Andy and Sharon Price hit the news this week after photos emerged of them trying the famous Dirty Dancing lift and knocking each other unconscious

Nearly all of us have had a go at THAT lift from Dirty Dancing at one time or another.

Normally in a place where people can't see the sheer embarrassment when it inevitably fails.

But one couple from Weston-Super-Mare made headlines this week when they gave it a go in a pub garden - and knocked each other unconscious.

Andy and Sharon Price ended up in hospital earlier this week after trying to recreate the poignant dance move made famous by Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.

They appeared on This Morning earlier today to discuss the incident - and gave it another go!

Sharon explained that they'd wanted to give it a go after Andy's niece and nephew got the lift right on the first go of trying.

She said: "They're a lot slimmer than us, and he lifted her above his head, so we thought we'd give it a go."

Trying the move for the second time on live TV might not sound like the brightest idea, but thankfully Andy and Sharon had a bit of a helping hand this time.

Well, four helping hands.
