Strictly Come Dancing fans left floored by John’s Whaite’s pal’s ‘wet’ comment

Strictly fans were left shocked by a comment made by John Waite's pal who watched his performance with partner Johannes Radebe.

The Great British Bake Off star took to the floor once more on Saturday evening and had a friend of his watch in the audience.

After the couple's performance, hosts Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly interviewed one of John's friends, Shirley, who had been a dinner lady at his school.

Shirley began: "Oh my God, it was so amazing!"

She then said: "Jeez, Woah, I'm wet…"

Shirley quickly added, to much hilarity as the audience fell silent: "…with the sweat!"

John and Johannes had danced the Charleston to Milord by Edith Piaf and ended their routine with John pushing a pie into his dance partner's face.

This comes after Strictly fans were divided after it was announced that Bruno Tonioli will take over judging duties from Anton Du Beke on the live tour.

Bruno couldn't take up his seat on the judging panel for the current series of the BBC ballroom contest, because Covid restrictions would have made it too challenging for him to do both Strictly and US show Dancing With The Stars.

Anton has been filling in and has been a big hit with viewers who are loving his kind critiques.

And many are now saying they think he should be able to hit the road for the 2022 tour alongside Shirley Ballas and Craig Revel Horwood.

"Am I the only one that thinks it's a travesty that Bruno Tonioli is coming back to judge the @SCD2021UK arena tour and replace Anton De Beke?" one viewer tweeted.

"I consider it unfair that Anton has been replaced by Bruno on the tour. Bruno chose DWTS," said another.

One pleaded: "Keep Anton all the time now; Bruno was getting so boringly predictable."

"PLEASE DON'T bring Bruno back," posted another. "He just shouts and flails around. Anton is SO much better. You'll ruin it."

One said while they didn't have anything against Bruno they "wouldn't be sad if Anton's place among the judges was permanent".

"He is a joy – knowledgeable and kind at the same time," added the viewer.
