In an upcoming episode, straight characters Puck and Finn will be swapping roles with Glee’s most famous gay couple Kurt and Blaine.

Reported by TVLine, Puck (Mark Salling) and Finn (Cory Monteith) will play the gay couple on the musical comedy programme, a show that has explored teenage pregnancy, homophobia and transgender issues.

Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) will allegedly suffer a head injury and imagine a world where her New Direction classmates swap bodies.

The body-swap plot will appear during a special two-hour episode on May 15 after Fox decided to air the 20th and 21st episodes of Glee in one evening.

The reported plot fits with recent spoiler pictures where Puck is seen dressed in Blaine’s signature bow-tie and V-neck sweater and Finn is wearing Kurt’s favourite accessory – a fashionable cape.

Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly has said Glee could lead kids to experiment with being gay or transgender.

‘If you make the behaviour of these people ... if children hear it, unsupervised children, okay who don’t have parents watching -- they might go out and experiment with this stuff,' O'Reilly said on Thursday's (19 April) episode of The O'Reilly Factor.

It was announced in early April Glee would be renewed for a fourth season.
