Former actress Fiona Fullerton has laughed off reports she is having an affair with dancer Anton Du Beke, branding the rumour "hilarious".

The Bond girl, who retired from the movies following death threats from a stalker in 1995, is making a small screen comeback competing in U.K. Tv show Strictly Come Dancing.

Last month (Sep13) she was photographed by a paparazzo enjoying lunch with Du Beke, her partner on the show, sparking a rumour she was cheating on her husband Neil Shackell, but Fullerton is adamant she found the speculation amusing.

She tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "Yes of course we are having a torrid affair. Neil and I thought it was hilarious. I haven't been papped in 19 years and I cannot tell you how funny it is. What the paper didn't point out was that the production assistant and the director were there too. Ironically, that was an aspect of the business I hated when I was an actress and one of the reasons I stepped away."
