"That was close… Thanks for waiting @easyjet. I take back all those complaints," he joked alongside a picture taken from inside the aeroplane.

Janette was no doubt delighted to have her husband home. She has been in London for the past few days and was feeling under the weather on Sunday after getting her Covid vaccine booster.

"Hi team, I got boosted yesterday and I am feeling a little bit tired, on the couch watching Friends. I just wanted to say 'Hi', get boosted and send you all my love. Going to stay on the couch as I have been the whole day," she said, as she laughed.

Despite being back in London, Janette and Aljaz still have a few days to relax before the Strictly Come Dancing Tour begins later this month.

Whilst Aljaz will be teaming up with Sara Davies, Janette will be dazzling crowds across the UK in her new role as the host.

She will be reunited with tour judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli, who is making his return to the judges’ desk for this tour.
