Shirley Ballas has said she hopes to get engaged to boyfriend Daniel Taylor next year.
The Strictly Come Dancing judge, 60, said she had already chosen her “bridesmaids” – including the BBC show’s professional dancers Giovanni Pernice, Gorka Marquez and Johannes Radebe.
Ballroom dancer and choreographer Ballas started dating actor Taylor in 2019 after working together in a Jack And The Beanstalk pantomime in Liverpool.
Ballas, who has been married twice previously, told MailOnline: “Maybe next year is on the cards, possibly.
“For my bridesmaids it would be my gaggle of gays, (her friends) Alan and Nathan from America, I am already thinking about that.
“It wouldn’t be straightforward, it would have a twist in it. Johannes, Gorka and Giovanni could be bridesmaids too. That could be fun.”
Speaking about their relationship, she added: “We’re very 50/50 so women have equality like men. So if I cook, he’ll wash up, he’ll vacuum and I’ll clean. He’s that type of person. He’s definitely a keeper for sure.”
Ballas also did not rule out proposing herself, adding: “I don’t know, we have mentioned it once or twice.”
The judge was married to Texan ballroom dancer Corky Ballas between 1985 and 2007 and the pair have a 34-year-old son, Mark.
Prior to that she was married to dance partner Sammy Stopford between 1980 and 1984.
