  1. What about letting two guys be partners on Strictly Come Dancing? (or two women for that matter)

  2. Will he dance with a man, though?

  3. is there anything he wont do? Must be desperate for the money I guess

    1. Why wouldn’t he do it for fun? Heard of that? I doubt that he is short of money.

    2. And so what if he’s doing it for the money? I guess you go to work for free?

    3. I imagine they all are.

  4. I like Gareth Thomas and have a lot of respect for him, but is he on a mission to be on every reality show going?

    He’s done CBB, now this. Hasn’t he done I’m a celebrity already? If so, all he needs to do will be Strictly then he will have completed a full house.

    Gareth, please stop lowering yourself.

    I’m not too sure about this. Those sequined spandex tops the contestants wear just don’t sit right with my image of Gareth Thomas.

    Best of luck to him though.

  6. Perhaps as an openly gay man and role model, he wants to be seen by as many people as possible? Visibility of gay people is really important for equality…we sometimes forget this in our ghettos..

    Don’t normally watch this programme but as the gorgeous hunk Gareth is going to be on it I will give it a go……and there’s also Shayne Ward to drool over too

  8. Oh , that’s him who cheated on his wife and was hailed a hero in return !

    1. Keith Chegwin?

  9. He and Chegwin are too old for this type of show.

  10. I agree with ray everyone suddenly forgets what he put his ex wife through. I can understand ‘bring in the closet’ ie not disclosing your sexuality as a pro athlete but dragging an unwilling participant into your sham is just a disgrace.

    1. No Gay people would be in dishonest marriages if society had a healthier attitude to GLBT people. He was a victim too.

  11. Anthea Turner? Oh, for God sake!!!
