There were two new, cute stars of Strictly Come Dancing, after Claudia Winkleman revealed the link between two dogs and Danny Mac

Strictly Come Dancing was full of flair and fancy footwork last night, but that’s not what Claudia Winkleman wanted to talk to Danny Mac about…

As he and his pro partner, Oti Mabuse, caught their breath after a furiously fast quickstep Claudia wanted to talk to Danny about his mother… Or, more to the point, how his mother gets into the swing of Danny’s dance routines each week…

“Can I just confirm that your magnificent mum dresses her dogs, Bailey and Barney, to match your outfits every week?” she asked Danny, who didn’t quite know where to look.

Danny was caught on the hop when Claudia asked him about his mum’s Strictly habit

“Is this fact?”

“Yes,” Danny admitted, as a picture went up of the dogs dressed for Danny’s quickstep.

“They were Zorro last week,” he revealed.

“This is amazing!” said Claudia and then made a plea to camera to Danny’s mum:

“Can you just send in everything you have, please?”

And we hope she does!
