He adds: "And this year is no different with John [Whaite] and Johannes [Radebe] dancing together, and Rose being the first deaf person in the competition. It just goes to show how Strictly mirrors what is going on in the wider society."

"And through my years of watching professional dance, more often than not I've seen two men – Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, for example - but interestingly, rarely two women."
