She declared herself ‘happy to be here,’ but Kirstie Alley was so excited at being on the first Dancing with the Stars all-star season, she ended up kissing the program’s host on Monday night.

After an energetic foxtrot with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, the 61-year-old actress decided to plant a long kiss on Tom Bergeron following his Emmy win.

‘That’s for your Emmy,’ she told Tom, who looked rather speechless at the gesture, although soon recovered to pretend to smoke a cigarette.

Earlier, she had spoken about her joy at being reunited with Maksim, her partner for season 12 of the hit show and the pair ended up sharing a kiss at the end of their foxtrot.

‘I’m ecstatic to have Maks as my partner,’ she said. ‘Maks and I have developed a great friendship. I know I’m a better dancer than I was the first time. How much better? We’ll find out.’

But her foxtrot got mixed reviews from the judges, with Len Goodman telling her: ‘Your dance needed refining.’

Judge Carrie Ann Inaba was more positive about the former Cheers star: ‘You have the most beautiful, sensual quality when you dance,’ she said. ‘You tell the story with your whole body.’

Kirstie vowed to improve after getting a score of 19 from the judges, saying: ‘You have to be crazy to come back. ‘I’m so happy to be here. I never thought I’d get to do this again.’
