Gemma Atkinson has dropped the bombshell that her fellow Strictly stars Aljaz Skorjanec and Janette Manrara are looking for a new house to buy… in Manchester!

While speaking on the We Built This City: Greater Manchester podcast to Lisa Morton, Gemma said: "When I did Strictly, I used to dance with Aljaz and we used to rehearse in Manchester and since then every year Aljaz has been looking at places to buy in Manchester because he just fell in love with the city. Him and his wife Janette were like: 'There's no city like it!'"

During the chat about living in the sought-after northern location, Gemma declared: "I wouldn't have it any other way." And it looks as though her love for the city has rubbed off on her dancing pals too!

Their bathroom could rival that of a spa with a dreamy freestanding bathtub and modern textured walls.

The bedroom is extra special as that is where the couple keep their dancing accolades, including Aljaz’s prized Strictly Come Dancing glitterball, which he was awarded when he won the show with Abbey Clancy in 2013.

It is unknown whether Strictly stars Aljaz and Janette would be looking to permanently relocate up north or if they would perhaps be investing in a second home. Watch this space!
