Janette and Aljaz got engaged in 2015 - the year after they joined the ‘Strictly’ team.

They first met while appearing together in stage show ‘Burn The Floor’, prior to signing up for the BBC ballroom show.

Both of them have confirmed their returns to ‘Strictly’ for the new series later this year, alongside AJ Pritchard, Anton Du Beke, Brendan Cole, Chloe Hewitt, Giovanni Pernice, Gorka Marquez, Karen Clifton, Katya Jones, Kevin Clifton, Neil Jones, Oti Mabuse and Pasha Kovalev.

They will be joined by newcomers Amy Dowden, Dianne Buswell and Nadiya Bychkova, who replace departed dancers Joanne Clifton, Natalie Lowe and Oksana Platero.

‘Strictly Come Dancing’ returns to BBC One in the autumn.
