They're the only two single celebrity men on the show. And that has made things competitive

When the line up was released for this year’s Strictly, we know we’re the only ones who thought one thing: This year’s contestants are HOT.

Yes, there’s a bunch of beautiful women but there are also some super sexy men to feast our eyes on every week.

And two that really stand out as Strictly‘s sexiest are Simon Webbe and Thom Evans. Oof! We know…

But if their recent interviews are anything to go by, the lads don’t seem too happy sharing the title.

Nope, they’re battling it out to be Strictly 2014’s ultimate sexiest.

In a recent interview chatting about his rumoured romance with dance partner Iveta Lukosiute, Thom Evans said: ‘I have no idea why people are so interested in my love life! I think because we’re both single and I’m the only single person on the show there’s always going to be speculation.’

Errrr, HOLD UP RIGHT THERE JUST ONE SECOND!

What about single Simon? We’re pretty sure he’s on the market too, Thom.

From this comment, we’re taking it that either 1) Simon Webbe has a secret girlfriend that we definitely need to know all about immediately. Or 2) Thom really wants to be number one Strictly bachelor.

Although we kinda want it to be the first (everyone loves a secret romance) it’s probably the second.

Meanwhile, Simon is busy sparking romance rumours by performaing rumbas with partner Kristina Rihanoff that are so sexy, he’s had to apologise due to public backlash.

‘It’s a rumba, it’s one of the most sexual dances that there is,’ said Simon. ‘I was just concentrating on the moves. Sorry if it offended anyone. For me, I thought the choreography was amazing.’

Erm, it wasn’t the choreography we were watching to be honest, Si.

Well, we seriously can’t decide who’s sexier – but we’re loving watching them battle it out.

Keep on fighting lads. And maybe take your tops off while you’re at it…
