Strictlys John Whaite sweetly surprised by fiancé Paul Atkins as he gets highest Samba score

Strictly Come Dancing's John Whaite was sweetly surprised by his fiancé Paul Atkins during rehearsals on Saturday's show.

The Great British Bake Off 2021 winner, 32, went on to get the highest Samba score of the series with pro partner Johannes Radebe as they received 38 points from the judges after their routine to Acuyuye by DLG.

Ahead of the routine, John was sweetly surprised by his fiancé Paul during rehearsals with Johannes, 34, even teaching him some of their dance moves.

Speaking in a VT, the contestant said: "Today we had a very surprise visit from my fiancé Paul! He is just the best thing in my life."


John then joked to Johannes: "So you think you've had it bad for eight weeks, he's had it for 13 years!"

Paul then gave his own sweet message as he said: "I’m so proud of John, he’s working so so hard!"

After teaching Paul some of the Samba steps, Johannes said he was "quite a natural" on the dance floor.

And all the hard work paid off as after performing live on Saturday's show, John and Johannes got the highest Samba score of the series with 38 points.

The Samba is Johannes' favourite dance and John admitted that he "felt the pressure", he said: "Oh this week has been hellish!

"Emotionally, spiritually draining, physically demanding. Oh yeah and the fact it is Johannes' favourite dance, well, one of many… I didn't want to let him down."


Viewers went wild over John's fiancé Paul surprising him on the show as they took to Twitter to gush over the "cute" couple.

One person said: "John’s fiancé is so cute #Strictly."

A different account put: "JOHN AND HIS FIANCÉ ARE TOO CUTE WHAT #STRICTLY."
