Shirley Ballas has hinted that she’s ready to tie the knot with boyfriend Danny Taylor.
The couple have been together for two years and have grown closer during lockdown.
Danny, 48, has teased that a proposal might not be too far off for the Strictly Come Dancing head judge, 60.
And, if he were to get down on one knee, it appears Shirley’s answer would be yes!
What did Shirley Ballas say about marrying boyfriend Danny?
It was actually Danny who made the comments about the imminent proposal.
Chatting to the Mirror, he was asked if marriage is on the cards for the pair – and his answer was pretty frank.
“It is a great institution. So watch this space. You just don’t know what could be in the pipeline,” he teased.
