Last week, fans adored John and Johannes’ dancing, where they received a standing ovation from the audience, judges, and their fellow contestants. 

McFly star Tom Fletcher and his dancing partner Amy Dowden tested positive for Covid, so unfortunately they will not be able to dance in this week’s show, but they will return the following week when they have recovered.
