LGBT Ally Ben Cohen Wanted Male Dance Partner On 'Strictly Come Dancing'

Rugby stud Ben Cohen continues to make us swoon from across the pond! The LGBT ally is so secure in his sexuality that he was actually hoping to get a male dance partner on the UK celebrity dance series, Strictly Come Dancing!

The Mirror reports:

Hunky Ben Cohen has ­revealed he wanted to make up Strictly Come Dancing’s first same-sex pairing.

The 16st ex-England rugby star had hoped to be paired with pro Robin Windsor, but instead got stunning blonde Kristina Rihanoff.

Married dad-of-two Ben, 34, who has posed naked for magazines, said: “I’ve no qualms dancing with a woman or a man. Kristina will be easier to pick up though.”

Proud of being a gay ­pin-up, he added: “I like to break down stereotypes.”

Robin, 33, said at last week’s National Lottery Stars awards: “He kept saying to me, ‘I hope they put me with you’, but it wasn’t to be.

“He’s amazing, the things he has done for the gay ­community. I adore him.”


We'll dance with you, Ben!! Or whatever else!!

Let's break down those stereotypes!!

That would have been amazing to see that.  I'm sure they didn't want to make too many waves.  Maybe they could pull something off if there is a group dance or the like. Go Luck Ben!

  I believe there was some people that didn't like Chaz Bono being on DWTS here in the US.  There may have even been talk if Lance Bass would dance with a guy.
