Strictly Come Dancing is reportedly set to feature its very first same-sex male pairing in the upcoming series.

Tom Daley and Alan Carr are among the famous faces who have been approached to make up the pairing, according to The Sun.

And the publication also claims whichever celebrity has been signed up will be partnered with Graziano Di Prima, after the dancer, 27, impressed bosses with his powerful performance with co-star Johannes Radebe, 34.

A source told the paper: 'The bosses are thrilled 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.'

The Italian star, who is engaged to dancer Giada Lini, and Johannes became the first professionals on the show to perform a same-sex couple dance back in 2019.

The couple received rave reviews when they danced together during Emile Sande's performance.

But in the days that followed, the routine led to nearly 300 complaints however a report for the BBC later revealed the complaints wouldn't be upheld.

Previously speaking about the backlash, Graziano told Attitude Magazine: 'We weren’t worried about it, OK, there were 200 complaints, but there were millions of people writing to us, sending us videos saying thank you and celebrating our friendship.'  

MailOnline has approached representatives of Strictly Come Dancing, Alan Carr and Tom Daley for comment.
