The BBC ballroom show is under increasing pressure to become more diverse, and Gleb has now said he loves the idea of dancing with a man.
“I think this would be great idea,” the Russian dancer told GuysULike.
“I think they would lose so many viewers,” he told The Sun earlier this year.
“But ballroom and Latin dancing is about a man dancing with a woman – that’s fact.”
He was added that he was annoyed by judge Craig Revel Horwood “pushing” the idea “because he’s gay”, after he said ‘Strictly’ should be encouraging the change.
