John Travolta made a surprise appearance on TV show Dancing With The Stars this week as Kirstie Alley’s “dance doctor”.
The actress is currently competing in the hit talent show and after several embarrassing slip-ups, including losing a shoe mid-routine, she decided to call in an expert to help.

She told dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, “I took the liberty to call in a dance doctor” as her Look Who’s Talking co-star arrived at her home to view rehearsals.

Travolta – who showed off his slick moves in 1977 disco movie Saturday Night Fever – was filmed watching the pair practise and he doled out a number of tips, asking Alley to switch her high heels for sneakers and urging the pair to ramp up the “romantic tension”.

And the actor’s advice appeared to work – Alley scored 23 out of a possible 30 for her foxtrot on Monday night’s show and earned high praise from judge Carrie Ann Inaba, who called their routine “magical”.
