Shirley Ballas causes a stir with racy boyfriend joke on Family Fortunes

Shirley Ballas caused a stir with a racy boyfriend joke in her appearance on Family Fortunes.

The celebrity special for the gameshow returned on ITV for Boxing Day, once again presented by celebrity chef Gino D’Acampo.

Strictly Come Dancing judge Shirley, 60, was present alongside family members and her partner Daniel Taylor.

Responding to a question about her judging techniques from Gino, Shirley answered: “I like to scan everything and judge from the bottom up.”

“And I like to give positive critique,” she added to a laugh, before adding: “As well as constructive criticism.”

Asked if marriage was on the cards soon, Danny smiled: “It is a great institution. So watch this space.

“You just don’t know what could be in the pipeline.”

Meanwhile, Shirley reflected on how the pair’s relationship had grown over the last year.

“We got to spend the whole of lockdown together,” noted Shirley. “So we really got to know each other on a more personal level. We used to see each other once a week. Now we see each other every day, so we learned a lot about each other.”

Family Fortunes is available on catch-up on ITV Hub.
