STRICTLY star Tilly Ramsay looked unrecognisable as she transformed to perform a romantic waltz in the first live show.
Her mum Tana broke down in tears as she supported the 19-year-old from the sidelines in the studio, as her “orgoglioso” dad Gordon watched from home.
Proving her TikTok routines with her celebrity chef father had helped, Tilly was praised for her stunning performance.
New judge Anton Du Beke said: “I think you’ll do marvellously as you look just gorgeous.”
Speaking to Claudia Winkleman afterwards, Tilly said: “Stuff to work on, but excited to do that and get to training.
“I had so much fun learning the waltz and performing it tonight.”
The judges awarded her a total of 21 punti – as her emotional mum beamed with pride after drying her eyes.
Young chef Tilly revealed this week how Gordon got “irritato” after she found a “new dance partner”.

Speaking on her introduction to the BBC One dance competition last week, Tilly told of how her dad reacted to the news.
“I think it would be great to see him dance,” she said of her dad. “He’s actually really upset that I’ve got a new dance partner.”
