Strictly pro reveals his incredible life story is going to be made into a movie

PRO dancer Johannes Radebe has revealed his life story is about to be turned into a film.

The South African’s rags-to-riches journey was chronicled in his autobiography, Jojo: Finally Home.

Strictly professional Johannes Radebe says his life story is set to be turned into a movie

At the Harold Pinter Theatre in London, in conversation with Radio 1 host Clara Amfo, he said: “Looking at the way things have turned out now, I could not have dreamt that one day people would be reading about my life story, so every day’s a milestone.

“But a beautiful thing has happened. The thing I am most looking forward to right now is that we have an opportunity to turn this book into a film.”


Johannes, 36, joined Strictly in 2018 and made his first competitive appearance with ex-Coronation street star Catherine Tyldesley, 39, the following year.

Since then he has become a fans’ favourite and, in 2021, he reached the final with John Whaite, 34, losing out to ex-EastEnders star Rose Ayling-Ellis, 28.

Now Johannes has other ambitions – even contemplating becoming a judge.

And he joked that he has his eye on Craig Revel Horwood’s panel spot.


Johannes said: “ I have always said I would not want to leave the magic of Strictly, that would kill me.

“But if I could still be a part of that magical world long after I have put my shoes up, I’d love the opportunity. Craig, watch out!”
