Ooh I say! Strictly Come Dancing’s Caroline Quentin caused quite a stir on Saturday night as she appeared to lick pro partner Johannes Radebe’s arm

Caroline seemed to be in her element during the ‘Blackpool’ special of the show, throwing herself into the fun-filled routine in which she and her cat are saved by the South African choreographer.

Watching at home, Strictly fans were shocked by what they saw and rushed to Twitter to comment on the cheeky moment. 

‘Let’s face it, we’d all lick Johannes if we had the chance’ commented one viewer.

While a second asked: ‘Is that the first ever choreography in Strictly history that involved a celeb trying to lick their partner?’

‘What a fun routine. In fairness I’d lick Johannes too’ joked a third.

‘Did Caroline just lick Johannes mid-routine ????? Mood’ asked a fourth.

A disbelieving fifth watcher said: ‘Did Caroline just lick Johannes’s arm?? Or did I imagine that??’

Hungry? However, while fans were loving the performance, many were stunned by Caroline’s choice to lick her partner, with one viewer asking: ‘Did I imagine that?’

While another didn’t agree with her actions, remarking: ‘So why is it okay for Caroline Quentin to lick (and the rest) Johannes, a younger male professional? Imagine if it was the other way round? Would judges be reacting the same if Bill did that with Oti?’

And it wasn’t just viewers at home who noticed Caroline’s cheeky move as the judges did too.

Head judge Shirley started praising Caroline’s routine, remarking on her ‘beautiful posture’, before she suddenly turned her attention to the lick.
