Strictly Come Dancing 2023 star Layton Williams is raising the veil on his personal life, exposing his boyfriend to his fans with a ‘hard launch’.
However, the Bad Education actor has not revealed his partner’s identity, preferring to keep some things hidden from his ‘nosy’ fans.
In a recent Instagram post, the 29-year-old recalls meeting his boyfriend for the first time at Glastonbury Musical Festival, showing a shot of them standing for the camera with a sea of tents visible behind them.
In the second photo, they can be seen having another ‘bath of wine’ together during the event, genuinely living the life of loved-up luxury.
‘Birthday boy 🎈 How it started vs How it’s going ❤️,’ Layton wrote in his caption, while also sharing the images – and an additional one – on his Instagram Story.
The third shot showed them going down the street together, both dressed appropriately for the winter weather in the UK.

‘Happy Birthday to my fave,’ he captioned the picture, before adding: ‘#HardLaunch but no @ coz ya’ll are too [nosy],’ explaining why he didn’t tag his boyfriend on his posts.
As predicted, Layton’s admirers were ecstatic about his big Instagram revelation.
‘Aww how lovely ❤️❤️❤️ woop it’s the hard launch!’ one person said, while another wrote: ‘Ahhhhhh look at you two love birds 😍.’
Someone else commented: ‘This has made my heart melt! Love seeing you so happy! Couldn’t be happier for you babes❤️.’
Layton discussed his growing romance during a recent visit on Alan Carr’s Life’s a Beach podcast.
‘I’ve got a man, you know, it’s new though, it’s only been a soft launch on Instagram,’ he said, according to the Express.
On Sunday night, Layton and his Strictly professional partner Nikita Kuzmin were placed in a perilous situation when they were paired with Angela Scanlon and Carlos Gu in the dance-off.
With Angela and Carlos eliminated from the competition, Layton and Nikita will now compete in Musicals Week, dancing to Backstage Romance from Moulin Rouge! The Opera.
Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday at 7.25pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
