‘This man is a gift to the world. If there were more people like him the world would be spectacular (with shed loads of!) He taught me how to walk in high heels, he taught me how to ‘own it’… he taught me to love and appreciate what my body could achieve.’

‘I’m often low on body confidence- but I’m so proud of the limits that I’ve thoroughly pushed on this wonderful journey. I did it for me.’

Catherine, who is mum to son Alfie, three, added that she was inspired by other mothers, declaring: ‘I also did it for the hundreds of mums out there who felt they’d lost a little bit of themselves, the women out there who’d become negative about their body. The women who found it hard to look in the mirror and love what they saw.’

Judge Shirley Ballas cast the deciding vote that sent her home, but Catherine remained positive, as she said of Johannes: ‘He’s like my best friend… Just the opportunity to work with amazing people and get critiqued off amazing people.

‘I never thought I’d say this, I’m going to keep it up because I fell in love with it! I’ve loved every second, this man has changed my life!’

Speaking to host Tess Daly, Johannes said: ‘The beautiful thing is that I need to thank Strictly Come Dancing for the opportunity…

‘Most of all, I want to say thank you to this woman. She has been a light for me. Thank you for accepting me for who I am and for showing me joy every day.’
