Tilly Ramsay is currently lighting up screens as she shows off her moves on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

The 19 year old daughter of TV chef Gordon Ramsay is paired with brand new professional dancer Nikita Kuzmin in the series and on Saturday night, the pair's energetic Charleston saw them top the leaderboard.

And despite the fact Nikita is in a relationship, the duo have found themselves being mentioned in relation to the infamous Strictly curse.

Speaking to new!, Tilly – who has never had professional dance training – has now opened up about her relationship status.

She told us: “Yes, I am single but I’m here to focus on dancing.

“I’d have been crazy to say no to Strictly Come Dancing. It really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and most importantly I really want to learn to dance.”

Nikita, 23, who is originally from the Ukraine but grew up in Italy.

It’s been speculated that the two have grown close after Nikita's girlfriend Nicole Wirt, who he has been with for five years, posted a cryptic message on Instagram.

The star shared a photo of her legs and feet as she sat in a hairdressers. Over this, she told her followers: "Practice gratitude daily and see your view over your life shift for the better. Stop complaining so much over things you can't change or control."

She added: "Stay healthy & beautiful as you are guys."

Nicole also posted a split screen image with a single individual on one side with the caption "The Support" alongside a second photo of a huge crowd with the caption "The Congratulations". Over this, she wrote: "Don't get fooled," alongside an emoji of a person with their finger over their mouth.

Sharing a photo of the pair's week one Waltz, Nicole added love heart emojis and wrote "cheering on my favs", before adding that their performance was "mesmerising".

However, the snap was shared on Instagram Stories, which automatically delete after 24 hours.

Tilly's doting dad Gordon hilariously credited himself as a “dance coach extraordinaire” as he wished his Tilly good luck ahead of the first show.

The famous chef, 54, who recently told Tilly's Strictly partner Nikita Kuzmin to “do his shirt up” in an hilarious clip, took to Instagram to share a snap of the pair ahead of their dance floor debut on Saturday 25 September.

The dad-of-five, who took part in a number of TikTok dances with his daughter Tilly during lockdown, described how he was “so proud” of her.

Gordon, who shares Megan, 23, Holly and Jack, 21, Tilly, 19, and two year old Oscar with wife Tana, penned: "Wishing these two the very best of luck ahead of tonight’s LIVE dance @tillyramsay @nikita__kuzmin @bbcstrictly. So proud of you Tills, love you from your dance coach extraordinaire Dad."
