Bal­las: Strictly should have same-sex pair

Scottish Daily Mail - - News -

STRICTLY Come Danc­ing’s head judge Shirley Bal­las says she would like noth­ing more than for a same-sex cou­ple to be in­cluded in the com­pe­ti­tion.

The 57-year-old added she ‘couldn’t think of any­thing more ex­cit­ing’ than see­ing two men or two women com­pete to­gether.

She pointed out that a male pair had just made the fi­nal of the Ital­ian ver­sion of Strictly.

Asked about the pos­si­bil­ity of that hap­pen­ing in the UK, Mrs Bal­las told ITV’s Good Morn­ing Bri­tain: ‘Things are chang­ing. I couldn’t think of any­thing more ex­cit­ing so yes, I’m for it.’

The BBC has pre­vi­ously said it has ‘no plans’ to in­clude same­sex cou­ples in the hit show.

Judge: Shirley Bal­las
