Gordon Ramsay’s daughter Tilly latest cast member to join Strictly Come Dancing

Another for the list.

Gordon Ramsay’s daughter Tilly is the latest celebrity heading on to Strictly Come Dancing this year.

Matilda, or as she’s commonly known Tilly, is the ninth contestant that’s been announced for the upcoming series of the hit BBC show.

The 19 year old may get her name from her famous father butt she’s certainly made her own way up the ladder, presenting a CBBC cooking series Matilda and the Ramsay Bunch.

A triple threat, Tilly is a chef, presenter and social media influencer whose aim for the dancing competition is to “show her dad how it’s really done.”

She said: “I’m so excited and grateful to be joining the Strictly family! I’m always up for fun new challenges and this will be my biggest adventure yet! I’m going to put my heart and soul into this and can’t wait to get my dancing shoes on and show my Dad how it’s really done! Bring on the glitz, glamour and sequins!”

And with over 9.5 million TikTok followers, she’s sure to bring a whole new audience to the series.

After presenting her series on CBBC, Tilly went on to be nominated for three Childen’s Baftas after the show saw her cooking alongside her family.

In 2017 she then published her first cooking book, and like the CBBC shoe, it was titled Matilda & The Ramsay Bunch: Tilly’s Kitchen Takeover.

Along with all of this, Tilly and her dad used to regularly host a cooking segment on This Morning called Big Chef, Little Chef, the same place where the news of her Strictly appearance broke.

Greg Wise was also announced for the series, who will be joining Katie McGlynn, Dan Walker, Sara Davies, Rhys Stephenson, and John Whaite.

Along with this lot, Tom Fletcher, Robert Webb, and AJ Odudu will also be making an appearance on the dancefloor.
