Big Brother UK’s Ballroom Dancer Doesn’t “Believe In” Same-Sex Dancing Couples

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 launch - LondonDrama continues to develop on the UK’s Celebrity Big Brother this week as James Jordan, a professional ballroom dancer who occasionally likes to be “butt fucked” with “a cheeky finger,” reveals what he really thinks about gay people.

James made sure to assert his heterosexuality during the first week of the show, threatening to punch fellow houseguest Gary Busey for asking if he was gay. “I’ve never hit a seventy-year-old before,” he said, making sure to inform the house that he has “lots of gay friends” but is “happily married” to a woman.

This week, the 36-year-old former Strictly Come Dancing contestant weighs in on the hot topic of dance competition shows casting same-sex couples. (This is very in in Europe right now).

“Latin dancing is about a man and a woman dancing with each other, not two people of the same sex,” he advised. “Just because you’re gay doesn’t mean you can’t dance with a woman.”

When asked if the current season of Strictly features a same-sex couple, he said: “No, I don’t believe in that either.”

Quick to play the “..but I have gay friends” card, James adds that his childhood dance idol was gay, and therefore his words cannot be homophobic. “My dance idol growing up was as camp as a butcher’s hook — he was totally gay. But he was the most masculine dancer you could ever meet. Why would you want to dance with men? Men with men?”

Strictly Come Dancing viewers in the UK have been asking the BBC One show to add a same-sex couple for at least two years, and have even found a perfect starter couple in Robin Windsor and Marcus Collins.

In 2010, the Israeli version of Strictly‘s multinational franchise cast its first same-sex couple, lesbian TV sportscaster Gili Shem Tov and professional dancer Dorit Milman.
