Nightmare.
