Strictly Come Dancing is back and one of its new celebrity stars has had fans of the show talking about more than just his new dance partner.

As actor Will Mellor, 46, best known for his role as Gaz Wilkinson in the hit show Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, sat down with Strictly host Claudia Winkleman he spoke about his new dance partner Nancy Xu.

But viewers couldn’t help but zone in on a little more than his dance partner as his “snug” trousers had people flocking to Twitter.

One wrote: “Will certainly can fill out a pair of trousers…ahem. #strictly”.

Another tweeted: “Will Mellor’s trousers look a bit snug… #Strictly”.

Will was the first celebrity to be confirmed for the 2022 series.

During an episode of BBC Breakfast, presenters Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt welcomed Will to the studio and announced that he would be donning some sequins and putting on his dancing shoes as he gets ready to hit the dancefloor.

Speaking of the announcement, Will said: “I’m honestly so chuffed to be taking part in Strictly Come Dancing this year! Not going to lie, it’s totally out of my comfort zone and I know it will be a huge challenge but that’s what life is all about.

“This is also my Mum’s favourite show and she’s had a really tough few years so I’m doing this for her as well. Bring it on!”

While Will may be best known for playing Gaz in the noughties sitcom Two Pints of Lager and A Packet of Crisps, viewers may also know the actor from his roles in shows including Line of Duty, Broadchurch and Hollyoaks.

In a clip from tonight’s show, Will was back in Runcorn, Cheshire, where he spent ten years filming his biggest show.

Here is where he was set to meet his new Strictly dancing partner, Nancy.

The pair looked thrilled as they saw each other, with Nancy leaping into her new dancing partner’s arms.

Speaking of returning to Runcorn, Will said: “It just seems right that I’m here, meeting my pro…”

Before he met Nancy, he put his head in his hands as he said: “Nervous. Anxiety kicking in now… it’s scary.”

As he approached Nancy, who had her back to him, he beamed as he realised who it was.

She, in turn, looked ecstatic as she laid eyes on her new partner for this year’s show, who she is going to coach.

Strictly Come Dancing airs on Friday 23 September on BBC One.
