Shirley Ballas hasn’t seen toyboy ‘for months and he’s not in a place to marry’

Shirley Ballas gives update on foot injury

Shirley Ballas and Danny Taylor got together in 2019 after meeting in Pantomime, with the former hoping for a proposal at some point.

However, the head judge on Strictly Come Dancing has revealed she has now changed her mind, as she still lives with her mother and Danny is not in the place to get married now.

She confessed to MailOnline: “The only pressure I felt was my own — it was me who was rushing to get married.

“Then things changed last year — my mum moved in and Danny’s not in a place to get married. We’re good as we are.

“We both travel, so I haven’t seen him for months, but we’re good friends and that works.”

The pro dancer was previously married to former ballroom star Sammy Stopford from 1980 to 1984 before tying the knot with dancer Corky Ballas in 1985, with the couple splitting up in 2007 after 22 years together.

Shirley, 62, has been dating actor Danny, 50, since January 2019 after meeting during rehearsals for Jack And The Beanstalk over the Christmas period.

The couple had gone from strength to strength, and many had assumed they had taken the next step in their relationship when Shirley began sporting a large diamond ring on her wedding finger.

Shirley – who was appointed Strictly’s head judge in 2017 following the departure of the late Len Goodman – may have opted out of a third wedding, but she has plenty to keep her on her toes, as she is soon to be a grandmother.

The Strictly judge has already decided she is not settling for a mediocre grandparent name.

She told Closer: “I was thinking glitterball or glitzy – Glitterball Nan or something. Not Grandma or Granny, I need something a little bit more… I’ll think of a cute name.”

She added: “It’s beyond exciting really, because I never knew whether they were having children.

“I kept asking and [Mark would] say, ‘Stop asking, Mum, stop asking’. So now we’ve got this fantastic news. My daughter-in-law looks phenomenal – she’s just glowing.

“Music runs in their bones, so I think their child is going to have a life in stage and music.”

It comes as Strictly Come Dancing professional Giovanni Pernice recently sent her a wonderful message as she took on an extraordinary challenge.

The popular Italian declared Shirley the “best woman ever” in a gushing Instagram post.

He shared a picture of himself with Shirley, as the judge asked fans to support her impressive charity skydive challenge.

Giovanni said: “That’s the reason I want to marry this woman.”
