Tilly Ramsay, 20, and her professional partner Nikita, 23, performed the Samba which once more left Gordon Ramsay weeping as his daughter suggested he was “embarrassed”. The Strictly Come Dancing pair danced a fiery Samba, which Nikita was worried his partner’s father would “not approve” of.
Tilly and Nikita performed their Samba to the song Levitating by Dua Lipa, earning themselves an overall score of 30.
Judges Craig Revel Horwood and Cynthia Erivo awarded the pair seven points each, while Anton Du Beke and Shirley Ballas awarded them more generous eights.
Speaking to presenter Claudia Winkleman after their performance, Nikita explained he wanted his partner to embody a more spicy persona ‘Chilli Tilly’ to sell the Samba.
Full of praise for the young TV chef, he said: “She brought out a bit of Chilli Tilly. A bit of that sass. And a lot of those hips and shoulders. You did so good!”
At this Claudia pointed out Tilly’s dad Gordon was once again emotional following the performance, as the camera panned to him wiping away tears in the audience.
She commented: “I have to say your dad was crying again in the audience.
“I mean you never imagined you’d be here in week 10!”
Tilly hastily suggested: “He’s embarrassed…”
However, Claudia insisted: “I don’t think he’s embarrassed. I think he’s openly weeping!”
Ahead of Saturday’s show Nikita made a comment about the pair’s “hot” Samba, voicing concerns Tilly’s father might not approve of him stripping down for the dance.
On the Strictly Instagram story he said: “Hey guys, I’m so excited for tonight’s show.
“We’re dancing the hot, hot, hot Samba, so tune in.

“You might see a few buttons undone – a few more than usual.
“Maybe Gordon will complain… Who knows?”
Tilly also took to Instagram after their performance was finished to share her thoughts on her story with her 1.2 million followers.
“Hey guys, we have just finished and we had so much fun doing that dance, didn’t we?” she asked, smiling at Nikita.
The pair went on to implore the public to vote for them to save them from the dreaded dance-off.
John Whaite and Johannes Radebe are currently at the top of the leaderboard with a near-perfect score of 39 points.
Meanwhile, Tilly and Nikita sit at the bottom with 30 points, closely behind Dan Walker and Nadiya Bychkova, who received 31.
