This Monday Nancy Grace will take to the stage with Irish dancer Tristan MacManus and she has admitted that she is terrified she'll fall.

Speaking to RadarOnline Grace admitted "One thing I don’t want to happen is for me to end up horizontal!"

Grace and her partner certainly seem to have chemistry. MacManus also proved that he can cope with the acid-tongued TV host as she mocked his pasty Irish skin.
