Aljaž hails from Slovenia and is also a seasoned dancer. He too made a name for himself on Strictly Come Dancing. His charisma, strong technique, and genuine love for the art of dance have made him a fan favourite. Aljaž and Janette share not only their love for dance but also something more, they are not just dance partners; they’re life partners. Janette and Aljaž got married in 2017 and their chemistry both on and off the dance floor is palpable. 

Janette and Aljaž were mainstays on Strictly Come Dancing, the beloved British dance competition show, and both joined the series in 2013. They enjoyed 9 remarkable years on the show before Janette bid goodbye in 2021 and Aljaz did the same in 2022.

They have both appeared on Strictly: It Takes Two, which Janette hosts, and more recently, Celebrity Escape to the Country, where they decided to trade their chalet for a charming country cottage. In the series, Janette and Aljaž embarked on an adventure to rural Cheshire. With sparkly wellies at the ready, they explored picturesque landscapes and cozy homes. The show captures their journey as they seek a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of the dance floor. 

Janette recently penned her first book titled Tiny Dancer: BIG World a delightful memoir in which she shares not only her dance journey, but also valuable advice, inspirational stories, and life lessons gleaned from her childhood in a large Cuban immigrant family in sunny Florida to her decision to pursue a career in dance.
