Viewers were once again left in tears after another dance by Strictly Come Dancing’s first-ever same-sex couple, John Whaite and Johannes Radebe. For their semi-final dance, the Couple’s Choice, the partners performed to Adele’s Hometown Glory.
Whaite told the audience that the pair dedicated their performance,
“to the people who perhaps feel a bit afraid in life. I want those people to know that it gets better.”
The Great British Bake Off winner continued, explained how he was outed by a teacher when he was just 14 years old,
“It reminds me of how much we needed that where we were little and it was never there. I grew up with a great deal of shame and I think if I’d seen two men dancing together it would have changed my life.”

I think John and Johannes just created a moment that will live on in history. What an incredible moment. So emotional. They HAVE to be in the final. #Strictly
