GORDON Ramsay was seen looking on while Strictly Come Dancing’s judges delivered their verdict on his daughter Tilly – and fans think they know why.
The terrifying chef, famous for his fiery temper and sweary TV outbursts, was shown in the audience with wife Tana.
Many suggested he was there to intimidate the judges into being nice to 20-year-old Tilly.
While Gordon parked himself by the most harsh judge, Craig Revel Horwood, many said it was Anton DuBeke who was scared of him.
One viewer wrote: “Anton terrified that Gordon will corner him in the car park, there.”
Another laughed: “Anton more scared of Gordon Ramsey than the rest.”
A third insisted: “Gordon looks like he’s ready to tackle someone if they say anything against Tilly lmao.”
Gordon was seen reaching out and grasping Tilly’s hand as she went upstairs to await the judges’ scores.
Tilly took 29 points from the judges last night and will learn their fate once the public votes are included on tonight’s results show.
The TV star and her pro partner Nikita Kuzmin were looking to recover in the competition with a quickstep to Damita Jo’s I Won’t Dance, after landing in last week’s dance off.
They narrowly avoided exiting the show after finding themselves in the bottom two following the public vote, but Olympic swimmer Adam Peaty and Katya Jones were eliminated from the show instead.
Tilly and Gordon recently celebrated their birthdays with a joint party after she turned 20 and he 55.

The chef marked the occasion by writing: “I can’t think of a better person to share my birthday with than this adorable gracious young lady.
“Always putting others first before herself and you’ve grown up to become an amazing role model.
“Happy Birthday darling can’t wait to see you very soon love you so much Dad.”
She replied: “Happy birthday to the best dad ever!!
‘You are the most supportive person and best role model I could ever ask for and you have helped me become who I am today.
“I couldn’t think of a better person to share this day with and I can’t wait until we can celebrate together, love you so so much.”
