Shirley Ballas got very frisky with her younger boyfriend live on today’s Loose Women.
The Strictly Come Dancing head judge, 59, was interviewed on TV with new man Daniel Taylor for the very first time.
After discussing all things Strictly, Danny, 46, came out in flamboyant fashion ahead of a grilling from the Loose ladies.
Daniel came out with a red rose in his mouth – and Shirley was so excited she jumped out of her chair.
After falling into his arms, the loved-up pair danced around before locking lips to exchange the rose.
Panellist Jane Moore pointed out that Shirley could not stop giggling.
Daniel confessed: “She’s the kind of girl you look at twice. The first time you don’t believe it.”
Explaining how they met, Shirley said: “We met on panto as friends. It didn’t really take off until March… for him. I fell in love way before… I think for me it was first sight.
“He was going through a difficult time in his relationship. We did become friends and then probably in about February I said, ‘I love you Danny’ and he said, ‘I know’. It took a while.”
Daniel revealed he was going through a break-up when they first met – and Shirley offered to “keep an eye” on him.
Things got a bit awkward when the Loose ladies starting asking when they were going to get married.
“Ask me Danny, ask me,” joked Shirley as her red-faced boyfriend played down the idea.
He said: “It’s early days. I want to enjoy this.”
Shirley also spoke about Sunday night’s controversial result – with Dev Griffin and Dianne Buswell becoming the third couple to be sent home.
The head judge confessed it was difficult to send anyone home from the competition.
But she claimed the public were responsible and should have voted in stronger numbers if they wanted to save them.
Shirley added: “People have got to get out there and vote. we do our job. As you can see there were many people saved with lot lower scores.”
“It’s just so important…I respect everybody at home who’s been watching fifteen series. Everyone has a favourite. We do our job to the best we can.
“We have to do it right there in that split second on the one minute 20 seconds. We have to make a decision.
“The three judges were unanimous. It wasn’t down to me. It was unanimous and I agreed.”
