Strictly star Tilly Ramsay admits she was responsible for dance partner costume malfunction in dance-off

Tilly Ramsay has admitted she was responsible for unbuttoning dance partner Nikita Kuzmin’s shirt during their dance on Strictly.

And Tilly, who is Gordon Ramsay’s daughter, was relentlessly teased about it by host Rylan Clark after she admitted to it on Strictly: It Take Two.

Tilly, 20, and Nikita, 19, exited the dance show on Sunday and caused a stir during their last performance – a Samba to Dua Lipa’s Levitating which saw dance pro Nikita remove his shirt.

Nikita initially insisted during the chat with Rylan that his outfit ‘had a mind of its own’, but then he admitted: “Tilly was the one who unbuttoned my button”.

Tilly protested: “That’s not true!” as Rylan pushed: “This is how rumours start, come on!”

However after Nikita asked people to watch back the show to see what happened Tilly confessed: “My hand got caught – my hand pulled your shirt!”

Rylan couldn’t resist ribbing: :”My hand accidentally unbuttoned your shirt. That’s how it starts babe, trust me!”

The dance pair are the best of friends and said they had the “perfect partnership”.

Nikita said: ‘We’re just laughing about it, it’s nothing serious. I mean, we’re professional dancers here and we’re here to make and have an amazing journey on Strictly and to have fun.’

Tilly said of her time on the programme: “Every moment has just been incredible and I’ve had the best person to dance with for the past 10 weeks. I really did not want it to be my last dance.”

Strictly: It Takes Two airs at 6.30pm on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer
