New Strictly head judge to keep men on toes, says Tess

By Laura Harding

Strictly Come Dancing host Tess Daly has said she hopes new head judge Shirley Ballas keeps the men on the panel in line.

The 56-year-old, known as the Queen of Latin, was announced as the surprise new head judge on the BBC One show, taking over from Len Goodman.

Daly told ITV's Lorraine: "She's a Wirral lass... so she's coming home to be on our panel and I can't wait to see another lady.

"I think she's going to keep those two boys in order, especially that naughty one on the end, Bruno (Tonioli).

"He needs keeping under control. He's up out of his chair and he gets very excitable, but I love him for that."
