Strictly Come Dancing's head judge Shirley Ballas has set the record straight to quash rumours that she and partner Danny Taylor have parted ways.

Despite reports suggesting their engagement ended in 2023 and a separation followed this year, the 63-year-old professional dancer, who's currently prepping for the new series of the BBC dance competition, begged to differ, saying, "Danny and I are still together".

Not only did she confirm they were stronger than ever, but she also disclosed having "changed her mind" about marriage, following two divorces. "Danny and I are still together contrary to anything you might read.

Who knows [if we'll get married]," she told The Mirror. The current season isn't the only joyous occasion in Shirley's life; she recently became a grandmother when son Mark - who lives in Los Angeles - had a son, Banksi Wylde Ballas.
