The Strictly: It Takes Two host was seen cosying up to husband Aljaz Skorjanec as they watched their niece Tisa get christened – and the day was all the more special since the couple officially became her godparents. Janette, 38, pulled out all the stops for the special family event, rocking an eye-catching green dress with a funky leopard print design. She accessorised the long-sleeved, V-neck dress with a pendant necklace and wore her brunette bob in a sleek style.

Aljaz was clearly a proud godfather and wrote in the caption: "Christening of our little Tisa today. Family time is everything! Proud of becoming her godfather and godmother."

It's been an emotional holiday season for Aljaz and Janette as the pair have been, until very recently, unable to travel back to Slovenia during the course of the coronavirus pandemic.
