Shirley Ballas, one of the judges on Strictly Come Dancing, has shown there’s plenty of fun to be had between Christmas and New Year.

How? Well, the TV star was seen packing on the PDA with boyfriend Danny Taylor after dinner at Tomahawk Steak House in Darlington on Christmas night because, why not?

We say good for them!

The couple’s night out follows a month of work in the northeastern English town for the pair.

They’re currently performing alongside each other in the Jack and the Beanstalk pantomime, also featuring Britain’s Got Talent star George Sampson.

It’s running until 5 January 2020. Cute!

In fact, panto has an important place in Shirley and The Bill actor Danny’s relationship history.

Speaking on Loose Woman this year, she explained: ‘We met on panto as friends.

‘It didn’t really take off until March… for him. I fell in love way before. I think for me it was first sight. He was going through a difficult time in his relationship.’

She added that ‘then probably in about February, I said: “I love you Danny” and he said: “I know”. It took a while.’

Earlier this month Shirley opened up about her relationship, admitting it angers her when people make a big deal out of the age gap.

Firm agree.

‘It makes me cross when he is described as a toyboy,’ she told Saga magazine. ‘He is a 47-year-old grown man who can make his own choices. He is not 18.’

She went on: ‘You can have a man who is 25 years older than his girlfriend and no one says anything.’
