Craig Revel Horwood has revealed having a same sex couple compete on 'Strictly Come Dancing' is "on the cards" and could take place as early as this year
Craig Revel Horwood has promised there will be a same sex couple on 'Strictly Come Dancing' in the near future.
The 50-year-old star - who, along with Bruno Tonioli, Len Goodman and Darcey Bussell, is a judge on the BBC dance contest - has revealed there are plans to have either two men or two women dance together.
He said: "A same sex couple on 'Strictly' - that is on the cards.
"It'll be either this year or next year, but most certainly, it will happen. They did it already in Hungary or somewhere.
"We should encourage that sort of thing, absolutely. There are competitions throughout the world that have same sex couples, you just have to decide who goes backwards, darling!"
Craig - who has been dating former 'Britain's Got Talent' contestant Damon Scott since 2013 - also confessed he thinks BBC Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw would be a great addition to the judging panel of rival show, 'The X Factor'.
He told OK! Online: "Nick Grimshaw would be good. I think it's good to change panels, although I'm pleased that Strictly haven't!
"Simon Cowell is always trying to fight back. He stole Alesha from us, now he's stolen our winner Caroline Flack, it's amazing isn't it?
"Strictly is the next stepping stone to one of Simon's shows."
