Strictly is showcasing a first this weekend as a specially-choreographed routine will feature a same-sex dancing couple.
Professionals Robin Windsor and Aljaž Skorjanec will be dancing together in a “Cops and Robbers.”
Although the segment of the routine that features their dancing together will only last for less than a minute, it marks a welcome return for Robin, who has had to miss a lot of this year’s SCD due to a back injury.
It is also seen as testing the water for for same-sex dance partnerships in the future. Speaking to the Mirror, Robin Windsor said: “I’m not sure if the British public are ready for it on the main show, but I think it would be a good idea to do it on a Children In Need special or the Christmas show.
“It would be a good way to test the waters. Then, if the public love it, why not go all out and do it for a full series? I’m up for anything.”
