The duo will dance for six weeks on the new series, which airs on BBC One. The show’s host Tess Daly said of their partnership: ‘John and Johannes are two very talented dancers who know how to steal a stage.’
John Whaite is a professional ballroom dancer who was born in England. He has been dancing for over 25 years and started his career at the age of 16. John says that he feels “so lucky” to dance with Johannes.

After his Argentine Tango with Johannes Radebe on Saturday night delighted both fans and the judging panel, Strictly Come Dancing star John Whaite wrote a nice note on his Instagram page.
After being picked by the bookies early on, John and Johannes remain one of the favorites to win the championship.
The duo is the show’s first all-male partnership, and their most recent dance included the famously difficult Argentine Tango, which got a lot of attention.
They got three tens and were only a whisker away from a perfect score when Craig Revel Horwood judged it was slightly short.
Despite Craig’s age, he offered the couple some very moving commentary, describing how ‘wonderful’ it was to witness the dance performed in its original form, with two men trapped in symbolic deadly fight.
After the craziness of Saturday night calmed down, John shared a photo from the couple’s Sunday dance on his Instagram page, along with a lovely message.
Following their dance, the judges complimented John and Johannes (Picture: )
‘I still feel so happy to live in a society where I can dance with another guy on Saturday night television and have it be so unequivocally accepted; where it’s all about the dance and the steps we take for the 90 seconds we’re on stage,’ he captioned it.
‘A special thanks to the @londontangoacademy’s @maria tsiatsiani official, @leandropalou1 and @leodicocco for teaching @johannesradebe and myself how to dance a beautiful, classic Argentine Tango.
Thank you for entrusting us with your work and for sharing it with us. Working with you has been an honor and a pleasure,’ he added.
Many of John’s friends and admirers went to the comments section, with many of his fellow Strictly Come Dancing contestants giving their support under the post.
‘Such a STUNNING performance,’ AJ Odudu remarked, while Karen Hauer added, ‘All the love.’
‘Absolutely brilliant,’ said It’s A Sin showrunner Russell T Davies, while Years & Years vocalist Olly Alexander said, ‘You were both great!!!’

‘We’ve found ourselves again this week,’ John said presenter Claudia Winkleman, referring to the great feedback they got for their Saturday act. We agreed that it’s just you and me, and nothing else counts.’
They were also treated to an appearance by Mary Berry, the national treasure who helped John win the Great British Bake Off in 2013.
Tonight at 7.20 p.m. on One, Strictly Come Dancing resumes.
