Gordon Ramsay has awkwardly scolded Strictly Come Dancing star Nikita Kuzmin for his open shirt.

Gordon’s daughter and fellow TV chef Tilly Ramsay, 19, is a contestant on the 2021 series of the hit BBC One show.

On the launch show which aired on Saturday, Tilly was paired up with new Strictly professional dancer Nikita Kuzmin.

The Ukrainian dancer, 23, previously appeared on the German television series Let’s Dance.

When Nikita joined the show he had said: "I've always been amazed by the magic Strictly Come Dancing brings and that no matter what country I have found myself living in, I've never missed a chance to watch it."

He added: “Joining it as a professional dancer is my big chance to make some magic on the most famous dance floor. I can't wait to give it my all.”

However, while Tilly was delighted to be paired with Nikita and vice versa, her dad Gordon had some choice words for the professional dancer - who has already caused a stir online.

Speaking in a video call with her father to introduce Nikita to him, Tilly was left giggling at a comment from her dad.

Tilly said: “Dad, meet Nikita!”

“Nice to meet you,” greeted Nikita.

Gordon then said: “Congratulations and good luck to you both.”

Tilly thanked her dad, but then Gordon commented: “Nikita, can you do me a favour? Can you do your shirt up?”

Tilly laughed as she put her hand to her head: “Oh dad….”

Nikita then swiftly did his shirt up.

As the video ended and the show cut to Claudia Winkelman chatting to Tilly and Nikita in the studio, Nikita swiftly did up his shirt again to the laughs of the studio audience.

Nikita will have to be careful to not upset Mr Ramsay!
