Following the show, Johannes claimed he looked “like a sack of potatoes” on John’s Stories as they watched back footage of their ill-fated lift.
John then posted a screenshot of a sack of potatoes, with the caption: ”@johannesradebe is this you?”
Sharing a photo of him and Johannes on his page, John then wrote: “When life throws you a sack of spuds, you throw it over your shoulder anyway, then drop it and slap it on the arse.”
He continued: “In spite of throwing poor @johannesradebe to the floor with an almighty thud, tonight I had so much bloody fun on that dance floor and I’m so proud of what we’ve achieved.
“Whatever happens in the results show, @johannesradebe you’ll always be a king and I’m so super proud of you.”
John had ended up dropping Johannes during the routine after the pro gave him “the wrong hand” to lift him with.
Johannes ended up falling to the floor at the end of the routine, to which the dancer remarked: “It’s live, anything can happen.”
John and Johannes were not the only pair to suffer an awkward moment during their Salsa routine on Saturday night.
