Gordon Ramsay, a proud father, sheds a tear for Tilly’s Strictly performance.
As he watched his daughter Tilly amaze the Strictly Come Dancing judges, Gordon Ramsay was moved to tears.
When the 19-year-old danced the Charleston with her professional partner, Nikita Kuzmin, he and his wife Tana were in the BBC audience. Gordon, 54, is notorious for his venomous four-letter outbursts. But as the TV lights came on, he showed a softer side.
Tess Daly was the first to notice. “Oh sweetheart, everyone’s on their feet, that was so much fun!” she exclaimed to a gasping Tilly. Gordon, your father, dropped a tear because he’s so proud of you!” Strictly fans reacted to the pleased father’s reaction on social media.
“Strictly what, Gordon Ramsay crying, getting soft in his old age…” one person wrote. “Aww, how great to see your sympathetic side, Papa G,” commented another. After the two were sighted at Nikita’s flat, TikTok star Tilly is claimed to have become “extremely close” to her. The two may have been cursed by the “Strictly curse,” according to rumors.
Nikita, 23, has Nicola Wirt as a girlfriend, while Tilly has been seeing Seth Mack since 2019.
