Strictly come to dance by dancer John Radebe has fondly looked back on his time in competition with John Whaite, as he prepares to team up with a new contestant for 2022.

The 35-year-old South African dancer has made history on the show multiple times since joining the pros in 2018.

Made the first show Homosexual routine with Graziano Di Prima in 2019 before reaching the final of the competition with Great British Bake star John White in the first couple of men of the program last year.

The dynamic duo finished second behind Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice who went on to become winners.

However, despite missing out on the Glitterball Trophy, John and Johannes won the hearts of millions of viewers and have remained good friends ever since.

And as Johannes gears up for another year of Strictly madness, he reminisces about his trip with John last year, with a very sweet post on Instagram.

He wrote: ‘Now that rehearsals for Strictly have begun, I’ve been thinking back to last year when I had the pleasure of meeting @john_whaite.

“I can’t believe it’s been a year since John came into my life and what a fabulous and truly special Strictly trip we had.

“There were moments during the show that took my breath away, including the overwhelming support we received.”

He went on to thank fans for all the ‘kind comments’ and for voting for the couple during the competition, commenting, ‘It means a lot.’

Johannes started a selection of photos of the couple together and continued: “Not only is John an amazing dancer, he’s an amazing friend and I can’t imagine life without him.”

“Although my Strictly journey with John has come to an end, I am feeling the energy and magic of the show again and I look forward to the next chapter of Strictly and the excitement and challenges this will bring.

‘I can’t wait, let the adventure begin! xxx’

The post touched many fans, as well as John himself, who responded, “Damn you made me cry into my avocado toast ❤️ love you MJR x.”

It comes as John reacted earlier on Saturday to Radio 2 news and The One Show favourite. Richie Anderson would be about to follow in his footsteps in a male couple.

Juan wrote on his Instagram. stories: ‘I’m so fucking pleased that Strictly is doing a male-male pairing again this year and I hope that’s the case every year from now.

It has to be that way, added the chef. “Because queer inclusion is not a box-ticking exercise for a series, it is a fundamental shift in the narrative of life.”

He went on to thank the Strictly team for “continuing to include the marginalized.”

The 2021 finalist ended up rooting for Richie, concluding, “All love and luck to @richieanderson who is going to love every second of it.”

Strictly Come Dancing returns later this year to BBC One.
