Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, the Britain’s Got Talent judge David Walliams hinted at competing on the BBC reality dance contest in future. He said that his mom asked him whether he would like to take part in the show and the hist responded that he had never been asked about it but if he was, the answer would be ‘yes’ and there are two reasons for it. The first one is that dancing might help him to be in a better shape than he is now. The second reason is to get closer to the pro dancer Anton Du Beke, which, the TV show judge believes, could be a lot of fun. Walliams had a lot of speculation around his sexuality because of his ‘camp’ behavior, but he says that he identifies as straight. The BBC reality dance show has come under repeated fire over its reluctance to allow same-sex pairings in the contest, although they are more common in the professional dance world. Ahead of Strictly Come Dancing 2018, a spokesperson said that there is currently no plans to change the traditional mixed-sex dancing couples format of the show.
