Karina Smirnoff has become the latest star to fall over on 'Dancing With The Stars'.

The professional ballroom dancer and partner Ralph Macchio - who became the second couple to take a tumble this season after 'Cheers' actress Kirstie Alley and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy - hit the floor when she tripped over him during their paso doble performance to 'Everybody Dance' by C + C Music Factory.

But the pair still managed 24 points, just one behind 'The Girls Next Door' star Kendra Wilkinson, with professional wrestler Chris Jericho in last place.

Karina and 'Karate Kid' actor Ralph were praised by the judges for their quick recovery following their fall.

Judge Bruno Tonioli said: "Once you got back on it, there was no stopping you," and fellow adjudicator Len Goodman added: "I'm proud of you, and you should be proud of yourself."

Karina joined the ABC show in the third series, but she is yet to be crowned 'Dancing with the Stars' champion.

Her best result came as runner-up alongside 'Saved By The Bell' actor Mario Lopez.
