John Whaite has teased who his professional dancer could be as he shares a behind-the-scenes clip from the dance studio during his first Strictly Come Dancing training lesson.

The Great British Bake Off winner has given viewers a sneak peek inside the life of a Strictly dancer as he told his loyal legion of fans to prepare for a “phenomenal” performance on September 25.

The celebrity contestants were partnered up with their professional dancers last weekend which is set to air on Saturday as the contestants got a head start on training.

And the TV chef shared how he has been put to the test after he was fitted with a complex training aid to help improve his posture while dancing as he is set to make Strictly history in the first all-male couple.

John told his 109,000 followers online: “Right I'm at rehearsals, I'm doing my first day of official training today for Strictly and it is so much fun.

“It’s really hard work. I keep buggering up my steps and I'm already aching in crevices and cracks that I didn’t know existed about my body. But this dance, if I can get it right, is going to be phenomenal.

Speaking about his pro dancer, he added: “My dancer, my professional dancer, who will remain nameless until Saturday’s launch show is just a gem.

“He really is. He's pushing me, he’s a task master that’s for sure, but if I can get it right and make him proud it’s gonna be beautiful.”

The blonde hunk later shared a picture of himself attached to some sort of contraption which helped him to maintain good posture while twirling around the dance floor.

The cookery master joked: “My partner has resorted to medieval torture implements” as fans questioned who the lucky fella could be.

This comes after the Strictly hunk flashed his tan lines as he stood in a tanning tent with his freshly bronzed spray tan applied last Friday.

The Steph’s Packed Lunch chef took to his Instagram stories to share the cheeky clip as he pulled his tiny black pants down to show off his white lines as he started his glam transformation ahead of his Strictly debut.

John captioned the saucy video: “I came prepared and brought my own thong for the Strictly spray tan. Nat and Marie made this boy feel at home while the scrubbed me and sprayed me in the shade of Venetian Plus.”
