Strictly’s John Whaite is comforted by Neil Jones as he gets emotional while encountering issues checking into their London hotel ahead of the final leg of the live tour


The stars of the Strictly Come Dancing live tour have arrived in London ahead of their final leg. 

And on Friday morning, John Whaite, 32, was comforted by Neil Jones, 39, as he got emotional while encountering issues checking into their London hotel.

It seemed that the TV baker didn’t have a reservation, and looked very upset at the reception while dealing with hotel staff to sort out the booking issues.

Neil gave John a reassuring squeeze on the shoulder and stop to chat and to assist his co-star in resolving the situation.

According to onlookers, it took about half-an-hour for the issue to be sorted out, and John headed up to his hotel room.  

John kept things low-key in a plain black T-shirt teamed with skinny jeans, and wore a baseball cap on his head.   

Neil commanded attention in a bright orange hoodie with khaki coloured cargo pants.

John’s hotel issues came five days after he revealed he’d tested positive for Covid, telling fans in an Instagram video: ‘Hi everyone, a little bit of bad news I’m afraid.’

The Bake Off star shared the news on Saturday and explained he wouldn’t be able to perform in Glasgow, but insisted: ‘I feel fine.’

John was referring to the Glasgow leg of Strictly Come Dancing’s live tour. He has been travelling the UK as part of the star-studded show.

In December, John and his dance partner Johannes Radebe made it all the way to the ITV Strictly final but lost out to deaf soap star Rose Ayling-Ellis and her pro partner, Giovanni Pernice. 

Getting it sorted: According to onlookers, it took about half-an-hour for the issue to be sorted out, and John headed up to his hotel room

They’re joined on the road for the live tour by Max George and professional dancer Katya Jones as well as Rose and Giovanni, from the 2021 series.

Other dance couples on the bill from this year’s show include Sara Davies and Aljaz Skorjanec, Tilly Ramsay and Nikita Kuzmin and Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu.

AJ Odudu was forced to pull out of the tour after she continues to recover from the injury which meant her early exit from the series. Her professional partner Kai Widdrington has instead been paired with 2020 star Maisie Smith.   

Strictly’s professional dancers Amy Dowden, Neil Jones, Luba Mushtuk and Jowita Przystal also perform with the couples in over 33 sequin-spangled shows.
