Dancing With The Stars judge Arthur Gourounlian lifts lid on Kate Middleton's dance moves after 'gyrating' with her in London club

Dancing With The Stars judge Arthur Gourounlian has lifted the lid on Kate Middleton's dance moves after he revealed he once 'gyrated' with her in a club in London.

The Dancing with the Stars Ireland judge, 42, was speaking with Jennifer Zamparelli on RTE 2FM on Monday when she brought up his royal encounter on the dance floor in the early 2000s.

Arthur covered his face and blushed as he admitted the rather risqué moves he used after Kate 'grabbed' him to dance, unaware he was dancing with the future Princess of Wales.

Speaking on RTE 2FM, Arthur said: "Years ago when I was a dancer, I used to go partying a lot and there’s a place on the King’s Road, there’s a club, I don’t know if it’s still open.

“I was actually dancing and then there was this lady who was on the dance floor.

"She grabbed me and I was dancing, and then I was behind her… And I was gyrating with her," he giggled.

Radio host Jennifer asks: "Who was it?"

“It was Kate Middleton," Arthur admits. "Oh my god, I can’t believe it. She was on a break though [from William], remember when they had that break?"

Jennifer adds: "Forgive me if I'm wrong but I think we all know that she's not your type."

Arthur, who is married to Big Brother star Brian Dowling, replied: "No, definitely not my type. But I think because she loved the party, I think she was living in King's [Road] at the time"

And the Armenian-born dancer gave his verdict on how good a dancer he thought Kate Middleton was.

Jennifer questioned him on Kate's moves, asking: "Was she a good dancer?"

“She was okay," Arthur replies bluntly.

“She can move. You know when you go out... What was the year, 2000 and something?"
