Loose Women: Shirley emerged from the panel to reveal that she was wearing crotchless jeans [ITV]
Strictly Come Dancing judge, Shirley Ballas delighted viewers by stripping down to her knickers during an appearance on Loose Women.
The professional dancer was discussing an unusual pair of crotchless jeans on ASOS, which went viral online due to their quirky design.
However, she then shocked the audience by emerging from her seat sporting a pair.

The 57-year-old grinned cheekily and spun around as she showed off her new outfit, which had a hole in the upper thigh area, and instead featured an edgy silver chain.
As the camera panned closer to the BBC judge, she revealed that the jeans also had a hole in the back, displaying her small black knickers and toned bottom.
Thrilled as Shirley modelled her risque outfit, fans took to social media to sing her praises.

While another admirer added: “SHIRLEY totally Slaying. Sexy Legs and nice Bum (sic).”
A third fan tweeted the star directly, saying: “Shirley, you almost make those ridiculous jeans look wearable, fabulous.”

The crotchless jeans themselves received a far less positive reception, however.
Coming in at £75 from the brand Ragged Priest, several viewers simply could not understand the point of them.
One viewer wrote: “How are crotchless jeans even a thing like WHAT, why don’t you just wear no bottoms instead #LooseWomen.”
While another commented: “Jeans that show your nix off. No thanks #LooseWomen (sic).”
