Strictly Come Dancing is about to return for its next series, but this time there will be a distinct difference. No Brucie. The show will be presented by Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman. I had not realised until reading an article in the Radio Times that this was going to be the first time for there ever to be an all female duo team presenting on television (apart for the times when Claudia stood in for Bruce Forsyth temporarily). I was actually quite shocked that it has taken this long. Do you think it is about time, and why do you think it has never happened before? Are you looking forward to Tess and Claudia co-presenting the entire series together?

We do not have that here though we do have similar.
They have panels with both male and female judges on it though generally 3 or 4.

I cannot see what difference it would make what sex someone judging can make.

Hi Finy

I'm not talking about the judges. We have both male and female judges for our version, just like Dancing With The Stars. I'm talking about the hosts - the presenters who introduce the show and those taking part.
oh sorry Bryony -but i still think it makes no difference what sex the PRESENTERS are!

I was really surprised when I found out that this would be the first female duo. I had never really given it much thought before because the gender of the host was never something that I considered that important. The fact that there was reluctance at first to put the two together (male/female alternatives were considered), does however highlight that this is still an issue in the industry.
