John Whaite could be set for a stage role after his success on the latest series of Strictly Come Dancing.

The Great British Bake Off winner is currently competing in the BBC favourite with pro dancer partner Johannes Radebe – the first all-male pairing in the show’s history – and is said to have impressed theatre producers with his dancing ability.

A TV source told The Sun: ‘It’s not just his moves on Strictly that have caught the attention of directors, it’s also the charisma and confidence he’s shown as he finds himself in the spotlight.’

They added that he’s tackled being in the show’s first male same-sex partnership with aplomb as ‘far from being a shrinking violet he’s been a shining star’.

‘Plus he’s been posting videos where he’s singing and playing the guitar, making him a ‘triple threat’ in the West End,’ they added.

If he could pick a musical to tread the boards, the culinary star would pick Rent, the rock musical set in 1980s New York amid the AIDS crisis.

John explained: ‘It’s my favourite musical because it’s about liberation, about not going with the tide, living a bohemian lifestyle and not letting people walk all over you. Ultimately, it’s about love, no matter who or what you are.’

Rent composer Jonathan Larson is the subject of new Netflix film tick, tick… BOOM!, starring Andrew Garfield and directed by Lin-Manuel Miranda, and based on an autobiographical musical of the creator from before he wrote Rent.

John and Johannes are set to take on another round of Strictly this Saturday in the aptly timed Musicals Week.

The pair will be dressed as chimney sweeps in homage to the character made famous by Dick van Dyke in Mary Poppins and will perform a Viennese Waltz to the timeless song Chim Chim Cher-ee.

Last week saw the competing couple score 38 points for their Samba.
