During the chat, Tess was talking about the new Strictly Come Dancing head judge, Shirley Ballas.

The 48-year-old said: "I think Bruno knows her as she works on Dancing with the Stars.

"Shirley has worked over there. She’s well known to the American audience. I can’t wait to see another lady.

"Her credentials are unshakeable."

Tess is excited about having another lady on the panel, and she'll join Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood.

She joked: "I think she's going to keep the two boys under control, especially that naughty one at the end… Bruno, naming no names."
