The Strictly judge is loved-up with Danny Taylor

Shirley and American ballroom dancer Corky tied the knot in 1985, before eventually divorcing in 2007. In an eye-opening interview with The Guardian, the broadcaster revealed that one of her biggest life regrets centred on her marriage to Corky. She added: "If you could go back and do things again, I'd probably do things differently. If you're young when you get married it's extremely difficult."

Shirley has since found love with actor Danny Taylor. The loved-up duo first met during the 2018-2019 winter pantomime season, where they both took part in a Christmas production of Jack and the Beanstalk at the Liverpool Empire.
