Shirley and Daniel started dating last year after they met while starring in pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk together in Liverpool.

And she previously told the Mirror that he had no idea who she was when they first met, as he'd never seen an episode of Strictly.

She said: "It’s hard to find somebody who’s compatible with you. I feel like I’ve come full circle and I’ve found somebody.

"It’s great to have found him after being single for so long. When we did our first job together he was like 'Shirley who?'

"He’d never watched Strictly, knew nothing about me. It’s been a warm experience."

Shirley has introduced Daniel to her family, who are all big fans of the actor.

The dancer also gushed about her romance during an appearance on Loose Women.

She said: "I never thought i would find another person that would care about me again."

When asked why, she explained: "Just past history and just different men that you're with, that gnaw away a little bit at your confidence and everything like that, it was more personal reasons."
