Israel's version had their first same sex couple take to the dance floor way back in 2010 so it's no surprise fans are raising questions.

One fan of the show tweeted Strictly Come Dancing professional Kevin Clifton asking his thoughts on the matter and he gave a fantastic response. 

He said in his reply: "Just to be clear I'm not involved in any of these decisions. But if that’s what they wanted then i’d have no problem with it."

The majority of his followers were thrilled with his response and one praised him saying: "It is fantastic to know that you would be open to the idea and would welcome it. You Are Awesome Kev!".

In the world of professional ballroom dancing , there are often same sex couples dance categories at high level competitions. Many dancers also train in same sex couple partners.

Do you think the BBC should make this change happen?
