GRAZIANO Di Prima has revealed his Strictly Come Dancing co star Johannes Radebe broke down in tears as he was forced to miss his wedding.
Pro dancer Graziano recently married his fiancée Giada Lini in Sicily, and Johannes was set to be his best man, but was unable to make it due to visa issues.
Graziano explained to OK! Magazine: “He called me crying on the day.
“In the morning he told me, ‘I know I’m not there but I’ve been crying all night and my heart will be beside you.’ He also said he had dressed up as though he was at the wedding, but he was at his apartment at home.
“Johannes and I started our journey on Strictly together and just connected.
"We’d talk about coming from really humble cities and how we found a way to excel, dream big and work hard. He has been there for me so much.”

In the end the dancer had brother Pietro and best friend Arduino as his best men, while Giada had several flower girls and two best men; brother Leonardo and man-of-honour Alberto.
