Strictly 2021: Johannes Radebe mortified as he’s thrown to ground after routine goes badly wrong

They laughed it off! (Picture: BBC)

Strictly Come Dancing is in its quarter finals, and John Whaite and Johannes Radebe pulled out a dazzling performance to We Are Family.

The couple brought the party with their salsa tonight, but pro dancer Johannes was left mortified when their big lift at the end went wrong.

As the pair walked over to the judges to collect their scores, Johannes could be heard apologising to baker John.

When Tess asked why he was saying sorry, he replied in a sad tone: ‘I gave him the wrong hand!’

It seemed he was referring to the couple’s lift for their big finish, where John threw his partner in the air and spun around in a circle.

However, things went a bit pear shaped, leaving John with no choice but to throw Johannes down onto the floor because of the way he picked him up.

After his other half hit the ground with a thud, John smacked Johannes’ bottom in jest.

The mistake didn’t dampen their spirits, though, as they finished the performance with beaming smiles and had their fellow contestants and their partners on their feet, clapping and cheering.

They also pulled out plenty of other show-stopping lifts with feel-good, fast-paced choreography.

John and Johannes joked with Claudia Winkleman afterwards that they started the week with alter egos BeJohncé and Jakira, before realising that they didn’t need character names.

‘I am John and I can do that,’ he said proudly.

The judges loved their sparkling performance too, with even Mr Nasty Craig Revel Horwood in fits of laughter saying: ‘I love it when it goes wrong!’

Taking to his Instagram story after the show, John filmed the pair watching their failed lift back, with Johannes in stitches saying: ‘I look like a sack of potatoes!’

He later posted a video of how the lift should have looked, which ended with Johannes rolling gracefully out of John’s arms, although, we think what actually happened was far more iconic.

The duo scored 32 points, with a 7 from Craig, 8s from Motsi Mabuse and Shirley Ballas, and a 9 from Anton Du Beke.

They’ll be hoping they’ve done enough to continue living out their dream and head through to the semi final next week.

Strictly Come Dancing: The Results air tomorrow night at 7:20pm on BBC One.
