Brendan Cole told reporters that he recently stepped in to make a citizen's arrest after spotting an attempted theft on the London Tube.
The Strictly Come Dancing Star made a police statement this week after following and detaining a man at Baker Street underground station.
Cole spotted the man attempting to steal a woman's bag
on a busy staircase and his actions led to the arrest of the male at the scene.
The 36-year-old professional dancer said: "I was walking in a busy tube station and it felt like something wasn't quite right and sure enough I notice there was a guy who was trying to get into a handbag, under his rucksack."
He then turned around to make a fuss after checking the girl was alright.
After keeping the man occupied Cole managed to attract the attention of a policeman, who eventually charged the 41-year-old with attempted theft and possession of Class B drugs.
"There was no argy bargy or anything… I'm just really glad I saw it - some poor girl's day was about to be ruined," he added.
