Would you like to see same-sex couples dancing on Strictly?
Craig Revel Horwood has said the BBC should introduce same-sex couples on Strictly Come Dancing – and predicted it will happen next year.
His comments come after the BBC said that there were “no plans” to make the move on the TV show.
The controversial judge said that the tango was originally danced between two men.
He told ITV show Lorraine: “I think same-sex couples can exist!
“You only have to decide who’s going to go backwards really, that’s the only difference.”
Asked whether viewers could see same-sex couples in future, he said: “I hope so, I really hope so. In the world of competition, there are same-sex couples…
“So there’s no reason why that can’t happen. The Beeb have to decide whether they want to do that one year. I think it will probably happen next year.”
What are your views? Are you a fan of Strictly? Would you like to see same-sex couples dancing together? Or are you happy with the present format of the dancing pairs being a man and a woman?
