Strictly turns awkward as Gordon Ramsay tells off daughter Tilly’s dance partner

Strictly Come Dancing 2021 has kicked off but not without a hint of drama when Gordon Ramsay awkwardly scolded his daughter's dance partner.

The TV Chef, known for throwing insults, cursing, and being unapologetically truthful told off Tilly's Strictly pro partner Nikita Kuzmin on the first episode on Saturday night.

Fellow TV chef Tilly Ramsay, 19, is a contestant on the BBC One show which aired yesterday.

Tilly was paired with the new pro dancer, 23, who previously appeared on the German television series Let's Dance.

When the Ukrainian dancer joined the show, he said: "I've always been amazed by the magic Strictly Come Dancing brings and that no matter what country I have found myself living in, I've never missed a chance to watch it."

He added: “Joining it as a professional dancer is my big chance to make some magic on the most famous dance floor. I can't wait to give it my all.”

However, while Tilly was over the moon with her pairing, dad Gordon had something else on his mind regarding the professional dancer.

During a video call with her dad to introduce Nikita to him, Tilly was left giggling at a comment from the chef.

ut the pro dancer swiftly began buttoning his shirt up.

As the clip came to an end, the show cut to Claudia Winkelman who was chatting to the pair in the studio.

And fans saw Nikita quickly doing up his shirt again as the audience laughed.

Ramsay doesn't seem a fan of the fashion in the show – but he'll have to get used to the sparkling outfits and open shirts while Tilly is dancing week-to-week.
