Bee Gees star Sir Barry Gibb has revealed he and his wife had an intimate encounter in Doctor Who’s TARDIS the night they met.

The 74-year-old Stayin’ Alive singer has been married to former Miss Edinburgh Linda Gray since 1970, after meeting during a recording of BBC’s Top Of The Pops.

Sir Barry told The Sun: “She was the hostess for one week, the week Massachusetts was No1. And she’d never heard of it.

“We just saw each other across the room and something happened.

“And, um, we had a bit of a cuddle in Doctor Who’s TARDIS, surrounded by Daleks!”

The TARDIS - which stands for Time And Relative Dimension In Space - is the time travelling vehicle used by The Doctor in the long-running BBC sci-fi series - which resembles an old fashioned Police Box.

Sir Barry and Gray, 70, have five children together and seven grandchildren and last year celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.
