John Whaite has admitted that the chemistry Strictly Come Dancing fans have noticed between himself and partner Johannes on the dancefloor does not translate to the rehearsal room. The star went into graphic detail to explain why training doesn’t leave any room for romance.

The Great British Bake Off winner admitted that dance rehearsals aren’t nearly as glamorous as the live show, with no room to hide bodily functions after a trying day of exercise.

The baker openly discussed his thoughts on the ‘Strictly Curse’ during an episode of Steph’s Packed Lunch this Week, which has previously caused many celebs to leave their other halves in favour of their new dance partners.

Chatting to Steph McGovern, he shut down any speculation around himself and Johannes.

“When you spend that much time with them you see them warts and all,” he said.

“Like, I think I’ve burped in Johannes’ face.

“I might have even farted at one point,” he continued.

“So, there’s no attraction because you see everything.

“Sweat and everything else.”

John has been in a relationship with his fiancé Paul Atkins for the past 13 years and the two still appear to be very loved up.

Following rumours surrounding the ‘curse’ earlier this month, Paul easily put them to bed.

“If you could see him at the end of the day after a full day’s rehearsing, he can barely walk so there’s no room for anything else.

“He crawls through the door at the end of the day.”

John rose to fame after winning The Great British Bake Off in 2012 and now works as a chef, television presenter and author.

The star has admitted he felt incredibly excited to get an opportunity to perform on Strictly.

John and Johannes are the first same-sex male partnership to dance together on Strictly and they have been wowing judges every week.

“We’ve both worked really hard,” John said about his rehearsals with Johannes.

“And I’m treating this as a celebration of the hard work since Bake Off.”

“And anything else is the cherry on the cake. I’m just enjoying it week by week.”

Last Saturday night, the pair dazzled audiences with their powerful Paso Doble to the Pirates of the Caribbean theme tune for movie week.

They achieved a near-perfect score of 39 points – the highest score of the competition so far – and are currently the front-runners to win the glitterball trophy this year.
