The father-daughter duo were watching the story of a girl named Emily, who died after being diagnosed with cancer at the age of 22.

Gordon said to Milly: ‘When we found out you had a tumour when you were 12 and that was that horrible period.

‘Is it cancer or is it non-malignant? So going into theatre with you… Do you remember?’  

Former Strictly star Tilly nodded as her famous father continued: ‘And it wasn’t cancer. F***ing hell!’, while his daughter added that she was ‘very lucky’.

Elsewhere in the episode, the chef probed whether his daughter has a boyfriend, with Tilly eventually confessing that she is in a relationship – as her dad jumped for joy and exclaimed ‘finally’.

It comes after the young star’s stint on Strictly Come Dancing last year, which ignited rumours of a romance between her and pro partner Nikita Kuzmin.

Appearing on the celebrity version of Channel 4’s Gogglebox for Stand Up To Cancer, Gordon questioned his daughter on her dating life before they got stuck into the TV.

It comes after reports of Tilly growing close to her former Strictly partner Nikita, with the pair sharing a close bond since appearing on the show together.

Tilly and Nikita formed a close bond during the show, and set tongues wagging last year when they were seen leaving his flat together.

The pair have reunited many times since, but insisted they were just close friends – with Tilly reportedly seeing the dancer as a ‘big brother’ figure.

She appeared on the Channel 4 show with Gordon in matching navy blue onesies, aiming to raise money for Stand Up To Cancer. 

Gordon shared of the TV appearance: ‘We’re always happy to support the superb work that Stand Up To Cancer do, and despite our TV tastes being polar opposites, we had a lot of fun filming this very special episode of Gogglebox.’
