Gordon Ramsay cries on Strictly Come Dancing during daughter’s performance

Gordon Ramsay was reduced to tears on live TV tonight as his 19-year-old daughter Tilly danced the Charleston on Strictly Come Dancing.

The Scots TV chef and his wife Tana watched on proudly as their youngest daughter danced her heart out with her partner Nikita Kuzmin to Yes Sir! That’s My Baby by Firehouse Five Plus Two.

As the lights came up, the camera shot over to Gordon who was seen wiping tears away from his eyes.

And Strictly host Tess Daly couldn’t help but notice the proud father crying.

She said: “Oh darling, everyone’s on their feet, that was so much fun! Your dad Gordon shed a tear, he’s so proud of you!”

The judges comments were more than positive with Craig Revel Horwood admitting that he was “nervous” because Gordon was in the audience.

Craig said: “I really and truly loved that, the energy was fantastic, I think you’re fantastic! Brilliant!”

Motsi Mabuse added: “Well done!”

And head judge Shirley Ballas described her as a “powerhouse” and congratulated Tilly as she said she was “not expecting that”.

After she got her breath back, Tilly said she’s had a great time. She told Claudia: “It’s been the best week and I never thought I would be able to have done that a couple of weeks ago.
