Strictly Come Dancing: John Whaite And Johannes Radebe's Tango Gets The Thumbs Up From Viewers

4 2 3

John Whaite and Johannes Radebe made their long-awaited debut on the Strictly Come Dancing floor during Saturday night’s show… and didn’t they do an excellent job?

The Great British Bake Off winner and his professional partner are the first pairing made up of two male dancers to ever compete in the long-running BBC series.

During Saturday night’s live show, they delivered their first routine of the new season, performing an intense Tango to Blue Monday by New Order.

The two took to the floor in matching black tuxedos, and won over the judges, who gave them an impressive 30 points of a possible 40.

John and Johannes’ score put them in joint second place on the leaderboard on the night, alongside Olympian Adam Peaty and his partner Katya Jones.

The pair also received glowing reviews from those watching along on social media:

Just stunning, chills

Obviously very glad and grateful this has happened now, but think of all the dances like this we’ve missed over the years, the show didn’t implode, hellfire did not rain down, it really was that simple https://t.co/E4fnYUGx0l
