Strictly Come Dancing’s John Whaite getting tattoo tribute to the show – Digital Spy

Posted in Tattoo Training on Oct 08, 2021

Strictly Come Dancing's John Whaite is still riding high on his weekend performance with Johannes Radebe so much so, he's getting a tattoo.

John, who brought joy to the dancefloor with his Cha Cha on Saturday night (October 2), confirmed his sweet tribute to the competition while chatting to Janette Manrara on It Takes Two.

Reflecting on his and Johannes' dance to 'Starstruck' by Years & Years, John admitted that he had "the best night".

Recalling a joke he made after the performance about getting a tattoo, he added: "Even though we did our little gag, I am definitely going to get one of those planets tattooed on me, because that night I felt like I'd been born. Honestly!"

John went on to reveal that the Cha Cha had given him renewed self-confidence. "All my life I've had that voice saying, 'Don't be too flamboyant, don't be too camp'," he said.

"And then we went and we were camp and we were flamboyant. So I have to get a tattoo."

Next up for John and Johannes is a Paso Doble to Pirates of the Caribbean track 'He's a Pirate', which is perhaps less likely to inspire a new inking.

Meanwhile, in other Strictly news, Tom Fletcher and Amy Dowden have confirmed their return to training after previously testing positive for COVID-19.

After isolating for 10 days, the McFly star and his professional partner are now back in the studio ahead of Saturday night's show.

The pair will make their dancefloor comeback as part of the series' Movies Week, where they'll perform the Jive to ''Johnny B Goode' from Back to the Future. How fitting.

Strictly Come Dancing 2021 continues on Saturday (October 9) on BBC One.
