    Strictly Come Dancing's Shirley Ballas became rather flustered on Saturday night when a professional dancer flirted with her and offered to pick her up.

    After Ellie Simmons and her pro dance partner Nikita Kuzim danced the Charleston to ‘Too Darn Hot’ by Kiss Me Kate, they received a huge applause from the audience.

    Equally as excited were the judges – including head judge Shirley, who was in awe of the couple's lifts.

    She gushed: "That end lift there. Let me tell you. It takes trust!"

    "She loves to be upside down!," chimed Nikita before Shirley exclaimed: "I want to try it!"

    Taking the head judge's words literally, Nikita walked off the dance floor and put his arms out in a flirty way, offering to lift Shirley up in the air.

    A flustered Shirley was left hot under the collar by the racy request as she squealed from her seat, putting her hands over her face and giggling.

    The exchange didn't go unnoticed by viewers at home as they were straight on social media to share their thoughts.

    "Nikita flirts with Shirley, very smart," penned one user.

    Another added: "Oh please Shirley would Nikita to lift her up."

    "Shirley’ll show them off for any handsome young man smh," tweeted a third.

    A fourth person echoed: "Shirley will be looking to score an 11 after Nikita offered to pick her up."

    While another said: "I would love it if Nikita went to do the lift. That would be hilarious."

    The judges were thoroughly impressed with Ellie and Nikita's performance, awarding them with their highest score of the series with 33 points.

    Hamza and Jowita found themselves at the top of the leaderboard after their Cha Cha saw them awarded with 38 points, with only Craig failing to give them a 10.

    Meanwhile at the other end were Tony and Katya who scored 21 for their Salsa.
