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.
Blimey judge Rinder is ripped! Did not expect that!

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.

We want to see plenty more of Judge Rinder, so make sure he gets plenty of votes when Strictly returns. That’s an order.
I know for a fact Judge Rinder is gonna make my life whilst he's on Strictly
