Irving Davies is a choreographer mentioned by Delia in the Radio Scotland interview.

as I was doing it (Way Out), the choreographer Vin Davies happened to be walking down the corridor and his feet started tapping and he said "I want that!" and I said "No, you can't! I've done it for the BBC." And so he implored me to do something in the same style, in eleven time and thirteen time, for his dance group, which I did.

Davies was a dancer and choreographer who enjoyed a sixty year, award winning career[1].

Interestingly, one of Delia's Attic Tapes is labelled "Vin Track" and described as an "Odd trippy song and filtered violins track",[2] so it may be that she created something for him.
