Strictly Come Dancing is set to have its first ever same-sex couple.

Olympic boxer Nicola Adams will be paired with a woman, though her dance partner has not yet been revealed.

Adams told BBC Breakfast that she had made the suggestion herself when she was asked to take part in the series.

Although she is the first contestant to be part of a same-sex partnership, the show previously featured two male professionals dancing together in a one-off routine.

Joe O'Shea and Jennifer Gannon discussed this in our weekly TV slot, as well as the return of The Late Late Show, Carole Baskin's participation in Dancing with the Stars and the praise for Brendan Gleeson's performance as Donald Trump in The Comey Rule.
