Jennifer Lopez kneed David Gandy in the crotch

Jennifer Lopez accidentally kneed David Gandy in the "crown jewels".

The 34-year-old model - who Jennifer recently admitted was her celebrity crush - thinks the 'On The Floor' hitmaker just fancied him out of pity following the embarrassing mishap on the set of her music video for 'First Love'.

He told 'Entertainment Tonight': "She caught me with her knee in my crown jewels and still to this day, I think she just said she had a crush on me because she feels bad."

David also opened up about the experience of shooting the music video on a seemingly idyllic remote island.

He said: "The conditions were absolutely awful, we had sandstorms in the middle of the desert and it was freezing cold but me and Jen had a blast doing it.

"It looked a whole lot more romantic than it was."

The model found instant fame after fronting a high-profile campaign for iconic fashion label Dolce and Gabbana and can't believe he's now the top male model in the industry.

He said: "It was a 50-foot poster on Times Square, so that's why it really took off.

"Suddenly every paper was ringing up wanting interviews and people sort of knowing who I was, so it was quick. "

David himself is a fan of the old-school American style and he revealed that he takes inspiration from people like Paul Newman, Steve McQueen, James Dean and Cary Grant.
