Graziano Di Prima has reportedly been picked to be the professional half of Strictly Come Dancing's first male-male couple this year.
"The bosses are thrilled that Strictly will be able to show its first all-male couple this year," a source told the newspaper.
"They have their sights firmly on Graziano. There is no reason why a gay celebrity should automatically be paired with a gay dancer."
The newspaper also claims that chat show host Alan Carr and Olympic diver Tom Daley - currently competing for Team GB at the Tokyo Olympics - are among the male celebrities to have been approached about being part of the pairing.
The new series of Strictly begins on BBC One at the end of September.
