The straight-talking judge, who has appeared on the panel of ‘Strictly’ every year since its inception, has confirmed that a same-sex couple appearing on the show is “on the cards”, and thinks it will happen sooner rather than later.

Last year, same-sex partnerships danced together on the show for the first time, for a brief moment during a group number the professionals were taking part in.

One person who won’t be happy with Craig’s news is former ‘Strictly’ pro James Jordan, who has spoken out about same-sex couples dancing together on the show in the past.

“Just because you’re gay doesn’t mean you can’t dance with a woman. Why would a man want to dance with a man?"

Among the celebrities rumoured for this year’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ are Shane Richie, Peter Andre and Louis Walsh, who has expressed interest in defecting from ‘X Factor’ to the BBC series.
