Ballas: Strictly should have same-sex pair
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.
