Strictly Come Dancing 2021 is just around the corner, and fans can’t wait to discover who professional dancers will be paired with which celebrity competitor. BBC fans will soon find out when the new series premieres later this month. On Steph’s Packed Lunch on Channel 4, TV chef John Whaite hinted at who he would be dancing with within the season.
John Whaite has a theory when it comes to his soon-to-be professional partner on Strictly Come Dancing 2021. According to the show’s official description, nobody knows who will be holding Whaite’s hand during the performances, but they will be the show’s first-ever male partnership.
Because he is 6 feet 2 inches tall, Whaite believes it’s all a matter of height. I think they’re all tall enough for me,” she teased on Steph’s Packed Lunch, referring to Graziano Di Prima, Johannes Radebe, Aljaz Skorjanec and Kai Widdrington. “It’s possible, however, that they’ll offer me a shorter dancer in heels. My dream is to dance in heels.”
Considering that any of these four players would be a good fit logistically, we’d be astonished if Whaite was given Nikita Kuzmin, Cameron Lombard.
The 32-year-old addressed the TV host about his historic stint on Strictly Come Dancing: “It’s a great honour to be asked… Two boys or girls dancing together on Saturday night television and no one making a fuss about it would have made me less ashamed of being gay as a child.”
“That’s all I’m hoping for. I hope that kids out there see it without questioning it, who watch it and think: I’m okay with being me; I’m accepted by others and loved for who I am. What a huge honour.”
In 2021, BBC One will re-air Strictly Come Dancing, which currently airs on BBC One.
