John Whaite e Johannes Radebe são aplaudidos de pé pela dança do mesmo sexo do Strictly
Former ‘Great British Bake Off’ winner made history as half of the show’s first male same-sex couple

Chef and TV personality John Whaite received a standing ovation after making his Estritamente debut with his professional dance partner, Johannes Radebe.

The 33-year-old made history with Radebe as the first same-sex male couple to appear in the competition, após Nicola Adams e Katya Jones danced together in the last series.

Whaite and Radebe made their debut dancing to a rendition of “Blue Monday”, and received rousing applause as they concluded their routine.

The judges were also full of praise, with the notoriously hard-to-please Craig Revel-Horwood saying he had “loved it”.

Whaite received the highest scores of the night at the time of writing, including 8s from Shirley Ballas and Anton Du Beke, which placed him at the top of the leaderboard.

Du Beke called the dance “tremendous”.

Whaite had previously said he was excited to dance with another man as “a great step forward in representation and inclusion”.

“Eu uso lantejoulas e roupas jazzísticas desde que tinha três anos de idade e mal posso esperar para me vomitar, aceleração total, em torno da pista de dança mais glamorosa do planeta," ele disse. “Quem quer que seja com quem estou emparelhado, Espero que eles estejam prontos para um desafio, pois quero que nossas rotinas incluam muitos levantamentos espetaculares!”
