'The Boxer and The Ballroom Dancer' TV show, UK - Dec 2019 The Boxer and The Ballroom Dancer, is a British ITV documentary series featuring Love Island contestants Tommy Fury and Curtis Pritchard undertaking new challenges as they switch jobs. Professional boxer, Tommy, swaps his boxing gloves for dancing shoes as he?ll take to the floor, training with a professional dancer for a ballroom competition. And former Dancing With The Stars professional, Curtis, will be entering the boxing ring with guidance from world champion, Ricky Hatton.

Love Island alumni Curtis Pritchard and Tommy Fury are quite literally trading places as the first pictures from their new TV show The Boxer and The Ballroom Dance have been released.

The ITV2 programme will see the boxer and the ballroom dancer do a Wife Swap (kinda) – although instead of swapping partners, they’re exchanging jobs.

Professional sportsman (and younger brother of Tyson Fury lets not forget!) Tommy will be brushing up his skills on the dance floor, whilst former Dancing With The Stars’ Curtis will be preparing to enter the ring with advice from legend Ricky Hatton.

The lads seem pretty confident and care-free in the first-look pictures…why does something tell us this is going to be harder than they anticipated?

The duo, who stole the dating competition with their bromance, have the support of their girlfriends Molly-Mae Hague and Maura Higgins, who will be appearing on the show as their beaus discuss the trials and tribulations of learning a new skill.

The duo awkwardly tried to shut down speculation of their show earlier this year when chatting to Metro.co.uk on the red carpet at the Pride Of Britain Awards.

When we asked about their show, Tommy said: ‘You’ll have to stay tuned for that one,’ with a nervous giggle, while Molly added: ‘I don’t think you can talk about that.’

He grinned: ‘Oh I can’t say too much, but stay tuned for that one’, as Molly said: ‘Been busy, been busy.’

Curtis also squirmed, telling us: ‘Erm… me and Tommy, we just happened to be in the same place at the same time.

The Manchester native also caused quite a controversy when he admitted he would never allow girlfriend Molly-Mae to propose to him.

The novice boxer genuinely believes that ‘you’re not a real man’ if a man let a woman propose to him so we guess Molly doesn’t have anything to worry about.

Speaking to OK!, the 20-year-old spilled: ‘Any man who lets a woman propose is not a man. It’s obviously gone wrong somewhere. Imagine if she did that.’
