Shirley Ballas has teased an emotional same-sex professional dance routine on Strictly Come Dancing.

This Saturday (November 2), the BBC ballroom and latin show will see professional dancers Johannes Radebe and Graziano Di Prima come together for a same-sex dance routine.

And while speaking to Digital Spy, the head judge has told people to ‘get the tissues ready’.

She said: “All I can say is have your tissues ready. It’s the most magnificent thing I have witnessed in rehearsals.

“Johannes brings out such a wonderful joy of dancing, and him and Graziano just envelope the whole experience.

“It warms your heart for sure. It is for sure something to look forward to.”

This season saw Johannes wow audiences with a queer dance routine where viewers declared him the show’s ‘true winner’ after channelling a different kind of ballroom dancing, complete with fan, heels and leather trousers.
