Strictly Come Dancing saw John Whaite and partner Johannes Radebe receive a standing ovation from everyone in the studio after their history making first performance.

However, there was one element that didn’t have the Bake Off winner head over heels at first glance.

During Monday’s edition of Steph’s Packed Lunch the 32-year-old chef, who was joined by Johannes, 34, told Steph what he thought when he first laid eyes on his outfit – a sleek black suit and tie.

Chatting to Steph McGovern he shared: ‘When we first got the outfits I was a bit gutted because I’d been working on my hot body for 18 months, and I was thinking I don’t want to be head to toe in black.

‘I want to be Adam Peaty with my boobs out, but when I watched the dance back I appreciated the kind of majesty.’

After fans watched their tango, which resulted in them placing second on the leaderboard, the pair have received an overwhelming amount of support from fans.

Johannes said: ‘It feels amazing.’

He added: ‘John on Saturday was absolutely incredible, but that moment for both of us meant a whole lot. I know a lot of people resonated with it, we’re here for it.’

They ended the night in joint second place with Adam Peaty and Katya, but were pipped to the post by AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington, who scored 34.

The pair are now busy working on their second routine, which John teased to host Steph.

He said: ‘I’ve got three days in the studio this week to learn a dance and it’s really fast…I’m actually feeling quite scared now, I’ve come back down to earth.’

Bring on Saturday!

Steph’s Packed Lunch airs weekdays at 12.30pm on Channel 4.
