Strictly Come Dancing
featured its first same-sex dance over the weekend.
The show's professional dancers took to the dancefloor for a special 'cops and robbers' themed performance on Sunday night's (November 23) results show.
For a short segment of the routine, the male dancers performed together as cops, while the female dancers also partnered up, while dressed as robbers.
Out gay dancer Robin Windsor returned to the show for the performance, after being forced to pull out of the current series due to a back injury. He danced with reigning champion Aljaž Skorjanec.
Windsor recently said that he has spoken to BBC bosses about the possibility of a same-sex couple appearing on the show, suggesting that they could compete on either the show’s one-off Children in Need or Christmas specials to “test the waters” - read more here
