'Strictly Come Dancing' Couple Janette Manrara And Aljaž Škorjanec Talk Engagement And Marriage

Strictly Come Dancing’ couple Janette Manrara and Aljaž Škorjanec have revealed further details about their engagement and upcoming wedding, following his proposal earlier this year.


During an interview with OK! magazine, Aljaž revealed he actually popped the question twice to his fellow ‘Strictly’ star, as Janette’s ring had to be resized.

After waiting 14 weeks to be able to wear her engagement ring, following Aljaž’s proposal at the venue where they first met in 2010, Janette was shocked when he got down on one knee again when the ring arrived back from the jewellers.

“I was in my pyjamas and we were ready to go to bed. Aljaž brought out the box and I just started crying,” she said.

“I picked it up without Janette knowing. So I surprised Janette with an engagement ring twice!”

The pair got engaged in August

The pair also revealed that they have no plans for an extravagant ‘Strictly’-inspired wedding, and guests shouldn’t expect to see them do an impressive routine on the dancefloor.

“I highly doubt that we will do a show-stopping dance as our first dance,” Janette said.

“We try to do that every day at work. so I think our wedding is going to be relaxed,” Aljaž added.

“We aren’t show-offs in any way, so we aren’t planning to do some sort of exhibition dance.”
