Janette delighted fan with some romantic photos of herself and Aljaz

Last year's COVID-19 regulations mean that the show's dancers all lived apart in order to form a bubble with their celebrity partners. Because Janette made it to the final, she and Aljaz could only speak to each other from a distance for the length of the series.

The couple, who tied the knot in 2017, had intended to travel to America to spend Christmas with Janette's family in the US. However, the government's introduction of tier four restrictions meant that the dancers were forced to cancel those plans and instead spent time at home.

Meanwhile, Janette surprised fans earlier this year when she announced she was stepping away to host It Takes Two, but judging by fans' reaction she's already making her mark.

Following her first show last month, fans raved about how good she was in the role. "Fantastic to see #ItTakesTwo back on our tv screens tonight. Rylan and Janette make a great presenting team," wrote one.

Another said: "Whoever picked Janette to present #ItTakesTwo, pat yourself on the back. She's wonderful," and a third person added: "Having Janette on #ItTakesTwo is such a great move. Knows the pros well and knows all about the dances. Great addition."
