This was the first same-sex kiss in the show’s seven season run.
CBBC series The Next Step has just aired its first-ever same-sex kiss, in a beautiful and moving scene. The Next Step is a Canadian mockumentary series which follows a dance troupe as they prepare for competitions.
In the show’s latest episode, Room Service, which aired on Wednesday (22 July), dancers Cleo and Jude, played by Dani Verayo and Molly Sanders respectively, were preparing to perform in their duet. Before their routine, the characters had a heart-to-heart discussion, which, after some flirting, led to the kiss.
In monologues before the kiss, Jude said: “When I dance with Cleo, I forget about everything. It’s just her. We’re dancing together and all I see is her.” Cleo adds onto that, saying: “When I dance with Jude, I feel safe and free all at the same time. When we dance together, it’s like magic.”
You can watch the touching scene either here, or below.
