Maybe they arrange to meet up with all their friends and family and start Christmas celebrations early? Nope! According to Janette Manrara, eliminated professionals are busier than ever after they leave the show.

She continued: "Besides doing the group numbers and the stuff on the main show, obviously Aston and I and everyone involved in the Christmas special is really busy doing Christmas special stuff… A lot of people ask what happens when after you get eliminated, well, you're just as busy! I've just not had a day off! So busy in rehearsals, doing Christmas special stuff and still being in the main show – I don't have time to sleep!" Janette and her celebrity partner, Dr Ranj, were the sixth pair to leave the show. Speaking about her dance partner after they were voted out of the show, Janette said: "He is an incredible human being for what he does as an actual job.
