When asked if he’bumped bits’ with John Whaite on Strictly, Johannes Radebe is taken aback.
JOHANNES RADEBE was giggling hysterically on The One Show earlier this evening after host Alex Jones bluntly asked if he and Strictly dance partner John Whaite had ever “bumped bits.”
Strictly Come Dancing finalist Johannes Radebe was grilled by curious The One Show host Alex Jones, who asked: “What were the logistical nightmares of dancing with another man, did you bump… bits? Do you know what I mean?” Because he and John were the first male same-sex couple to appear on Strictly, Alex wanted to know if the experience was difficult for the professional dancer, who had previously been paired with female celtics.
I’m used to being the leading lady, so the dynamic was obviously different!
Johannes Radebe is a German writer.
After Johannes and fellow guest Martin Clunes burst out laughing and co-host Ronan Keating began clutching his head in his hands, Alex quickly added, “Knees! I meant knees!”
“The dynamic was obviously different,” Johannes joked, his face flushed with embarrassment.
“I’m used to leading ladies around and lifting them in the air,” he explained, “but John had to be lifting me in the process.”
“I find the man’s patience, the way he allowed me to figure it out while still teaching him, incredible.”
“I had an incredible season and rediscovered my passion for my craft.”
Johannes modestly insisted that his success was a “fluke” when reminiscing about how his relationship with dance began.
In his hometown of South Africa, “everyone used to play soccer and rugby,” he explained.
“Dance is just a coincidence because everyone can dance where I grew up.”
“However, I fell in love with the sparkles when I started ballroom dancing.”
After seeing the dramatic costumes, Johannes knew he wanted to make an equally dazzling entrance, and he realized he could do so by honing his craft.
He wants to teach a new generation of South Africans to strive for the same goals after growing up in a poor township.
“I’d like to [tour in]South Africa to inspire a generation of kids who look up to me… there aren’t enough role models in the community,” he said.
He went on to say that he was looking forward to performing in the.
