The Great British Sewing Bee fans left convinced they have worked out future Strictly contestant after spotting ‘clue’


THE Great British Sewing Bee fans have been left convinced they have worked out a future Strictly Come Dancing star.

Tonight’s celebrity special of the BBC One programme saw four celebrities go head-to-head for the sewing title.

Viewers think Patrick Grant could be on the show

Rosie Ramsay, Penny Lancaster, Nathalie Cassidy and Johannes Radebe faced the judges to be crowned the best sewer.

Strictly Come Dancing pro Johannes, 35, was seen showing off his dancing skills on the show in between sewing.

He took to the centre of the room to try and teach the judges Patrick Grant and Esme Young how to dance.

The Strictly professional locked hands with Patrick, 50, as he tried to teach him some dance steps.

The fashion designer was seen struggling to follow the instructions, leading fans to assume one thing.

Many took to Twitter to speculate that Patrick would be signed to take part in the next series of Strictly.

“Patrick for Strictly!” one said, as another chimed in: “Patrick dancing with Johannes! Next year Strictly!”

“Patrick Grant for Strictly 2023?” a third said, while a fourth added: “Patrick on Strictly next year, please.”


It comes after Johannes hinted at a feud with one of his former celeb partners on It Takes Two.

The South African native sat down with Janette Manrara for a chat with Ellie Taylor after their last dance on the show.

After the comedienne was eliminated from the competition, Johannes made the comment as the pair were being interviewed to reminisce on their stint on the BBC dance floor.

But the interview soon went south after the Strictly Come Dancing pro was asked about his personal highlight from this year’s competition.

After Janette quizzed the star Johannes replied with a cutting dig at his former partners.

He replied: “The highlight of my series would be Janette, not once have I had to reach out to my therapist this season.”
