Aljaz Skorjanec, 31, gushed over his gorgeous wife Janette Manrara, as she presents the first-ever episode of Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two after taking over the role from its former host Zoe Ball. The Slovenian dancer shared he will be watching the programme with “tears” in his eyes as he wished his spouse luck.

Aljaz shared a photo of his wife looking glamorous in a turquoise puffball dress and typed: “A proud husband day… it is my Janette’s first @bbcstrictly It Takes Two show today!

“I will be watching it with tears of joy in my eyes. Go and smash it BUCKA. Love you so much and so proud of you! @jmanrara #strictlycomedancing #strictly.”

In response, fans gushed over the public display of affection as they flocked to the comment section.

@Salsalisa1 said: “Good luck tonight Janette I am sure that you will be brilliant.”

@Jestertigs commented: “She will SMASH it can’t wait xx.”

@Georgie.nicholson remarked: “Good Luck @jmanrara you will be amazing.”

The 37-year-old professional dancer – who hosts Strictly’s spin-off show It Takes Two this evening – has been happily married to Aljaz for four years.

However, Janette admitted the pair nearly forced became apart before taking part in the popular BBC reality series.

The star was debating working in Los Angeles at the time, while Aljaz considered returning to his home in Slovenia. But the pair managed to land a place on Strictly just in time.

Speaking to The Sun in April this year, she explained: “Strictly Come Dancing, it saved us. It saved us really, in every way.

“We were going to try the long-distance thing and see what happened.

“So when we got that phone call to join Strictly it didn’t only give us stability workwise, it saved our relationship.”

The married pair joined Strictly back in 2013, the same year Aljaz won with partner Abbey Clancy.

Meanwhile, Janette danced with fashion designer Julien Macdonald.

Janette quit Strictly earlier this year and is now co-hosting its spin-off alongside Rylan Clark-Neal.

She has replaced Zoe Ball, who left the series this year after a decade hosting.

Janette called her new role a “dream come true”, adding: “Although it’s impossible to fill in the shoes of a legend like Zoe Ball, I hope to make her and all of the Strictly fans proud.

“I will miss dancing on that iconic dance floor weekly, but forever grateful to continue being a part of the Strictly Come Dancing family!”

This year’s Strictly celebrities made their debuts on Saturday (September 25) and Aljaz danced with Dragons Den star Sara Davies.

The star had appeared on the BBC dance contest since 2013 when she joined alongside Aljaz, who will continue to perform on the show despite his wife’s absence.
