Gordon Ramsay sheds ‘tears of joy', with proud dad praising daughter Tilly as she exits Strictly Come Dancing

Loading Tweet, Loading Instagram Post

Gordon Ramsay has lost it – but not at a clueless chef or hostile hotel owner.

Nope, the celebrity chef notorious for serving up the profanity has shown a softer side after he was brought to tears as his daughter was eliminated from UK reality competition, Strictly Come Dancing.

Tilly, 20, and dance partner Nikita Kuzmin were the ninth couple sent packing after after they left the judges flat with their samba performance.


During her exit speech, where she thanked staff on the program, the camera panned to her dad in the audience.

Sweetly, a proud Ramsay was pictured trying to contain the waterworks.

“Well done Tills,” he tweeted after the episode.

“And yes, it’s tears of joy.”

The British chef, restaurateur and TV personality who once famously scolded a TV contestant into labelling themselves an “idiot sandwich” also took to Instagram where he gushed over his daughter.

“Words can’t describe how proud I am of these two,” he said of Tilly and dance partner Kuzmin.

“Hard working, polite humble and incredibly down to earth.

“Most of all, well done and what a celebration of youth and how happy it makes me feel.

“The future is bright and you two will continue to shine.

“Lots of love, dad.”

His show of emotion was praised online, with people loving a different side to the star man in the kitchen.

“Gordon Ramsay tearing up on Strictly each week gets me right in the feels every time,” one person wrote.

“He’s so proud of Tilly and not afraid to show it.”

Another said: “Seeing Gordon Ramsay cry breaks me.”

Ramsay recently backed his daughter’s classy response to a body shamer who called her a “chubby little thing”.

Speaking after a UK radio host made the disparaging sledge, the celebrity chef said he was “very proud”.

“It made me feel very proud that she stood up and said, ‘I’m not taking this’,” he said of his daughter, who also recently starred on Ten’s Celebrity MasterChef in Australia..

“She is 19-years of age for goodness sake — busting her a… off and attending university by Zoom and learning the most extraordinary moves with Nikita.”
