Strictly Come Dancing professional Neil Jones has said that he is up for pairing with a male celebrity in next year's series.
Boxer Nicola Adams and Neil's ex-wife Katya Jones teamed up this year to become the show's first ever same-sex pairing, although a coronavirus scare meant that they had to withdraw from the competition a few weeks in.
Neil was not given a celebrity partner this year due to a reduction in Strictly's broadcast from 13 weeks to nine but is eyeing up a return to the pro lineup in 2021.
Talking about being partnered with another man, he told The Sun: "I wouldn't have a problem with it. I'd embrace it. It would be great.
"We've seen so many great male dancers dance together in the past, so why not? We had Nicola on with Katya this year. If it was with another man I'd do the same."
He added: "This year has been difficult because there were less celebrities. Hopefully next year is back to normal again and I can get a partner. Fingers crossed."
The semi-final of this year's series airs on Saturday night on BBC One.
