    Strictly Come Dancing judge Shirley Ballas has confessed that she takes showers with her dog.

    She joked that her Lhasa Apso – who she rescued six years ago – is the only other fella she strips off for alongside her toyboy lover Danny.

    The telly star bragged that she loves to quickstep into hot water with her pampered pooch and claimed it was her “secret skill” to keep him clean.

    Shirley, 62, beamed: “My dog, Charlie, is the only man other than Danny that I shower with!

    “I’m a pretty good dog groomer.”

    The dancing queen admitted that she has been throwing caution to the wind more since hitting her 60s and her relationship with actor Danny, 50, also helps her feel young.

    She told the new issue of Good Housekeeping: “I want to do things that people don’t think I can do, that don’t require false eyelashes and hair extensions – and I want people to go, ‘Oh my God! At her age?’

    “I’ve just done a ‘skyathlon’ – a zip line, wing walk and 15,000ft skydive – for the mental health charity CALM, and it was terrifying but exhilarating.

    “I do feel I’ve found the right person for me at this point in my life.

    “I’ve found my best mate in Danny because he understands my insecurities and he embraces them.

    “We both have these brightly coloured pyjamas from Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and he’s just as happy if I go to bed in those as he is if I wear a negligee or my Marks & Spencer big-girl knickers!”

    She added: “We recently went on an MSC cruise for seven days for Danny’s 50th birthday – we went dancing and to the theatre every day – and I laughed from the moment we got on the ship until the moment we got off.”
