Strictly Come Dancing duo Johannes Radebe and his former 'angel' partner Annabel Croft are teaming up once again for an entertainment extravaganza.

The professional dancer and the former tennis ace, who finished fourth in the BBC contest's semi-final, are set to reunite for Johannes’ live show, House of Jojo, at the London Palladium on May 4.

The star, who almost quit when he was paired with Croft, revealed: "I did say we'll continue dancing... I'm feeling grateful. For one night only (and the matinee) the wonderful @annabel_croft will be joining my show at The London Palladium on the 4th May for a very special performance.

"Another chance to dance with my darling friend at a theatre I have been dreaming of performing at since I started touring. Buzzing."

“I'm over the moon with the cast I have joining me on tour with House of Jojo over the coming months,” Johannes said in a statement about the show. “We've found an exceptional array of dancers and I know Antonia and Dalton will deliver outstanding vocals.

“I'm also so excited to announce that my darling Annabel will be my special guest at The London Palladium. Another chance to hold this angel in my arms and at a theatre I've been dreaming of performing in since I first started my solo tour a few years ago.”

The international champion will be joined by a 'host of eclectic characters in this brand-new theatrical celebration jam-packed with roof-raising music, dazzling costumes and of course, world class dance'.

The tour runs for two months, kicking off in High Wycombe on March 29 and concluding in Liverpool on June 2.

Also joining the cast are singers Anthonia Edwards, the 2022 winner of The Voice UK and Dalton Harris, 2018 winner of The X Factor.
