John Whaite Shirtless Chef, Boyfriend, Strictly Come Dancing. So, fellow Famewatchers, who among you are looking forward to John Thwaite dance his way to victory on Strictly Come Dancing? Well, we don’t really know whether he’ll win the disco ball (aka the ugliest winner’s trophy in the history of trophies) but he will be making history on the show as the first male celebrity to be paired with a male professional dancer.
John and his pro partner will be following the footsteps of boxer Nicola Adams and dance partner Katya Jones who, in the 18th edition of the series last year, were the first all female (and first same-sex) couple to ever grace the show.
Anyhoo, for the thirsty hos among us, here are some shirtless photos of Mr. Whaite:
The next pic is for those of you looking for a young John Whaite back when he was a baby-faced chef going for the shirtless in bow tie look.
Those of you who are not familiar with this British cutie or who do not watch the BBC’s best TV export, The Great British Bake Off, may not know that he actually won the show as a 22-year-old law student. Apparently, he graduated from law school but did not pursue a legal career because his career in showbiz took off. However, he eventually finished his barrister training and, in an interview with legalcheek.com, had this to say about his future plans:
Much as I relish every moment of the food industry, which allows me to express creativity, I have missed the critical thinking required in law. And after a year or two of personal development, I know wholeheartedly that what I want to do with my career is to advocate for the best possible outcome within a family law situation.
John and his GBBO trophy:
John Whaite Boyfriend. He is in a relationship with graphic designer Paul Atkins. According to Attitude Magazine, the couple have been together since 2008 and got engaged in 2017. Here’s a photo of the lovebirds:
And, finally, for the thirsty hos among us, here’s John sleeping in his briefs underoos which we had to crop so as not to annoy the censorious eyes of our Grandma Akita. We’re trying to remain in her good graces. Haha.
