"We haven't made any wedding plans yet – it took me four years to ask her," Aljaz told HELLO! magazine. "I'm not saying it will take another four years to arrange the wedding, but we only became engaged in August and since Strictly started, we've barely had time to turn around, never mind plan a wedding.

Aljaz and Janette have been too busy with Strictly to start wedding planning

"Once Strictly and the tour are over, we will decide then."

While Aljaz and Janette are very much a team off the show, on screen they are competing against each other to pick up the coveted glitterball trophy with their respective partners, Helen George and Peter Andre. However the Slovenian dancer insists there is no real rivalry between them.

"There is never any sense of competition between us," Aljaz explained. "We make sure that her numbers with Peter look great and my numbers with Helen look great."

Aljaz popped the question to Janette in a London restaurant in August, after four years of dating. The 25-year-old later shared the happy news on Twitter with a picture of Janette flashing her new engagement ring while holding a plate with "Congratulations" written in chocolate. "She said "YES"!", Aljaz tweeted, adding a heart emoticon.

The couple have both been professionals on Strictly since 2013 – which Aljaz went on to win with model Abbey Clancy. They are both expected to do well in the competition this year, with Aljaz and Call the Midwife star Helen coming a close second on the leaderboard during the Halloween special.
