Strictly Come Dancing finalist Johannes Radebe was put on the spot with some personal questions from curious The One Show host Alex Jones, who questioned: “What were the logistical nightmares of dancing with another man, did you bump… bits? Do you know what I mean?” As he and John were the first ever male same-sex couple to appear on Strictly, Alex wanted to know whether the experience was challenging for the professional dancer, who was previously paired with female celebrities on the show.
Alex quickly added: “Knees! I meant knees!” after Johannes and fellow guest Martin Clunes broke into uncontrollable laughter and co-host Ronan Keating began clasping his head in his hands.
Grinning with embarrassment, Johannes gamely elaborated: “The dynamic was obviously different.
“I’m used to leading ladies and lifting them in the air [but] John had to be lifting me in the process,” he replied.
“That was tricky, but the man’s patience, the way he allowed me to figure it out and still teach him in the process, I find that incredible.”

He added that he was also looking forward to performing in the smaller towns in the UK once his tour kicks off later in the year.
Johannes then shared that his mum “would [have given] me all her salary if she could” if it meant it could help him to stay “off the streets” and reach his showbiz goals.
Meanwhile, after the topic turned to ice baths and cold water swimming, Johannes revealed that he was a fan for “health” boosting reasons.
Poor Ronan Keating, on the other hand, who was uninitiated in the tradition until the filming of the show, was captured on camera shivering desperately in an ice bath while answering a quiz question incorrectly.
