The TV medic mentioned: “We are making progress but I think there is still some way to go. It does take time, though we are heading in the right direction.”

Strictly bosses have said they have ‘no plans’ to change the traditional pairings on this year’s show.

A spokesperson told the Mail on Sunday: “Strictly has chosen the long-standing ballroom dancing format of mixed-sex couples and at the moment we have no plans to introduce same-sex couples.”

Ranj told press at Attitude 300 exhibition at London’s Hospital Club: “I love dancing as a social thing.

“I have been brought up in an Indian family so we dance at everything. I would love it if they did a Bollywood week. I would be in my element.

“It is a great Strictly line-up. Everyone wants to do the show, it is the nation’s favourite, so I am pinching myself.”
