STRICTLY Come Dancing fans were left in tears tonight as Johannes Radebe and Kai Widdrington performed a stunning same-sex love story.
The professional dancers danced a beautiful waltz at a Bridgerton-style ball to open tonight's show.
The love story saw Johannes play a young king with noone to dance with.
A dashing Kai stepped in and twirled]ed him around the dancefloor – and it was clearly love at first sight.
At the end of the dance, Johannes broke down in tears – and fans were also feeling emotional after the show's opener.
"I might just be overly emotional but did anyone else just sob their heart out at the opening dance on @bbcstrictly #strictly?" one fan tweeted.
"The dancers look so beautiful and was such a fantastic routine. And Johannes crying at the end. Gorgeous!"
Another added: "BREAKING NEWS: Johannes has been hospitalised after breaking his back from carrying the entire Series of Strictly Come Dancing #Strictly."
A third wrote: "For the kids watching this at home, struggling with their own sexuality and feeling a bit different to the others, seeing this front and centre of prime time TV will mean so much and do so much good."
Another wrote: "The gammon will be having actual kittens over this fabulous sight on #Strictly tonight. Good."
Meanwhile another added: "Strictly really said a big f*** you to the 200+ ofcom complaints about same sex couples and I’m here for it."
Boxer Nicola Adams made history last year when she danced with Katya Jones in the first all-female partnership.
But 38-year-old Nicola – who has been dating girlfriend Ella Baig, 22, for three years – was forced out of the competition just three weeks in after testing positive for coronavirus.
