Janette also wore gold for a girls' night out

Janette went on to thank former Strictly judge Darcey Bussell for putting on such a "wonderful evening" at the Royal Albert England in support of the British Ballet Gala.

The TV star enjoyed another reunion on Wednesday as she headed for a girls' night out with her fellow dancers Nadiya Bychkova and Giada Lini at Gola Restaurant in London.

Opting for gold again, Janette looked beautiful in a sparkly mini dress, which highlighted her bronzed legs. The glam little number was perfectly offset with a smart white blazer and a pair of shimmery, strappy heels – gorgeous!
