Wearing a black pleated faux leather skirt and a matching black shirt, Tilly pulled a dramatic pose as she gears up for tonight’s Paso Doble.
In the second photo, Tilly and Nikita then held a piercing gaze as they practised their facial expressions.
Taking a trip down memory lane, Gordon shared a sweet throwback snap of his daughter Tilly, 19, alongside his wife Tana.
He wrote: “Wishing these two all the very best for tonight’s Paso Doble @tillyramsay @nikita_kuzmin @bbcstrictly.
“What an incredible week of training it’s been, hard work pays off, so proud of you love you Dad xxx”
Tilly will be performing this traditional fast-paced Spanish dance which will be accompanied with e briskly paced paso doble music.
Earlier this month, Gordon was overcome with emotion watching social media star Tilly dance the Charleston on the BBC One show.
He could be seen trying to cover his crying from the cameras as he swelled up with pride over Tilly’s high-scoring dance.
The Sun revealed that Tilly has been sharing recipes with her Ukrainian dance partner, 23, and showing him how to make some of her favourite dishes.
A source told The Sun: “Tilly and Nikita are great mates – on and off the show. When they are not training they are often hanging out together and Nikita has been round for dinner with Tilly and the Ramsays more than once.
“He loves his food but because he has spent so much of his life on the dancefloor he’s never had the time to really practice cooking. Tilly has therefore been giving him some tips and sharing some recipes.
“Tilly’s mum and dad, Gordon and Tana, are also big fans of Nikita. They think he’s a great guy and love the job he’s doing teaching Tilly to dance.”
Nikita has been dating fellow professional dancer Nicole Wirt, who lives in Germany, since 2016.
