It seems that the bosses of Strictly Come Dancing are not afraid of Gordon Ramsay – they asked his daughter Matilda to participate in the series.
The Beeb approached the 18-year-old TV host, known as Tilly, to appear in the ballroom competition because they think she will be successful.
A source said: “Tilly is already popular with young viewers of her CBBC shows and the bosses think she could bring this audience with her.
“They’ve already seen Joe Sugg, Karim Zeroual and Saffron Barker attract new fans to the series and they hope she can do the same.
“Tilly wants to be a full-fledged star, rather than just being known as Gordon’s daughter, and Strictly could be a great way for her to get out of her father’s shadow.
“They spoke to her officially and told her that she could participate this year or next year. They left the ball in his court. “
Since 2015, Tilly has hosted Matilda And The Ramsay Bunch and appeared alongside her father in This Morning.
The show has seen a trend to get young viewers to watch, with YouTube star Joe second in 2018 and children’s television actor Karim doing the same in 2019.
YouTuber Saffron finished fifth in the same year.
Despite the pandemic making it strictly impossible to film Strictly strictly as usual, the bosses have intensified their efforts to get big names on board.
They also spoke to Jonathan Ross’s wife, Jane Goldman, as we revealed last week, and hoped to bag Michelle Keegan, but she refused.
The source added, “Tilly wants to be known as more than her father’s eldest daughter.
“Strictly would be the perfect platform to give it a full name and the chance to win a trophy that Gordon doesn’t have. “
Strictly is in chaos this year as bosses try to figure out how they can maintain the rules of social distancing while continuing to compete.
One suggested idea is that each professional and their celebrity isolate themselves together, which could fuel the rumor of the Strictly curse.
I wouldn’t want to be the dancer who must have met Gordon afterwards if this idea got the green light.
