MORNING Live fans were horrified after Gethin Jones' dog got "kicked in the face" live on air.
The mishap occurred when Strictly Come Dancing star and It Takes Two host Janette Manrara was swung around the studio by her co-star and husband, Aljaz Skorjanec.
The duo were mid-twirl when Janette's foot accidentally caught the face of inquisitive labrador, Dolly, who had stepped dangerously towards them during their routine.
Her shoe could be seen accidentally grazing its head as it stepped back in shock.
Fans at home were quick to take to Twitter to show their concern, with one wailing: "I hope that dog's ok! Just got smacked in the face by a dancer 🙁 #MorningLive."
Another wrote: "Oh crikey poor dog just got booted in the head #morninglive"

One then questioned: "Please tell me the dog is okay? #MorningLive #whack" as another commented: "Someone please tell me they can video the dancers kicking that dog in the face by accident on #MorningLive #BBC."
A BBC viewer then wrote: "The dog on #MorningLive just got a wrestling style superkick #oops" as one surmised: "Ermmm I swear the dog on #MorningLive just held a boot to the face. Poor thing."
Many fans directed their worries to show host Gethin Jones, as Dolly is in fact his dogs.
He brought his pet, along with other dog Ollie, into the studio for a day at work.
