It's clear that the cast of Strictly Come Dancing remain firm friends after appearing on the BBC show, and Janette Manrara is no exception. On Tuesday morning, the dancer posted a picture alongside her husband and a couple of former Strictly contenders, including her former dance partner, proving that the close bond between the professionals and celebrities last over the years.

Janette was smiling in the picture alongside husband and fellow professional, Aljaž Škorjanec, former Strictly champ Ore Oduba, and her series 13 celebrity partner, Peter Andre. Janette captioned the post: "Well this was a nice reunion! Great to be on @gmb talking about @rememberingtour next year! But even better seeing these 2! Great memories! Love you two! #StrictlyReunion."

Peter Andre appeared alongside Janette on series 13 of the BBC ballroom competition in 2015 and the pair made it to week 10 before they were eliminated. The couple impressed the judges many times over the course of their time in the competition, earning high scores including a near-perfect score of 38 for their Charleston in week seven.
