‘Exactly what fatherhood should be’: Strictly fans admire Gordon Ramsay for ‘crying with pride’ watching daughter Tilly dance the Samba


He has been there every step of the way during his daughter’s Strictly Come Dancing journey.

And Gordon Ramsay couldn’t hold back the tears on Saturday night as YouTuber Tilly danced the Samba to Dua Lipa‘s Levitating with professional partner Nikita Kuzmin.

This was not the first instance the high profile chef, 55, has welled up watching his 20-year-old daughter take to the Strictly dancefloor, but her latest performance had a lot at stake: next week’s quarter-final.

Tilly and Nikita earned a score of 30 for their routine, with head judge Shirley Ballas remarking: ‘I think it needed tidying up a bit. Otherwise, a really good go at a very difficult dance.’

Fans of the dance competition admired the restaurateur for displaying his emotions and one described the moment as ‘exactly what fatherhood should be.’

A second admitted Gordon’s tearing up ‘gets me right in the feels’, while a third said it was ‘so sweet’ that the proud dad ‘always gets emotional.’

In October, Gordon was moved to tears again after his youngest daughter took on the Charleston and danced to Yes Sir! That’s My Baby by Firehouse Five Plus Two.

Spotting Gordon crying, host Tess Daly pointed out: ‘Oh darling, everyone’s on their feet, that was so much fun! Your dad Gordon shed a tear, he’s so proud of you!’ 

Last week, Tilly and Nikita topped the leaderboard with a perfect score of 40 points following their Couple’s Choice dance to Revolting Children from Matilda.

They left the judges and audience on their feet following their perfectly executed and energetic performance, which comes after the pair previously landed in the dance-off two weeks in a row.

The stellar display also comes after rumours began to swirl that BBC bosses were ‘pushing’ for Tilly to make the final.    

Getting into character as mischievous school children, Tilly and Nikita appeared determined not to land in the dreaded bottom two as they pulled off a specular routine full of flicks and tricks.

And their hard work certainly paid off as the judges awarded them top scores, with Shirley remarking she struggled to tell who the professional was. 

She told them: ‘That’s how good you was. No disrespect to you [Nikita] but she kept up with you every step of the way.’
