Is Shirley Ballas engaged? Strictly judge bizarrely deletes photo of ‘special’ ring
1 November 2018, 09:09
Shirley Ballas, 58, has confused fans as to whether she may be engaged after she deleted a photo of her wearing a blinding ring on Instagram.
The Strictly Come Dancing judge, Shirley, swiftly took down a photo which revealed she had googled her own ‘engagement ring’, when she forgot to crop out the embarrassing giveaway.
Shirley’s cringeworthy blunder left fans no choice but to speculate as to whether she is planning to get hitched, despite not going public with a love interest.
The Strictly Come Dancing star initially set tongues wagging when she was pictured wearing the ring at the Pride of Britain Awards on Monday.
When quizzed about her new jewellery, Shirley replied: “Wouldn’t you like to know.” But her agent later confirmed she's not engaged, instead saying the ring is "special" to the head judge.

If Shirley has finally found love, it would be a welcomed chapter in her life after she previously admitted she was “hopeless” at trying to find love and hadn’t been on a date in three years.
Shirley was married to dancer Sammy Stepford from 1980 to 1984, and later got hitched to her second husband Corky Ballas from 1985 to 2007.
