The Strictly Come Dancing star has been wowing the judges and viewers with his skills over the past month. In particular, his Pirates of the Caribbean routine with Johannes Radebe scored an incredible 39 points. John Whaite has since explained the happiness he feels when performing. However he quickly backtracked as he remembered his partner Paul.

After watching a clip of his American Smooth to I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me) by George Michael and Aretha Franklin, John declared his love for the show on It Takes Two.

John remarked: “I never knew my limbs could feel so loose, it’s amazing. It’s wonderful.”

“Now JoJo, he started on his own and you were just kind of looking at him,” Janette Manrara commented.

“Did you feel happy to see him like kind of lose himself in that moment a bit?”

Johannes replied: “Absolutely! It’s so nice to see him come in to his own.

“I want us to enjoy the dance floor because it’s a moment and I think he is living it up.”

“Of course and it goes by in a second doesn’t it?” Janette remarked.

John replied: “Before you know it, it’s over and you get the anxiety at first but within seconds it’s gone.

“Before you know it, you’re in front of the judges. I have never been as happy in my life as I am in those 90 seconds.

“Apart from when I’m with my boyfriend and stuff but on the dance floor I just feel if I could bottle it up and sell it, what an amazing thing.”

“You’d make a lot of money with that,” Janette laughed.

This weekend, John and Johannes will be performing the Charleston to Milord by Édith Plaf.

After the pair slipped down the leaderboard last week by 10 points, they will be hoping to show improvement with the upbeat number.

John recently revealed there’s a reason he is not attracted to Johannes.

Speaking on Steph’s Packed Lunch, he exclaimed: “When you spend that much time with them you see them warts and all.

“Like, I think I’ve burped in Johanne’s face. I might have even farted at one point.

“So, there’s no attraction because you see everything. Sweat and everything else.”

Paul also insisted there was no chance of the Strictly “curse” striking, commenting: “If you could see [John] at the end of the day after a full day’s rehearsing, he can barely walk so there’s no room for anything else.

“He crawls through the door at the end of the day.”

Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday on BBC One at 7.05pm.
