Strictly Come Dancing 2021 has kicked off but not without a hint of drama when Gordon Ramsay awkwardly scolded his daughter’s dance partner.
On Saturday night’s first episode, TV Chef Nikita Kuzmin, well-known for his insults and cursing, told Tilly about his Strictly pro partner Nikita Kuzmin.
The BBC One program aired yesterday and featured Tilly Ramsay (19), a fellow TV chef.
Tilly was paired alongside the 23-year old pro dancer, who has previously appeared on 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.
Tilly was left laughing at a comment made by the chef during a video conference with her father to introduce Nikita.

Tilly said: “Dad, meet Nikita!”
“Nice to meet you,” greeted Nikita.
Gordon then replied: “Congratulations and good luck to you both.”
Tilly thanked her father, but then Gordon quipped: “Nikita, can you do me a favour? Can you do your shirt up?”
The teen laughed as she put her hand to her head, saying: “Oh dad…”
ut the pro dancer swiftly began buttoning his shirt up.
Claudia Winkelman, who was talking to the pair in studio, cut the clip.
As the audience laughed, Nikita quickly changed his shirt.
Ramsay seems to be averse to the show’s fashion – but he will have to adjust to Tilly’s sparkling outfits and open shirts.
*Strictly Come Dancing continues next weekend, with the first live show on Saturday 25th September on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
