John Travolta made a surprise appearance on U.S. TV show Dancing with the Stars this week as Kirstie Alley's 'dance doctor'.

is currently competing in the hit talent show and after several embarrassing slip-ups, including losing a shoe mid-routine, she decided to call in an expert to help.

She told dance partner , "I took the liberty to call in a dance doctor" as her Look Who's Talking co-star arrived at her home to view rehearsals.

- who showed off his slick moves in 1977 disco movie Saturday Night Fever - was filmed watching the pair practise and he doled out a number of tips, asking Kirstie Alley to switch her high heels for sneakers and urging the pair to ramp up the "romantic tension".

And the actor's advice appeared to work - Kirstie Alley scored 23 out of a possible 30 for her foxtrot on Monday night's show and earned high praise from judge Carrie Ann Inaba, who called their routine "magical".
