Aljaz shared his pride over his wife's talent 

Janette showed off her singing skills online last year, during the first lockdown, when she uploaded a short video of herself which showed her belting out part of the Adele hit Make You Feel My Love.

Janette captioned the post: "Not quite there yet, but working on it. Haha! I’ve always LOVED singing, but dancing always took over. Working on my singing during this time & I’ve always wanted to sing this song (love @adele! What a voice!)"

The loved-up couple were Strictly co-stars for eight years

The 37-year-old went on: "Then I realised, this song is quite relevant at the moment for us all. Times are tough & I know a lot of us could use a hug right now, I hope this little snippet of today’s practice provides at least some virtual love & comfort from me. (P.S. I was really nervous to share with you all! Haha!)"

The star will be showing off another side to her talents this autumn as she leaves Strictly in order to join the BBC show's weekday spin-off, It Takes Two.
