What did Gordon say?

“Hey Tills, it’s your dad – Tik Tok coach, dancer extraordinaire,” Gordon said.

“Wishing you all the very best, we’re proud of you girl. Love you.”

Mum Tana chipped in: “Tilly, you’re incredibly brave. I’m terrified but so excited for you, good luck!”

But Gordon had the last word, urging his daughter: “And don’t date those dancers!”

Cutting back to the studio, Tilly responded: “Of course he has to slip something embarrassing in!”
