South African Dancing With The Stars dance professional, Johannes Radebe, is all set to join Strictly Come Dancing when the show returns later this year.
The two-time Professional South African Latin Champ and three time South African Amateur Latin Champion has enjoyed two seasons of the South African version and both times reached the finals.
Many may know the 31-year-old from M-Net’s Dancing With The Stars, where he was paired with Netball Star Vanes-Mari Du Toit. The pair made it to the top four before being voted off.
“Joining Strictly Come Dancing is one of the greatest achievements of my dancing career. It is such an honour to be chosen to be a part of an incredible cast and be part of one of the biggest shows that is celebrated worldwide. I cannot wait to get started and experience the magic with the UK!,”said Rabede about his selection.
Joining Radebe in the new season are Italian Latin Champion Graziano Di Prima and four-time winner of the Italian Dance Championship Luba Mushtuk.
All three dancers will join Strictly Come Dancing when the show returns later in the year bringing the total number of professional dancers to eighteen, promising the biggest and most hotly anticipated series to date.
