Dancing On Ice set to beat Strictly to same sex TV landmark

Dancing On Ice is set to make TV history by featuring a same-sex couple, beating BBC's Strictly to the telly landmark.

ITV bosses are set to pair pro skater Matt Evers with Steps singer Ian 'H' Watkins for the upcoming series.

There have been years of speculation about same-sex couples appearing on dance shows, with Strictly featuring male dancers together in group numbers but the ITV show has beaten its rival in pairing a pro with a celeb.

The Steps singer had asked Dancing On Ice producers whether he could be paired with a male skater and the team were "fully supportive" of it.

Strictly has been heavily tipped to lead the way with this but opted against a same-sex couple for the current series despite years of speculation.
