STRICTLY’S Shirley Ballas looked stunning as she and her toyboy boyfriend, Daniel Taylor, made their red carpet debut together.
The 58-year-old beamed as she cosied up to her 44-year-old hunk at the press night of Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
Radiant in a bubblegum-pink suit and quirky floral heels, the dancing queen accessorised with a black handbag and pink tassel earrings.
The loved-up couple were photographed together as they headed to the London Palladium to watch the new show.
Shirley and Daniel started dating last year after they met while starring in pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk together in Liverpool.
The star revealed 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.”
Also in attendance at the press night of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s biblical musical was Britain’s Got Talent judge, Amanda Holden, ex-Strictly judge Arlene Phillips, actor Christopher Biggins, TV personality Vanessa Feltz, and WestEnd star Beverly Knight.
The revival of the show, to mark the musical’s 40th anniversary, stars Sheridan Smith and Jason Donovan as the narrator and Pharaoh, respectively.
It was also recently announced for a one-night-only New York City concert staging at David Geffen Hall in early 2020. An all-star cast is expected to be revealed very soon.
