What a load of bollocks.

According to some media reports (The Guardian being one who commented) there has been talk of the organisers of Strictly Come Dancing discussing the future possibilities of same-sex partner dancing in the show. Without getting too deep into it, that will surely be like dropping a match in a box of fireworks? Why mess with the format of one of the most popular ( family) shows on T.V.? Answers on a postcard to Craig Revel Horwood who apparently supports the idea. I mention it only because the topic arose on a dance forum I belong to. It'll surely never happen?

Not sure how it messes with the format - surely the format stays the same?

You know what he means cheeky! Boy dances with girl, girl dances with boy. There's no real reason for this as far as I can see, just the way it's always been and folk are perhaps challenging this. Will it make any difference? Not to me it won't. I don't watch the shite!

Like H.G says, I' sure you know what I mean Taddy. Maybe the producers want to create issues on the "No such thing as bad publicity" angle by making the programme controversial. If so, I'm sure they'll attain their objective, but at what cost?

Of course it'll happen. Who's brave enough to risk their media career by objecting?

I hardly think letting boys dance with boys or girls dance with girls is controversial! Same sex dance couples is becoming more common certainly in modern dance, so why not reflect that on the show?

I think ballroom/partner dancing is just a wee bit different than general modern dance or group dance Jimbo, but time will no doubt tell. End of day, as ever, que sera. Like Mr Dylan said, "Times they are a changing!".... :|

Why not just jump to the inevitable minority fad and have boys dressed as girls dancing with girls dressed as boys?

Can't do that Hobes, already claimed. It's called "pantomime".. :D

Aye... i thought the key to the format was celebs being taught how to dance whilst facing weekly votes and judges... i very much doubt that it'll significantly change the show. I also don't really care as I'd rather watch moss grow! ;-)

WHAT?!?! The world of arts and dance is no place for same-sex couples. The very notion's outrageous.

Absolutely none, would be my estimate.

Oh I don't know, reckon they'd lose more viewers than they'd gain.
