Strictly star Janette Manrara snogs husband Aljaz Skorjanec as they leave It Takes Two

STRICTLY star Janette Manrara snogged husband Aljaz Skorjanec as they left It Takes Two last night.

The duo puckered up as they left the Strictly Come Dancing spin-off show, which Janette has been hosting since she hung up her dancing shoes as a pro earlier this year.

Janette, 37, looked chic in a cream winter jacket and a matching beret as she cosied up to her husband.

She added a pop of colour with her brightly coloured flower power shirt and showed off her stunning curves in tight red leather leggings.

The dancer held hands with Aliaz as they made their way out of the studio after her day of hosting duties.

Aliaz, 31, who is currently bottom of the leaderboard with Dragon Dens' parter Sara Davies, beamed as he strolled alongside her wearing tight black jeans and a black bomber jacket.

He threw a green plaid jacket over his ensemble and finished his look with a black beanie hat.

Janette joined the Strictly family in 2013 and announced she was leaving earlier this year.

Aljaz and Janette were engaged in 2015 and then married on July, 15, 2017.

The pair had an astonishing three weddings in various locations, including Slovenia and Disneyland, when they married in the summer of 2017. 

They'd been together for six years before that.

Meanwhile Janette has admitted that the show SAVED her and husband Aljaž's relationship – and they were on the verge of splitting before signing up.

The pair have consistently avoided the infamous 'Strictly Curse' despite both being stars of the show.

They first met while performing in Broadway's Burn The Floor, and toured the world together – but with the tour drawing to a close Aljaz and Janette faced a difficult long-distance relationship.

While she prepared to jet back to LA, Aljaz was going to return to Slovenia.

Speaking on the Sliding Doors podcast, Janette confessed: "The thought of doing the whole long-distance thing made it hard for us. We were very scared about what was going to happen to our relationship."

But in a twist of fate, Strictly producers spotted them while watching the Broadway production, and asked them both to audition for the show.

The professional dancer shared: "They called me first and asked me to join the show, I didn’t scream but my face said it all. Within 5 minutes they called him [Aljaz] straight after.

"It was a dream come true. Getting Strictly Come Dancing was the most incredible thing, not just for my career but for my personal life and marriage with Aljaz because if it wasn’t for Strictly, I don’t know if we could have worked through the long-distance thing."
