Janette Manrara has paid a heartfelt tribute to her husband Alijaz Skorjanec. The Strictly couple have only just celebrated their second wedding anniversary, but have already had to say their goodbyes after work commitments mean they are being forced to separate for two weeks. Sharing a romantic snap on Instagram of herself and Alijaz wrapped up in a fur rug in front of a fire, Janette said: "Got to spend a little bit of time with you for our anniversary before I had to say goodbye again for the next two weeks. I’ve already started the countdown! Cannot wait to be in your arms again! Let’s hope these two weeks fly..... I love you."

The couple are so in love!

In 2017, the professional dancers enjoyed not one, but three wedding ceremonies. The couple tied the knot in London, Slovenia and Florida, and went on to enjoy a two-week honeymoon in Florida. On Tuesday they both shared lovely throwbacks from their wedding day. "Happy Anniversary my love," gushed Janette, while Aljaz wrote: "To at least two more years! :) Happy anniversary Bučka."

The couple married in 2017

The lovebirds settled in the UK after their first meeting in a dance studio in London in 2010. Aljaz popped the question in 2015 and the pair tied the knot in a lavish ceremony two years later. Since their debut on the BBC show in 2013, the pro dancers have become fan favourites. It was confirmed recently that the pair will be returning to the next series of Strictly, alongside most of the other cast members from 2018.

Janette and Alijaz had three wedding ceremonies

Earlier this year, Aljaz and Janette opened their hearts about their fairytale marriage and baby plans in an exclusive interview with HELLO!. "It's never going to be the perfect time to have a baby but we do talk about it a lot and we are very much looking forward to becoming a mum and dad," revealed Janette. "So it's definitely going to happen. When we don't know, we'll see. We're kind of taking it slowly. A dancer's career can be quite short, especially when you reach a certain level, and work is going so good for us at the moment that is the priority."
