Layton Williams seemed content with his Strictly Come Dancing partner as he teased followers on social media, keeping them speculating who it could be.
The 28-year-old artist has announced that he will be foxtrotting with a partner of the same sex in the forthcoming season of the BBC ballroom dance competition programme this fall.
In the run-up to his appearance on the show, the West End performer turned to Instagram to tease who he would be fighting against for the Glitterball trophy.
On Sunday, Layton uploaded a video of his reaction that carried a caption saying: ‘Me, minutes before I met my Strictly pro!’
In the clip, he can be seen beaming back at the camera and making faces to an accompanying soundtrack that said: ‘This is because you genuinely don’t know which is great. It’s going to be a genuine surprise.’
Layton shared the video that he ended by blowing an overwhelmed raspberry at the camera with another caption, penning: ‘Happy to say, I’m HAPPY!’

Fans flocked to the comments section to give their opinions on the star’s future season, wishing him luck and speculating on who it may be.
One said: ‘I would so love this to be Graz,’ while another typed: ‘Hoping it’s the one and only @vitocoppola – although you’re gonna slay regardless of who it is .. we will be cheering (and voting when the time comes) do t you worry’.
‘Can’t wait to find out, I hope it’s Johannes,’ a separate social media account said in response to the star’s teaser footage.
Last month, the Everybody’s Talking About Jamie actor stated on Twitter that he will be collaborating with a male.
He shared a message to his fans at the time that read: ‘I’m 100% gonna be paired up with a man’ followed by a string of dancing emojis.
Explaining in August that he still had no idea who he would be dancing with, he added to his tweet: ‘Ps – I don’t know who my partner is lol and even if I did it’s giving [lips sealed emoji].
‘We genuinely don’t know until that very moment in screen. Wild right?! X’
Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One and iPlayer later this month.
