Adams dancing on Strictly with a woman.
Men dancing with men too I see. How will it work in terms of who leads? Such a shame she had to retire early but she did the right thing, a great talent in the ring, I don't watch dancing but I wish her well.

She should have just sent the celebrity route to begin with. Her heart never seemed in the pro game, and she's perfect for all this celebrity guff.

My Mrs and her family like strictly, so no doubt I will end up seeing some of it.

Couldn't care less about who dances with whom. Ballroom dancing already rates pretty high on the gaydar so it shouldn't be an issue.

Only problem I really see is when they lift each other. Men are usually bigger, heavier, and stronger, so it's easier for a man to lift a woman than two people of the same gender to lift each other.

Just saw josh Taylor at an outdoor activity place in Dunbar, Scotland . Looks like he might have been on a photo shoot, one of the guys with him had a big camera.

This cry and shed tears . Is so high school. Michelle is channelling the teenage Michelle.

What kind of abuse does she get? I don't watch her stuff and I don't have twitter.

Is this just because folk are making fun of her laugh? I think her laugh is funny, she should just have a sense of humour about it.

On a side note, she's looking better there than I remember her looking. Got a JLo vibe going on.

I have no clue just came across that post on Conor Benns social media. That girl that presents boxing on Sky gets far worse. Dan Rafael gets the fat jokes a dime a dozen.

The way social media gets to people is so hilarious. Its just an app on your phone.

I thought it was going to be all same sex dance couples but I just saw a snapshot of the programme and most paricipants seem to be man/woman couples so it's got me wondering why Nicola couldn't dance with a man, I mean it's not a dating show is it?

No idea. I would imagine a lot of the dancers are gay, at least the males ones, and they all dance with the opposite sex.

But if she prefers a woman I see no issue with it, and it will draw attention for the show.

Only issue I can see is that how do you judge it? Normally they have set rules for men and women in dancing for positioning and stuff. Will one of them be the man?

Doesn't really matter though I suppose. It's just a bit of fun.

Right, who cares we got a massive weekend of boxing starting in 90 minutes' time!
