Strictly Come Dancing fans are left in tears over Johannes Radebe's waltz with Kai Widdrington

Strictly Come Dancing fans were left in tears over Johannes Radebe and Kai Widdrington’s waltz on Saturday’s  episode.

The professional dancers opened Movie Week with a Bridgerton-style waltz while surrounded by their fellow pros.

The love story of the performance saw Johannes portray a young king with no one to dance with before Kai stepped in to waltz him around the dancefloor.

Craig said in his feedback: ‘I didn’t write a thing down, wow that was seriously hot!’, while Anton was speechless when host Tess Daly asked him to comment. 

John and Johannes are the second same-sex couple to take part in Strictly following boxer Nicola Adams and her pro partner Katya Jones last year.

However, things didn’t end well for Nicola and Katya as they were forced to withdraw from the competition early after Katya tested positive for Covid-19.
