People cannot believe what's underneath Judge Rinder's robes

Judge Rinder has flown somewhat under the radar of celebrity life so far.

Sure, he doesn’t exactly mince his words in his TV courtroom, and of course there was that time he was best man for Benedict Cumberbatch.

But other than that, the general man on the street probably couldn’t tell you too much about him. Until now.

Recently, we learned that Judge Rinder would be taking part in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing and tonight he unveiled his ballroom look in the first show of the series.

His moves during the group dance didn’t pass without comment, either.

Viewers quickly decided Judge Rinder was utterly hilarious, too, as he mock-snubbed mean judge Craig Revel Horwood and expressed surprise at his dancing partner, Oksana Platero.

He even claimed some early celebrity fans.

We want to see plenty more of Judge Rinder, so make sure he gets plenty of votes when Strictly returns. That’s an order.
