Craig Revel Horwoord reveals all
In an interview with OK!, Craig Revel Horwood has revealed that Strictly Come Dancing will feature a same sex couple this year or the next.
He said at the TruTV Drag Race party last night, that it wasn’t clear what gender the couple would be but assured fans that it would definitely be happening.
“It’ll be either this year or next, but most certainly it will happen. They did it already in Hungary or somewhere,” Craig said.
In 2014 the British Dance Council considered changing the rules for ballroom dancing, meaning same sex couples would not be allowed to participate in events. This however would not have affected a TV show such as Strictly Come Dancing.
Craig went on to say: “We should encourage that sort of thing absolutely, there are competitions throughout the world that have same sex couples, you just have to decide who goes backwards darling.”
GT recently reported on Mr Gay World, Stuart Hatton Jr, and strictly dancer Callum MacDonald coming together with Freed of London to support the future of same-sex dancing.
This is definitely a move in the right direction and we can’t wait!
