Strictly Come Dancing professional Johannes Radebe took to Instagram on Thursday to declare his love for John Whaite.
Johannes has flown home to his native South Africa to ring in the new year, and finally got round to watching the Strictly final.
He and 32-year-old John were the runners-up of this year’s competition after Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice won the series, but they certainly left their mark.
Posting a video of their final dance on the BBC show, Johannes wrote alongside it: “SOME PEOPLE ARRIVE AND MAKE SUCH A BEAUTIFUL IMPACT ON YOUR LIFE, YOU CAN BARELY REMEMBER WHAT LIFE WAS LIKE WITHOUT THEM.
“I managed to watch the finale of strictly with my family and friends back home in South Africa, it was lit!
“@john_whaite they are desperate to meet you hun’. The pride reflected on their faces for everything we’ve accomplished is heart-warming.”
He continued: “@bbcstrictly delivers an awesome show every year but this season has been nothing short of revolutionary and to EVERYONE involved THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.
“The aim has always been to inspire…Representation of any minority group in media acknowledges their existence in the real world, influencing societies openness and understanding of others which makes for a better world for all.
“Thanks to everyone who tuned in every weekend, supporting and cheering for great Saturday entertainment aimed at bringing audiences some sparkle, joy and escapism.
“Have a beautiful crossover into 2022. I’ll see you soon. Love Jo,” he added.
John was quick to comment on the sweet post and said: “Love you Johannes. Can’t wait to see you,” followed by a red heart emoji.
