Azuka|July. 12, 2019
She revealed earlier this year that she is 'happier than ever' since embarking on a new relationship with her boyfriend Daniel Taylor.
And Shirley Ballas couldn't wipe the smile off her face, as she put on a cosy display with her beau at the Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat press night.
The Strictly Come Dancing judge, 58, looked completely loved-up as she posed on the red carpet with Daniel, 44, at the London Palladium on Thursday evening.
Shirley was power dressed in an eye-catching pink suit, which consisted of a tailored jacket and a pair of wide-legged suit trousers.
Shirley rocked the double-breasted number with a pair of satin pink stilettos with floral detailing across the toe, giving her frame some added inches of height.
The former ballroom dancer wore her glossy brunette locks in a voluminous blown out style, while sporting a pallet of glamorous make-up.
The former ballroom professional has been dating actor Daniel since last year after meeting when they appeared in a panto of Jack and the Beanstalk together.
Speaking to the Mirror , Shirley told how Daniel, who is 14 years her junior, didn't know who she was when they met as he had never seen Strictly before.
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 added she has introduced Daniel to her family and they all get along well, adding that he and her son Mark are both actors.
The dancer admitted that she has previously been asked if she was happy before and would respond by saying 'what is happy?' and that if what she feels now is happiness, she has not experienced it before.
Shirley married dancer Sammy Stopford when she was 18, with the relationship ending five years later.
She later married ballroom dancer Corky Ballas in 1985 with their son Mark born the following year.
