In 2019, Johannes Radebe became the first male dancer to perform in heels in Strictly Come Dancing history. Two years on, he was part of only the second same-sex pair on the show, dancing with Great British Bake-Off winner, John Whaite and though they were runners up and the response from the UK public was overwhelmingly positive, Johannes still faced abuse that highlighted the continuing fight against homophobia and racism. For Johannes this instantly iconic dance was about more than just a tribute to voguing: it was Johanne’s coming out. After that performance, Johannes flew home to South Africa to see his mum and had a conversation about his sexuality – the first they ever had. Johannes’ incredible rise to stardom through his dancing has led him to places he never thought possible, personally and professionally and now he is sharing his story up to now with the world.

Champion dancer and Strictly Come Dancing professional Johannes Radebe has captured our hearts with his mesmerising talent, bringing joy to millions of fans and wowing the most critical of judges. He is loved not only for his dancing, but for his beautiful, infectious spirit and energy.

Jojo: Finally Home is his never-before-told story, where he shares the experiences and challenges he’s faced – from growing up in Zamdela, a township in South Africa, as a young boy with a passion for dance (and playing with Barbies), to becoming the star he is today. Dance transformed Jojo’s future, giving him a tool to express himself – but as you will learn, this was not always easy.

Captivating and moving, these are Jojo’s tales of euphoric highs and all-time lows, of making history, of grief, love, family and opportunity. It is a celebration of him finally feeling at home in his own skin. These are the personal moments that have shaped him into the man he is today – someone who lives life to the full and believes that no mountain is insurmountable.
