Strictly’s Janette and Aljaz share career plans after welcoming first child

Janette Manrara shows baby bump as she checks in with fans

Dancer Janette Manrara is currently pregnant with her first child, and she and fellow pro-dancer husband Aljaž Škorjanec spent the latest episode of their podcast speaking about making preparations before the baby comes.

The famous Strictly Come Dancing couple were joined on their podcast, Twist and Shout with Aljaž and Janette, by baby product expert Marcelle, who is best known for creating the Mum and Me App.

During their discussion, it became clear that while she will soon be giving birth, Janette will be returning to the active world of dance not long afterwards.

Talking about fixing the BBC pair with two buggies for ease of transportation, Marcelle asked: “You’re going away on your own with the baby aren’t you?”

“I’m going away,” Janette confirmed. “And this was a question I wanted to ask you: travel. I am going to be going up and down from London a lot.

“If Aljaž and I go back on tour which is looking likely will happen, I’m going to be on tour a lot,” she added.

“We need good travel products for the baby,” Janette explained, as she quizzed Marcelle on her top tips for products designed for busy parents on the go.

Later on, Janette referred to the long flights that their family would be taking, thanks to both parents hailing from different parts of the world.

“Our child is going to have to get used to travelling,” she said. “Our families are in Miami and in Slovenia.

“I work in London a lot, Aljaž as well – and we’re constantly on tour. So the travel aspect of us having the convenience with a baby is really crucial.”

Back in February, the happy couple shared the exciting news that Janette was pregnant with their first child.


Janette and Aljaž met through the world of musical theatre and dance years before they both appeared on Strictly Come Dancing together in 2013, but only started dating that year.

The pair got engaged in 2015 and married two years later in 2017.

Last year, Aljaž he would be leaving Strictly one year after his wife departed the series to pursue a presenting role on it’s spin-off show, Strictly: It Takes Two.

Twist and Shout with Aljaz and Janette is available to stream now.
