Strictly Come Dancing is set to shake things up for their upcoming series with the show’s first same-sex couples, according to reports.
They will be the first time same-sex partners to have competed in the competition since the show kicked off 16-years-ago.
Speaking to The Sun, a source said: “This is another intriguing twist in the journey.
“Everyone assumed producers would simply pair gay pro Johannes Radebe with a male celebrity but they felt that was too obvious. “
The source went on to say: “Then there was a suggestion they would opt to put two women together.
“But nobody expected having pairings of both genders.”
It’s believed that British singer Jessie J and Sex Education actress Gillian Anderson are the two dream signings for bosses.
However, it’s set to be a tough year for bosses trying to sign celebrities for the show with fewer competitors due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Daily Star Online has previously reported that professional stars AJ Pritchard and Kevin Clifton may not be replaced following their departure from the show.
Bosses at the Beeb have since confirmed that the show will run for a shorter period of time after kicking off in October.
Strictly returns to screens in October on BBC One.
