City TV channel, Made in Tyne and Wear is welcoming same-sex couples to apply to take part in a new dance competition to be shown this October.
MADE on the Dancefloor will see five couples compete to be crowned the MADE On The Dancefloor Champion following eight weeks of training and competitions shown each week on the channel’s popular magazine show, The Lowdown.
Station Manager, Tony Hazell said: “Despite reluctance from other TV stations, Made in Tyne and Wear is proud to offer the opportunity to all sectors of the community to take part in our new dance competition.
