Quarter-final Strictly Come Dancing: John Whaite DROPS partner Johannes Radebe at the end of their salsa after unfortunate mistake…
The quarterfinals of Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday started off with quite the drama when John Whaite dropped partner Johannes Radebe at the end of their Salsa.
The duo had gotten off to a good start performing an energetic routine for Sister Sledge’s We Are Family, but things ran smoothly when professional dancer Johannes John gave his wrong hand as they started the elevator.
As a result, John had to perform an awkward lift before Johannes seemed to slip out of his grasp and land heavily on the ground.

Despite his usual sour comments, Craig Revel Horwood admitted that he “loves it when things go wrong!”
The show comes as Motsi Mabuse returned to the jury after being forced to take a week off after being pinged by NHS Test and Trace.
The professional dancer, 40, explained that although she has been shot three times, she is currently in Germany and cannot travel back due to guidelines from the British government, which do not recognize the vaccines she has been given.
The news of Motsi comes a week after Craig Revel Horwood was forced to withdraw from the previous week’s show after testing positive for Covid-19.
Oh no, the duo had gotten off to a good start performing an energetic routine for Sister Sledge’s We Are Family, but things took a turn for the worse when professional dancer Johannes John gave his wrong hand as they started the elevator.
On Friday on her Twitter page, Motsi wrote: ‘I am gutted to say I have to miss this weekend on Strictly… yesterday I was approached by NHS Test and Trace for being in close contact with someone on Sunday 21st November which has already tested positive.
‘Being double vaccinated and booster like me would normally mean exemption from isolation under the ‘close contact’ rules, but unfortunately German EU vaccinations are not recognized and neither is my booster in this case.
“So I have to follow the UK government’s guidelines and can’t return to the UK until after 30 November 2021. Our health is the most important thing and luckily I have been tested several times this week and negative.

‘I’m healthy, I’m with my family, that’s what matters! I wish everyone good luck and send you my love. Keep dancing. Until then, lots of love and stay safe xx.’
The government website states that the EU Digital Covid Certificate (EUDCC) is not recognized as proof of vaccination for passengers traveling to the UK.
A spokesperson for the show then confirmed that guest judge Cynthia Erivo – who looked after Craig last week – would return to take Moti’s place.
