Take Me Out host Paddy McGuinness has been caught on CCTV berating a nail bar worker he accuses of sexually harassing his wife, Christine Martin.

In the footage published by The Sun, the 41-year-old presenter is seen storming into the American Nail Studio in Wilmslow, Cheshire, and approaching a male technician who allegedly made a sexual remark to Christine when she visited the salon the day before.

The clip shows the star walking over to the man and placing a hand on his shoulder before seemingly yelling in his face and moving away. He is then seen stood yelling at the man while angrily pointing in his direction for a further 30 seconds as five other customers look on.

However, the salon owner claims that all was well when the 26-year-old former Miss Liverpool visited the shop for a pedicure. Ronald Giron, 44, who described the presenter's rant as "threatening and inappropriate", said it was a simple misunderstanding that was blown out of proportion.

He said: "I couldn't believe it when he just came into the shop shouting and throwing his weight around.

"He shouted something like "I will deck you in" and said "That b****** tried it on with my wife. He told my missus she gave him a hard-on".

"My employee didn't say that though. It was all a misunderstanding because he doesn't speak very good English. I think she probably misheard, went home and told Paddy and it drove him mad."

McGuinness met his partner at the Liverpool International Tennis Tournament in 2008, where she was modelling. After three years of dating they married in 2011 in a lavish ceremony at Thornton Manor in Cheshire. In 2013 they welcomed twins, Leo and Penelope.

A spokesman for McGuinness said he had gone to the salon to remonstrate with the individual, saying he had reacted "strongly, as any husband would" and added that he would not be apologising because he strongly denied any wrongdoing. Both parties are said to be seeking legal advice.

IBTimes UK has contacted a representative for McGuiness and is awaiting comment.
