John and Johannes ‘pushed to one side’ in final

Meanwhile, some viewers became frustrated during the final at the weekend.

When Rose and Giovanni were announced as the winners, some fans felt John and Johannes were tossed to the side without much of a care.

After the announcement, presenter Tess Daly said: “Massive congratulations to our wonderful runners-up John and Joannes.”

The beloved duo then stood to the side as Rose and Giovanni gave their speeches. However, many felt they deserved more screen time.

As a result, many Strictly Come Dancing viewers took to social media to voice their frustration.

On Twitter, one said: “Huge congrats to J&J too. It is such a shame they weren’t given another opportunity to speak and be congratulated at the end. Either couple could have won and deserved it!”

“I think it’s such a shame that the runners up just get pushed to one side and not congratulated. And not even a conclusion on Take 2,” said another.
