Strictly's John Whaite fuels romance rumours as he admits his 'focus' is on Johannas as dance partner confesses his love

STICTLY star John Whaite has fuelled romance rumours after admitting that his "focus" is on Johannas Radebe.

The Great British Bake Off winner, 32, opened up about their partnership, while pro dancer Johannas confessed his "love" for the chef.


After wowing the judges with their American Smooth last night, the pair made it through to next week and shared how relieved they were with co-host Claudia Winkleman.

Speaking about what it felt like to wait for the results, he said: "It was horrific! That's part of the process, we're all in this together, we all feel the same anxiety and nerves."

Standing next to South African dancer Johannas, John continued: "At least I have this strapping young man next to me."

Claudia then quizzed the duo on their partnership, she asked: "You can see that on Saturday, the way you look after each other when you're training."

"We do! From day one we said it's just me and him and that's it," John explained.

"Regardless of what's going on in the world and the competition, when we're in that dance room we just focus on each other."

Johannas nodded in agreement and replied: "Thank you baby."

Claudia then asked what it was like to have a partner who enjoys constructive criticism.

Johannas praised John for his commitment and said that he "loves" his fellow partner.

The Strictly pro added: "It's a pair made in heaven, it's true, we really compliment each other.

"And I love John for that, he listens."

The pair shared a sweet embrace as John pulled Johannas closer for a hug and said: "Come here, you big soppy."

The sweet moment sent fans wild with many speculating a romance between the two.

One wrote: "I would LOVE it if these two fell in love. Such a beautiful dancers and the most amazing personalities. A whole lotta love for Johannas and John. #Strictly"

Another wrote: "I hope John and Johannas do an openly gorgeous romantic dance next week. They're SO good, imagine how well they'd do romance. #Strictly"

"I'm a little upset that John as a partner. He and Johannas would make a great couple. I want a #Strictly romance"

Last month, Strictly fans rejoiced as John and Johannes made show history as the first same-sex male pairing.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: "John and Johannes is EVERYTHING."

Another added: "Honestly love that John and Johannes have been partnered together."

A third tweeted: "YES JOHN AND JOHANNES this pairing is PERFECT."
