Susanna Reid appeared to make a joke about her recent 'flirty' interview with Alex Turner during BBC Breakfast this morning.

The Strictly Come Dancing contestant made headlines last week when some viewers suggested she was being flirtatious with Arctic Monkeys star Alex during a Breakfast chat.

It all seemed to stem from the fact Susanna (playing on the band's hit song) suggested that viewers thought Alex would look good on the Strictly dancefloor.

This morning, ahead of an interview with Manic Street Preachers, Susanna joked: "I don't talk about Strictly with pop stars anymore!"

Susanna is teamed with Kevin Clifton for the new series of the BBC dance show, which will kick off performances later this month.

She said recently: "I wouldn't rate myself as a dancer. I have danced and I enjoy dancing, but I'll leave it to the judges to decide. Dancing gives you a thrill and a shot of adrenalin. I love it, but am I am good at it? I'll leave that for others to decide."
