Boxer Nicola Adams to be first female contestant not to wear a dress on Strictly

BOXER Nicola Adams will be the first female contestant not to wear a dress on Strictly.

The Olympic gold medallist, 37, has asked to take to the dancefloor in trouser suits when she stars in the show’s first same-sex couple.

A source said: “Anyone who knows Nicola will be aware that her wardrobe consists of jeans and trousers so it would be really unnatural for her to wear a dress.

"As far as the Strictly bosses are concerned, it’s a personal choice and they want her to feel comfortable taking part.

“The costume department is famous for pulling out all the stops and thinking outside the box.

“They’ve got lots of ideas for themes and will be sure to incorporate some sparkle into her trouser suits.

“Nicola knows sequins come as part of the Strictly package.

"She is more than grateful that the producers are making her feel relaxed.”

Nicola, who is dating model Ella Baig, 22, revealed earlier this month that she insisted on being paired with a female pro.

She said: “They wanted to know if I wanted to be on the show and I said, ‘Yeah, I’ll do it, but I want to dance with another female.’

“It’s really important, and it’s a big step for the show as well.  

“It’s nice to see that we’re able to move on.

"I just can’t wait to get some dancing done.”
