In the love story Johannes played the role of a young king with no one to dance with.


A flamboyant Kai stepped in and swung her around the dancefloor—and it was clearly love at first sight.

At the end of the dance, Johannes burst into tears – and fans were getting emotional after the show’s opener.

“I might be being overly sentimental, but did anyone else pour their heart out at the opening dance on @bbcstrictly #strictly?” A fan tweeted.

“The dancers look so beautiful and had such a great routine. And Johannes was crying at the end. Gorgeous!”

Another added: “BREAKING NEWS: Johannes has been hospitalized after breaking his back from carrying the full series of Strictly Come Dancing #Strictly.”

A third wrote: “For kids watching this at home, struggling with their sexuality and feeling a little different from others, watching this front and center of prime time TV means a lot and does a lot.”

Another wrote: “Gaiman will be real kittens on this spectacular sight tonight #Strictly. Nice.”

Meanwhile another added: “You really said a big f*** to com complaints about same sex couples and I’m here for it.”

Boxer Nicola Adams made history last year when she danced with Katya Jones in her first all-female partnership.

But 38-year-old Nicola – who has been dating girlfriend Ella Begg of 22 for three years – was kicked out of the competition just three weeks after testing positive for the coronavirus.
