WATCH: Shirtless Ben Cohen Does The Paso Doble on Strictly Come Dancing – Video

Big, buff and beefy Ben Cohen and whats-her-name (Kristina Rihanoff) danced the Paso Doble to ‘Supermassive Black Hole’ in a Strictly Come Dancing Halloween special.

Oh yeah and as a Halloween TREAT Ben did it without a shirt.

Strictly Come Dancing contestant Ben Cohen caused quite a stir on the Strictly dance floor after he shed his shirt to perform the Paso Doble. The rugby ace had previously made an impact when he stripped to a vest to perform the salsa with partner Kristina Rihanoff – but took thinks one step further with Saturday’s semi-clad performance. And unsurprisingly viewers flocked to Twitter to give the performance a resounding thumbs-up. ‘Ben Cohen becoming my fav #strictly contestant! Nothing to go with being topless…..much!’ tweeted one viewer, while another said: ‘Ben Cohen 10/10 for just existing.’ Another added: ‘In my humble opinion, Ben Cohen’s dance tonight just wasn’t long enough’, while a fellow fan tweeted: ‘Ben Cohen with no top on is all Strictly needs.’

I’ve watched it three times and my eyes can’t make it to the bottom of the screen to judge his footwork.

Ben Cohen gay sex

Super hot rugby stud and straight LGBT rights ally Ben Cohen in an interview with the UK’s Daily Mirror said that he would have loved to be part of Strictly Come Dancing, the UK’s version of Dancing With The Stars first same-sex dancing couple and was hoping to be paired up with gay Latin and Ballroom dance pro Robin Windsor.

UK’s Mirror reports:

“I’ve no qualms dancing with a woman or a man. Kristina will be easier to pick up though…I like to break down stereotypes.”

Said Windsor: “He kept saying to me, ‘I hope they put me with you’ … He’s amazing, the things he has done for the gay ­community. I adore him.”

We ALL adore Ben.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go take a very cold shower.
