Strictly Come Dancing 2021 Week 5 saw John Whaite and Johannes Radebe perform a Charleston to an Edith Piaf track to a great reception
The BBC One dance show’s first male same-sex couple performed a show-stopping Charleston for Week 5 to Edith Piaf’s Milord.
The dance prompted extremely positive comments from the judges, winning the pair a score of 38 and topping the leader board.
After the pair had danced, however, they had even more exciting feedback from the a friend at John’s local pub via a video link.
Among them was Shirley who had been a dinner lady that made John remove his fake tan with a scourer when he was younger.
When Claudia Winkleman asked Shirley what she thought of the performance, she answered: “Oh my God, it was so amazing!
Shirley awarded the performance 11s which were written on two bowls.
She then said loudly: “Jeez, Woah, I’m wet…”
John looked shocked before Shirley added while fanning herself: “…with the sweat”.
Shirley then referred to the pair as the “dream team” as it was clear how much support they both had.
Naturally, the comment from Shirley and the initial pause caused much amusement online who took to social media to share their thoughts.
A different viewer penned: ” #Strictly Ok I think she meant wet with sweat. But it was still funny”.
“The rest of the show has just been over shadowed for me by the “I’m wet” comment. Can’t stop laughing,” wrote another viewer.
Meanwhile, another viewer commented: “If you did a shot for every innuendo tonight you’d be dead even before the woman yelled “I’m wet” on live TV. #strictly “.
Elsewhere, one BBC One viewer wrote: “Are you allowed to be wet before the watershed? #Strictly “.
Finally, one Strictly Come dancing fan concluded: ““I’m wet!” *entire live audience freezes* “…with sweat!” *entire live audience relaxes again* #Strictly “.
