STRICTLY favourite Johannes Radebe is bringing his brand new production Freedom Unleashed to Mayflower Theatre in 2023.

Following the success of his sell-out debut UK tour, the international champion will return to Southampton on Sunday April 2, 2023.

In Freedom Unleashed, Johannes will be joined by a cast of talented dancers and singers, performing to a mix of African rhythms and huge party anthems with a touch of ballroom magic.

He told the Daily Echo: "The British public really has opened its heart to me and I feel very thankful."

Born in a South African township, Johannes started dancing when he was seven.

In 2018, he was invited to join the debut season of Dancing With The Stars in South Africa.

Johannes toured the world with Burn The Floor before being headhunted by Strictly Come Dancing.

Last year, he and celebrity partner John Waite made history by being the first all-male partnership to compete on the show.
