Whilst Tilly didn't post any birthday tributes on her social media, she did reference this week's Strictly results show, which saw her and dance partner Nikita Kuzmin fighting for a place in the competition after landing on the bottom two.

"What an emotional rollercoaster. WOW, even though I always knew this might happen, it's definitely very hard to be in a dance-off!!" she said.
