DOCTOR ADMITS HE STRUNG OUT CHRISTMAS EMBRACE


DOCTOR WHO star David Tennant has confessed he dragged out the kissing scene with Kylie Minogue in the show's Christmas special.

The Time Lord embraces Astrid Peth, played by the 39-year-old pop diva, after she helps him beat off an alien angel attack on board doomed spaceship The Titanic.

Tennant, 36, admitted he milked the opportunity to lock lips with the singer while filming Doctor Who: The Voyage of the Damned to be aired on Christmas Day.

Speaking at the show's premiere last night, he said: "I just kept going until the director told me to stop. lam the ultimate professional. On that day I don't know what happened but I kept messing up."

And the actor, who replaced Christopher Eccleston as the tenth doctor in 2005, denied rumours he will quit.

Comedienne Catherine Tate, 39, who plays his new assistant, threw Tennant's future into question after she told Jonathan Ross the next series would be his last. Tennant said: "Catherine Tate stitched me up good and proper. She goes on Jonathan Ross and makes up a load of nonsense. She said I was leaving, which is a decision I haven't made yet.

"I'm doing four more specials and beyond that no one's asked me to make any decisions."
