Strictly Come Dancing set to secure first all-male couple with Westlife’s Mark Feehily
STRICTLY Come Dancing is on the cusp of securing its first ever all-male couple after embarking on last-minute talks with Westlife’s Mark Feehily.
The Irish star, who came out in 2005, is being lined up to dance with a male pro if contracts can be secured in time.
The singer – who has a daughter with his finance Kevin McDaid – was approached last year but turned it down because Westlife were due to tour.
However, the ongoing pandemic has meant all tour dates are postponed – and he is now able to take part.
A production source said: “Mark is a massive fan of Strictly, and the boys actually performed on the show last year.
“When he was first asked, he reluctantly had to decline because of the tour, but now that that’s off, he’s free to compete.
“Nearly all the celebs are now signed up, but the Beeb are really keen to make this work and get him on board last minute.”
The plan would be to pair him with gay pro, South African Johannes Radebe.
