Aljaz came to visit his wife in her dressing room on the show's first night before she took to the stage.

The Strictly tour performers were preparing for the first of their two performances at Leeds' First Direct arena when Janette decided to share the video of her husband's surprise visit from the beginning of the tour.

The former Strictly professional dancer captioned her video: "He surprised me on my first night!" and added a romantic love heart emoji. She also added the light-hearted comment "P.S. my sexy compression socks on and all" in reference to her pre-show dressing room outfit.

Janette and her husband have been together since 2010

The professional dancing couple, who were married in three spectacular weddings in 2017, recently shared a major life change with their fans, again through Instagram. And while the couple are yet to have any children, Janette opened up about their feelings on the subject.

"We're definitely ready to be parents," she told HELLO!. "So we will see when that moment comes - you can't plan it."

Janette was obviously in the mood to celebrate the tour so far on Thursday night, as she shared more images and footage of other former Strictly stars who had come to visit the touring performers including ITV's Dr Ranj and Gordon Ramsay's daughter Tilly Ramsay.
