In an exclusive interview and photoshoot, Strictly Come Dancing stars Aljaž Skorjanec and Janette Manrara are kicking off their dancing shoes and sequins for sandals and shorts. The Strictly couple are joining HELLO! for the exclusive photoshoot in their role as ambassadors for St. Tropez self-tanning products to celebrate the sparkling festive gift collection.
The engaged couple tell HELLO! they are planning to jet off to Janette’s native Miami to spend the holidays with her family.
"When Aljaž and I first met, we'd spend Christmas separately, with me in Miami and Aljaž at home in Slovenia," Janette tells Hello! "But we missed each other way too much. This year we’ll be putting on sandals and shorts to spend it with my family in Miami."
The soon-to-be newlyweds, who are tying the knot in 2017, tell HELLO!: "We're on the verge of finalising the venue and are about to compile our guest list. As for my wedding dress, I haven't even looked for one yet. I still don't know what I want." Aljaž adds: "Whatever Janette wears on our wedding day, she will look beautiful. And whatever Janette likes, Janette can have." And Janette says she doesn't believe in the Strictly curse which sees dancers end romantic relationships.
"We don’t think about it much. What happens in relationships has nothing to do with Strictly," Janette says. "It's down to individuals: if they want to do something, they will."
