John Whaite and Johannes Radebe suffer a strict setback | Television and radio | Show biz & TV
Strictly Come Dancing is now in its sixth week and this time the celebrities are getting scary for the Halloween special. Over the past five weeks, John Whaite and Johannes Radebe have consistently emerged as one of the favorite couples to beat. However, recent odds have shown that there is a new leader in the BBC competition.
After the fifth week of competition, the rankings have once again changed quite dramatically.
Unfortunately, Ugo Monye was next after the dreaded dance match against Rhys Stephenson.
All four judges voted unanimously to save Stephenson, with most viewers surprised to see him in the final two of the week.
Judi Love was absent last week with a positive COVID-19 test result, but she will be back for the Halloween special.

Her inclusion will see her join the rankings at the bottom of the group, making this week one of the most important in the entire competition.
However, at the other end of the table, things get just as intense.
Whaite sailed near the top throughout the show, with the bookies also favoring him to take the big win at the end of the competition.
Still, that changed after week five, with Rose Ayling-Ellis taking the top spot for the favorite to win.
The change in odds can come as a shock, especially as Whaite took first place again in week five.
Whaite and Radebe scored 38 points in total, while Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice came in second with 37.
After Ayling-Ellis’ dance, Anton Du Beke said: “Your posture and the line of your arms are impeccable. Really, really good.
While Motsi Mabuse added: “I don’t think I need to add anything because your dance spoke for itself. It was dancing, it was the moment, it was magic. That’s it.”
