John showed off just how tanned he was as he cheekily pulled down his undergarment to reveal a streak of stark white against the tan. 

The Great British Bake Off star is set to perform the dance with his professional partner Johannes Radebe to Sting’s Shape Of My Heart this week. 

Last week, the dancing duo scored an impressive 33 points with their werewolf themed Quickstep.

The post comes after John and Johannes’ candid interview with Attitude magazine, where they discussed being the show’s first ever all-male pairing.

He told the publication he was ‘anxious’ about dancing with a male because he believes gay people are ‘conditioned’ to expect ‘hate and flack’, and he thought he would be targeted by trolls. 

‘As soon as I found out, I felt a little bit anxious. I think as gay people, we have to choose the places we go to, we have to choose the people we speak to, who we even look at, because we have been conditioned to kind of expect hate and flack.

‘So honestly, I was quite anxious about it. I knew that it was an important thing to do, that it was hopefully going to change the way TV is, change the way that children feel when they watch TV — it’s massive — but I was expecting to get a lot of hate, like [people] sliding into the DMs and saying, “You’re disgusting” and that kind of thing.’

The baker explained that he feels uncomfortable with people calling him and Johannes ‘role models’ as they have people helping them behind the scenes from make-up artists to costume designers, insisting they are ‘lucky’ to be ‘representing for our people’. 

Johannes recently revealed he feels the need to change how he dresses after he was accosted by the police.   

During an appearance on Channel 4’s Steph’s Packed Lunch last month, the South African stressed that it is crucial it is to consider both his location and appearance when out and about.

Johannes recalled his ‘terrible’ experiences and admitted that he now avoids wearing a leather jacket and cap.

He said: ‘I’m going to stop wearing a cap and a black leather jacket. I say that because I get stopped all the time, and they [the police] go, “Oh sorry, it’s not you.”  

‘I’m tall, I’m black it’s important who you are and what you do and where you hang around.’

The talented dancer revealed how he has to make an effort to dress ‘civilised’ in a bid to prevent being stopped by the police.
