*THE INSTANT SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER!*

Champion dancer and Strictly Come Dancing professional Johannes Radebe has captured our hearts with his mesmerising talent, bringing joy to millions of fans and wowing the most critical of judges. He is loved not only for his dancing, but for his beautiful, infectious spirit and energy.

Jojo: Finally Home is his never-before-told story, where he shares the experiences and challenges he’s faced – from growing up in Zamdela, a township in South Africa, as a young boy with a passion for dance (and playing with Barbies), to becoming the star he is today. Dance transformed Jojo’s future, giving him a tool to express himself – but as you will learn, this was not always easy.

Captivating and moving, these are Jojo’s tales of euphoric highs and all-time lows, of making history, of grief, love, family and opportunity. It is a celebration of him finally feeling at home in his own skin. These are the personal moments that have shaped him into the man he is today – someone who lives life to the full and believes that no mountain is insurmountable.

    Johannes’ story is moving and inspirational. You don’t have to be a Strictly fan to appreciate how he became the warm hearted man and brilliant dancer that he is

    Jojo is my favourite strictly pro and I have been wanting to purchase this for a while now so I decided to treat myself after achieving my most recent HR qualification. I have only read a few pages and already find his memoir very inspiring! Not only Jojo is a Fab-u-lous dancer but his memoir also spreads joy for having such a beautiful sole and brings me hope when reading it. Thank you very much for sharing your story with us Jojo – we are so proud of far you have come!!

    While Jojo goes over interesting facts in his life history, he steers clear of the most personal detail. Where things were hard, or he was neglected, he is overly forgiving and reflective about the people responsible. He seems not to want to say anything very negative about anyone. There are high-level conclusions about himself, the world and others, but no detail. It’s like summing up over-arching lessons from therapy, rather than detailing any of the gory detail. After reading it, I am disappointed not to know whether he’s ever had a boyfriend, and to know nothing of how things were on Strictly, with John Waite. There’s nothing to dispel my view of him as a lovely individual, and it’s nicely written.

    Fell i live with JoJo’s dancing on Strictly and attended all his tours. It was lovely to read about his humble beginnings and how he has progressed his dancing carers into the success that it is today. The book was a decent size, not too much to read but enought to keep you focused

    Jojo Finally Home is one of the best memoirs I have read. I was honest and endearing. If like me you are a fan of the Strictly Professional you will absolutely love reading about his struggle, grit and determination to succeed in becoming a dancer and be able to take care of his family. The book is written beautifully and you can hear Johannes’ voice as you read his story. Truly inspirational.
