Former Strictly Come Dancing star Judi Love has nothing but praise for the show's finalists John Whaite and Johannes Radebe, saying the pioneering duo have changed the shape of ballroom dancing forever!
Writing in her regular OK! column this week, Judi said she couldn't pick a final winner out of the remaining contestants, a group which also includes TV presenter AJ Odudu and her partner Kai Widdrington as well as EastEnders actress Rose Ayling-Ellis and her pro partner Giovanni Pernice.
However she did give special kudos to John and Johannes, the first same sex couple to ever feature on the show.
"John Whaite and Johannes Radebe have changed the shape of ballroom forever," she gushed. "They are just brilliant."

But some vile trolls were upset with the two men making the final and their hurtful words led John to hit back in an official statement.
Taking to Instagram he fumed: "You vicious, empty people are a dying breed.
"You’ll be left behind as the world becomes kinder, more empathic, more loving, more tolerant, more understanding. The only grievance you should feel is your own failure to evolve."
Celeb fans were quick to support him, with AJ replying, "NOONE CAN DIM YOUR LIGHT. You are loved. Fact."
Fellow Strictly alumni Dan Walker also showed his support with a string of fire emojis.
But one thing's for sure, the trolls won't stop John and Johannes from giving it their all when the final airs this weekend!
