Glee star Jayma Mays was so in awe of Tv comedy veteran Betty White when the two women first met she dropped to her knees to worship the former Golden Girls star.

The actress admits she completely embarrassed herself when she finally ran into White, who had been her Tv idol ever since she was a kid.

She says, "Golden Girls was like my favourite show, still is. I drink out of a Golden Girls mug every single morning.

"I met Betty White... I probably scared the poor woman... I remember seeing her and I kind of locked eyes on her... It was kind of an out of body experience.

"The next thing I remember I was kneeling at her feet. I was, like, worshipping an idol, but she was really gracious and she said really nice things, but she was probably like, 'Who is this weird woman kneeling before me?' She's wonderful."
