Strictly Come Dancing 2023 fans aren't known for agreeing!

Anyone who looks at social media on a Saturday evening will be bombarded with all sorts of contradictory opinions.

And let's face it, even the judges don't agree very often so it's no surprise the fans don't either.

But during this evening's results show, something very strange happened.

Just about everyone who was chatting about the show on social media, was saying the same thing - how much they LOVE professional dancer Johannes Radebe.

In fact, 'Johannes' was trending on X, formerly known as Twitter, even after the show had finished.

This week was a big one for Johannes.

In last night's show, he and his celebrity partner Annabel Croft, danced a moving couple's choice to Wings by Birdy - in a routine dedicated to Annabel's late husband Mel Coleman, who passed away earlier this year.

An emotional Annabel said Johannes had been her "rock" during Strictly so far, and said he had brought joy back to her life!

High praise indeed!

But it wasn't just his support for Annabel that won the fans' hearts this week.

Johannes also wowed the crowd with the opening number of this evening's results show.

He led the professionals in an energetic, vibrant African-Latin mash-up, choreographed by former Strictly winner, Oti Mabuse.

And the fans absolutely loved it!

"That was fabulous," said one fan. Another added: "That group dance was EVERYTHING."

"Is there anyone who doesn't just love Johannes?" said another smitten viewer. "He's such a joy!"

And some fans went even further in their praise for the professional dancer.

"Johannes is the best dancer Strictly have ever had," said one viewer. "OUTSTANDING!"

And others agreed.

"Johannes is the best dancer on Strictly," wrote another impressed viewer. "What a talent."

Fortunately for the besotted fans, Johannes and Annabel survived another week and will be dancing again.


You can watch them take to the floor when Strictly Come Dancing continues next Saturday on BBC One. Check our TV Guide for more information.
