Strictly Come Dancing judge Shirley Ballas has revealed hopes to marry boyfriend Danny Taylor in 2021.

The 60 year old judge has clearly thought in some detail about her upcoming nuptials as she said she’d even have some Strictly stars in her bridal party.

Shirley and Danny, 48, fell in love this time last year as they met during rehearsals for pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk, which was performed in Liverpool.

A year on and Shirley, who previously opened up on why she got breast implants, hopes to take things to the next level with Danny and make a commitment to her man.

When quizzed on marriage by the Mail, she said: “Maybe next year is on the cards, possibly.

“Everything with Danny is romantic. When he did my 60th he thought about things I'd never think about, he's very creative, loving and caring.

“We're very 50/50 so women have equality like men so if I cook, he'll wash up, he'll vacuum and I'll clean, he's that type of person – he's definitely a keeper for sure.”

Shirley was also quizzed on if she would pop the question to her man as she said: “I don't know, we have mentioned it once or twice.”


Speaking of the wedding venue, Shirley revealed she’s happy for her man to make the decision but wasn't keen on one idea he had as she said: “I'll leave the decision up to Danny. I've been married twice, he hasn't at all, so whatever he feels comfortable with.

“At one point he mentioned maybe we could get married on the Liverpool football pitch at Anfield, but that doesn't quite ring my bell.”

She also has thought of who she wants for her bridal party as she added: “For my bridesmaids it would be my gaggle of gays, Alan and Nathan from America, I am already thinking about that – it wouldn't be straightforward, it would have a twist in it.

“Johannes, Gorka and Giovanni could be bridesmaids too. That could be fun.”

Shirley has been married twice before. She married her first husband Sammy Stopford when she was just 18 in 1980 before splitting four years later.

She then married her dance partner Corky, the father of her only child Mark, 34, in 1985. Shirley and Corky later divorced in 2007.

Shirley was also engaged to Nigel Tiffany when she was 16, but the pair never made it up the aisle, but they remain friends and he’s Shirley’s financial advisor.
