The 19-year-old is the youngest member of the Strictly 2021 cast so far and is a big name on TikTok, where she has over 9.5 million followers.
Following in her dad’s footsteps, she has presented CBBC food show Matilda and the Ramsay Bunch and published a spin-off cook book in 2017 titled Tilly’s Kitchen Takeover.

Speaking about joining the cast of Strictly, Tilly said: “I’m so excited and grateful to be joining the Strictly family!
“I’m always up for fun new challenges and this will be my biggest adventure yet! I’m going to put my heart and soul into this and can’t wait to get my dancing shoes on and show my Dad how it’s really done! Bring on the glitz, glamour and sequins!”
