With the “row” about same sex couples on Strictly Come Dancing rearing its head again, William Hill are offering 5/1 that there is at least one in the 2018 series and 6/5 that there is at least one same sex couple before the end of the 2020 series.


“The prospect of same sex couples on Strictly has been on the horizon for a few years now and it is a short price that we see at least one in the near future,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
