TOM DALEY 'SET TO BE PART OF STRICTLY'S FIRST SAME-SEX MALE COUPLE'

Olympic gold medallist diver Tom Daley is reportedly set to be part of Strictly Come Dancing's first ever same-sex competing couple.



Last series Nicola Adams and Katya Jones made history as the first ever same-sex pairing on the BBC show. The BBC are set have an all-male pairing this series, with Tom Daley the favourite to join the show.



An insider told The Sun: "The bosses are thrilled that Strictly will be able to show its first all-male couple this year. And they have their sights firmly on Graziano. There is no reason why a gay celebrity should automatically be paired with a gay dancer."


Other celebs including Alan Carr were reportedly approached, but have likely declined to take part.



The BBC declined to comment. The Strictly Come Dancing cast of 2021 will be revealed this August.
